Exes, gambling debts, taxes, etc....
This feeling is heavy, makes my body ache and I'm ready; To fall into the sky and I see now, the reason why. My heart is heavy, takes me to a place I can't breathe. Only then I know why I see the warning sign.

This happens at Resorts World in NYC all the time.

Players offer cash to anyone willing to cash in their tickets.

One offered me $100 to cash in his ticket. I declined.

An old timer that I knew there, became a 'go to' guy for cashing tickets.

A nice little side business.

Apparently, the state of Ohio seized over $2 million in W-2G jackpots from its 10 or so casinos in 2015 and distributed the money to several thousand children.

Yeah, I guess this is no urban legend story, Wizardofnothing. It happens countless times a day.

I've heard the Caribbean stud story for years. The other one i hear alot is a blackjack player betting minimum lets another player bet $500 on his hand. He then gets a 20 and tells the bigplayer give me 200 or I'll hit the 20.I suppose the bj story could be true.
What we've got here is failure to communicate

Some states you go to jail for non-payment of child support - about a month or so which is enough time to lose employment if you have it so I can see hightailing it out of a casino. In NYC, there is no jail time in general so people try to have others cash their jackpot tickets (the tickets in NYS are also handed out by the machine and are not linked to the person until brought to the cashier.)

Okay, so here is an urban slot machine legend I heard.

Guy just finished his Vegas vacation with the family. They are all patiently waiting in the airport for their return flight and the guys 7 year old kid keeps bothering him he wants to play the slots which in Vegas are located in the terminal of the airport.

After repeatedly denying the kid, the father cant take the haranguing of his kid and figures it cant hurt to get the kid off his back. He hands him a fiver and tells the kid to knock himself out.

The kid sticks five bucks in a slot, hits max spin and wins a million dollar jackpot.

The dad rushes over and practically knocks the kid out the seat and onto the floor, stuffing himself into the machine chair. But of course, the slot company checks the cameras and upon seeing the spin was played by the under-age minor, declares the spin null and void.

Perhaps based on a bit of truth...

"A young man who hit a big one at Caesars Palace in 1987 was denied his prize because he was underage. Kirk Erickson, a 19-year-old from Royal, Arkansas, lined up the winning combination on a dollar slot machine called "The Million Dollar Baby," but he was not paid the $1,061,812 jackpot for it. Erickson took the matter to court, and in 1989 a District Court judge ruled against him."

This was, more or less, an episode of Full House.

Also, I'm surprised there's no mention of the slot player who would have won Megabucks/some other large jackpot except that he/she played only two coins instead of three. IIRC, there is one documented instance of this happening; I think the player just got distracted and didn't realize he hadn't played max credits.

Here's another: a VP player is dealt a straight flush, but is so used to the online versions where cards in paying hands are automatically held for you that he can't figure out why the machine isn't doing anything, and when he hits the draw button, all five cards are discarded. Oh, wait...change "straight flush" to "full house," and that's what happened to me three years or so ago at Silverton.

This apparently did happen.

At least once, Megabucks has been hit by someone playing less than full coin. On 14 March 2001, Kirk Tolman, a 22-year-old Utah man, mistakenly played two dollars instead of the Megabucks-requisite three on a machine at the State Line Hotel and Casino in Wendover, a gambling establishment in Nevada just across the Utah state line. The Megabucks symbols lined up on the payline, and he won $10,000 instead of $7.96 million.
