"Bet the Max!!!"





I went to Atlantic City  and stopped by the Hilton to play some slots, and a lady put $50 in the Wheel of Fortune machine. On a previous spin, she had three 7's but had only bet one coin, so her husband then told her, to "bet the max." So with $35 in the machine, she bets the max--5 lines of .50 each.

She hit the progressive.

$1,114,449.85.

I asked her husband, what he was getting because she listened to him. He said--85 cents!!!

Anyway, it was fun seeing a couple win a million dollars with just one pull of the slot!

And I suppose you could say that I played the wrong machine!

Were they paid in quarters?

hah--actually they get paid in a couple weeks--and the pot, in a lump sum, after taxes, will be about $500,000...The amount they won is actually what they would take over a period of years--just like lottery winnings

but I did have a tinge of regret for not playing the machine!

even though that isn't how slots work!!
