A Vadnais Heights woman won big in Las Vegas on Valentine's Day. 

Shannon Stachowiak hit the Mega Progressive jackpot on three card poker at Bally's Las Vegas, winning $231,459, a tweet from the casino says. 

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Stachowiak was in Vegas with her husband celebrating their wedding anniversary when she won the prize Saturday night. 

She played the game for about 30 minutes before hitting the jackpot around 10 p.m. 

With her winnings, the first thing Stachowiak plans to do is pay off her car, KTNV says.

Stachowiak credits her husband for being her good luck charm, FOX 5 says. And when asked what advice she has for others, she said, "Good luck baby."
