Million dollar slot jackpot

Million dollar slot jackpot has been foretold long ago in religious text for humanity to watch for certain sign which are to signal that the apocalypse nears – “…and the time will come when the dead will rise from the graves rewarding the righteous and casting the evil doer into the flames of eternal suffering…”

The time may be at hand, and as Osama bin Laden enjoys the warmest ‘flames of eternal suffering’, a Californian man hit a progressive jackpot on a penny slot machine for an amazing $1,127,123 at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. What’s more amazing, is that he hit the jackpot on the birthday of his long dead and buried wife who he believes may have influenced the slot machine.

Mr. George Hayes, who is not of Mexican origin, hit the jackpot on the 5th of May, Cinco de Mayo – the celebration of Mexico’s victory over France in 1862 under General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. However, according to Mr. Hayes, his wife always liked to celebrate this holiday, which was the reason he decided to spend it in her favorite casino.

Million dollar slot jackpot: Ghost or Zombie?

Mr. Hayes, a man so elderly that he may have been a contemporary of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín, stated to reporters that – ‘“Today is my wife’s birthday. She passed away a number of years ago. In 1985, she won a jackpot at a Las Vegas casino for $250,000, which happened to be on my birthday. Seems like it’s happened again, only the other way around.” He proceeded to describe how people were nicer in the 1920’s, when the casino spokesperson intervened.

The casino spokesperson, Ciara Green, explained for Mr. Hayes what really happened – “George simply walked up to a one-cent Super Spin Wheel Of Fortune machine and put in $40 or $50. Not long after that, he watched five Wheel of Fortune symbols line up across the center line and knew it had to mean something big. That was the million dollar slot jackpot.”

When reporters asked Mr. Hayes what he would do with the million dollar slot jackpot he won, he responded – ‘I won? What money?’ Mr. Hayes was always known for his sense of humor, and we wish him the best.

Gambling Pigeons Go for the Jackpot

Oct 19, 2010
Gambling pigeons

A new study has revealed that pigeons are natural gamblers. While they won’t be hitting the slots or betting bread crumbs at poker tables any time soon, they do tend to go for lower odds if the payout is high enough.

Psychologists at the University of Kentucky tested the birds with a simple machine that had two buttons. One was marked with a vertical line, and it paid out 10 pellets 20% of the time. The other button, marked with a horizontal line, rewarded with 3 pellets every time.

Six out of the eight pigeons tested pecked the vertical line most of the time, indicating a natural urge to go for the big jackpot, even though the horizontal line paid out more pellets in the long run. The lure of the jackpot was more appealing to the birds than a safe bet.

According to the psychologists, “The results of these experiments suggest that pigeons show a tendency to make maladaptive decisions similar to those of humans. That is, pigeons prefer a signal for a low probability, high payoff alternative over a signal for a certain low payoff alternative that on average provides 50% more reinforcement.”

Studying gambling behavior in pigeons may help the researchers better understand gambling behavior in people. “There’s a basic behavioral, biological process involved that probably affects many different species, and it doesn’t require the excitement of a casino,” said the researchers.

County magistrate wins huge $79 million Powerball jackpot prize

Sep 02, 2010
Lottery JackpotA county magistrate in Berkeley County, West Virginia, will now be able to retire after winning a huge $79 million Powerball jackpot.

Magistrate W. Randy Smith, 63 years old, cancelled a scheduled vacation when he heard he’d won the jackpot in favor of his incipient extended holiday thanks to the eight-figure payout. Smith made his intention to step down from the bench, a position he was elected to in 2008, known in a fax to his boss, judicial circuit chief judge David H. Sanders.

Smith served as Berkeley County deputy sheriff for 12 years and as county sheriff for eight before the 2008 election.

In an interview with local media, Smith explained that he didn’t want his employees to be “left holding the bag” and that he would “certainly miss the people that I’ve met and worked with over the years. … I’ve just always enjoyed public service, [and] it has been rewarding to be able to help people.”

Smith said he planned to financially assist some family members with his prize, buy a new car and take a vacation overseas. After taking the “cash option” and figuring for taxes, Smith’s winnings amounted to about $30 million. The winning numbers were 07, 10, 12, 22, 27, and powerball 26.

The magistrate’s last day on the job will be September 6.

Mega Moolah Isis progressive jackpot pays out big again at Ladbrokes

Aug 24, 2010
Mega Moolah ISIS Slot

As though it weren’t enough for one lucky Ladbrokes Casino player to take £75,000 on a single spin, as though it weren’t enough that he did it on a free spin earned through a promotion, the big winner also pulled off the feat on a Friday the 13th.

Ladbrokes Online Casino just released a few details – though not the identity – about their £75,000 winner, and it’s a story about beating the odds all the way. The London resident first won in the casino’s “Single Day Prize Draw Promotion,” which offered randomly-awarded £10, £25 and £50 prizes for play on the Mega Moolah Isis progressive slot.

Even stranger about this story is that just last month a Ladbrokes customer hit Mega Moolah Isis for over £88,000 – and that player was also from London! With such a stacking up of coincidences, it’s no wonder magical Friday the 13th paid off in strange ways, one supposes.

A representative for Ladbrokes marketing said that “A £75,000 win on Friday the 13th is amazing. It just goes to show that this day can be lucky for some! We have had so many big winners in the last few months that 2010 is starting to look very good for our customers.”

With a bit more than a trace of worry, Ladbrokes also reminds that the progressive jackpot on the record-breaking Mega Moolah progressive slot has just passed £4 million.
