$11,800,000 at the Fremont on 8/8

Er, if this is in another thread, could somebody reply with the link to it? I don't want to start parallel threads, but I couldn't find it mentioned anywhere else on the site.

From the article:

“The Fremont has awarded many thousands of jackpots throughout its 60-year history in Las Vegas, but none quite like this,” Fremont vice president and general manager Jim Sullivan said in an press release. “We’re incredibly excited to be a part of this amazing jackpot.”

Doesn't IGT pay this out? Not the Fremont.

Where does it say the Fremont is paying it?

Read the first sentence. They make it sound like they're paying it.

They better check the cameras. That guy looks like he could slip into the machine and dial the winning combo.

I've always wondered, do the machines do anything interesting besides lockup when they hit the megabucks?

I think they should, if they don't. Air raid siren? strobes. Start mechanical voice, "WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER" over and over.

The sentence where they say they have AWARDED many jackpots? That first sentence?

IGT does pay the jackpots, but I don't think the article sounded misleading. Of course, the Fremont has been paying revenue share for years.
I heart Crystal Math.
