An Escondido man turned 60 cents into six figures at a San Diego-area casino.

Stanley Czapiewski had only played 60 cents in a penny slot machine when suddenly the machine notified him he'd won the $733,000 "Colossal Coin" jackpot.

The "Colossal Coin" is a jackpot that slowly creeps up to $1 million every time someone plays.

Czapiewski and his wife recently bought a home and say the money will help them buy new furnishings and a couple extras.
