    Did you mean on a game type or single JP?

    If it's single JP our team hit a $485,000 JP at the Flamingo Hilton, which was moved money from ALL the progressives at the O shay's Casino when they purchased it. They took the money they were obligated by gaming control to give to customers and put it all on one slot machine. One of our competitors found it first and locked it up, but we staged a bomb threat (NOT MY IDEA) and got the machine and hit it for a cost of about 25K.

    Here, I'm counting the JP my player hit as mine as they only got a wage to play for me.

    If it's a game type you're asking about, I know people that have made upwards of 5 Million in Australia playing MHB (Must Hit By) Pokies that reset to $15,000 and had to pay out by $25,000.

    Oh full disclosure: I did not get the full profit from that play as I was only the team manager and was on 20% commission of profits with no potential loss. LOL.

    Most of the "gambling" I've done had no potential for loss.

    But how much was given baack or had been lost before ?


    Fortuna is fickle and always asks back what it has given .


    Where are the estates of those winners ?


    They are writing memoirs how they won but not the cost of the win.


    That`s the truth about gambling .

    Fortunado was a bank of machines. On the Flamingo Play we lost 25K to Win 485K for a profit of $460.000.

    Is that what you're asking, or were you not talking to me?

    $2,500 with no investment. Or not much anyway maybe a couple dollars. I don't play the slots and I was waiting for my wife about 22 years ago and I stuck a dollar in a machine because I was bored and I won $2,500. I got the money put it in my pocket I never put another dime in a slot machine. I have learned from my wife what not to do if you win. When she wins she'll stand there and start betting like crazy with the money she just won because she thinks she's on a winning streak. It never pays off for her even once so I knew just to stick the money in my pocket and leave. The icing on the cake was in those days lots the Indian casinos were not sending in the paperwork to the IRS they were just throwing it away cuz it was too much work. Because this happened in January by tax time 15 months later I totally had forgot about it and I never heard from the IRS because they never heard about it either. The casinos ended up getting in big trouble and they report everything now.

    My partner won $10,200 today from $50 buy in. Nice Happy Easter bonus.

    Personally I can't stand slots or any EGM's.
