Not a bad return on a $40 investment.

Last night, Josephine Crawford, a Galloway Township, N.J., grandmother was playing nickel slots at Harrah's Atlantic City when she won the biggest jackpot in city history.

The prize, $10,010,113.48, had been building for years among machines electronically linked at various A.C. casinos, said Harrah's spokeswoman Alyce Parker.

The jackpot smashed the previous record of about $8.5 million, won more than a decade ago by a Long Island doctor at the Golden Nugget, which later became the Hilton.

Crawford plans to visit Italy with her grandchildren, Parker said.
