ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - Jennifer Lopez's mother won a $2.4 million jackpot while playing $1 slots at Atlantic City.

Guadalupe Lopez, 58, of New York, was playing Wheel of Fortune at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa when she hit for $2,421,291.76 just before 8 p.m. Saturday, according to the casino.

Casino spokesman Michael Facenda denied knowing of any relationship between the jackpot winner and pop celebrity Jennifer Lopez. But Us Weekly and People magazine report in upcoming issues that Guadalupe Lopez is Jennifer's mother.

Jennifer Lopez's publicist, Rob Shuter, declined to comment Monday night.

Us Weekly reports that Guadalupe Lopez plans to use a portion of her winnings to start a $100,000 college fund for her two grandchildren.
