Only the proof and silver issues had an S mint mark and they where issued in special sets. Your coin is a business strike and without a mint mark means it was minted at Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Mint didn't put mint marks on Eisenhower Dollars in 1976.

So your coin is normal and, sorry to say, not a jackpot coin.
