Guy Wins $5.15 Million Jackpot, Other Guy Unplugs Slot Machine

Attorney Hits $5.15 Million Jackpot, Casino Owner Claims


If you've ever been in a serious casino, then you've seen the gigantic slot machines off in the corners (the ones that only accept large-denomination bills). These machines usually have something like spinning cars on top or giant screens showing millions and millions of dollars counting up all the time. Such a machine was precisely the type that Illinois attorney Alvin Paulson put a $20-bill into while on vacation in the Virgin Islands. To his surprise, it lit up and started spitting out quarters -- that is, until a casino worker unplugged it and said it was a malfunction.

The machine was showing a $5.15-million jackpot when Paulson fed his $20 bill in there, an awfully big payout and an awful lot more than the $100 and a free meal that the casino offered him for the supposed malfunction. The casino has yet to offer any proof of said malfunction and Paulson is, naturally, suing the place for either said proof or the $5-million prize.

We wish him the best of luck.

That's grounds for an old-fashioned beatdown. Hope he gets his winnings plus a few extra mil for that BS

that would be quite the sack of quarters he would have to carry out.
