A University of Arizona professor won big in Las Vegas. 

Mitchell Towner won $1.12 million dollars at the World Series of Poker tournament with a pair of sevens. 

Towner says none of his purchases with his winnings will be "super flashy."

Instead, Towner listed paying off his mortgage, investing in the stock market, or upgrading his car.
