One patron's loyalty to a Greektown Casino-Hotel slot machine has finally paid off. 

A man -- who wishes to remain anonymous -- placed a $20 into his favorite slot machine and walked away with $875,527 in cash on Wednesday.

After seeing the winning combo line up while playing Wheel of Fortune Double Diamond, the 50-year-old said he was so shocked he couldn't move. 

When asked what he'll do with the jackpot, the man said he plans to take his family on a trip. 

The man also said he enjoys visiting Greektown thanks to "its friendly team members and great service."
