A self-employed Tampa disc jockey won $1.3 million at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino early this morning.  Cory McAlpin, 29, played a $10 spin on the Wheel of Fortune progressive MegaJackpot machine at 4:35 a.m. when he got lucky.

He says he'll donate some to money to medical research (after losing his father to cancer and having a grandmother with Alzheimers disease. He also plans to make a donation to his church in St. Croix in the Virgin Islands, where he grew up.

Of course, he's also planning some fun; McAlpin says he'll take a long-planned trip with a college friend.

Tell us: What would be top on your list if you won $1.3 million?
