New Year’s Eve 2013 has turned into a memorable day for an Edmonton man.

Michael Huppe, 55, won just over $1 million while playing the Diamond Millions slots at the Apex Casino in St. Albert.

Huppe started playing the slots after they were installed at the casino a year ago.

He plans to buy a used truck to replace his old truck that broke down for the second time.
