Entire state of Maryland is under a state of emergency declaration due to storm damage and high winds but a man was playing blackjack for two hours and risked a five dollar chip on the Progressive bet winning just over one million dollars. Winds howling outside as he posed with a giant check.

Gee, a great big check and a big bundles of cash....I guess casinos do like to "milk" stuff like this for all the publicity it is worth.

Does anyone know if you can refuse taking pictures with big ass checks for a big jackpot payout? Like a WoF or Megabucks? I think for lotteries it's a state law in some places that you have to show up with a picture holding a giant check or something.

Fun fact: I've had slot attendants ask me if I want to get a picture taken for a $1200 jackpot.... bruh

I did hit a $5 royal and the slot manager person in a suit just wanted a picture of the machine, but didn't ask if I wanted to be in it.

I have often wondered this myself. I tend to think you could as I have never seen anything that disclosed you had to do so. Given everything else they disclose you would figure it would have come out that you do by now. IMHO people that win are happy for the attention and do it, or just do it to go with the program; but a firm "no thanks" would stop all pics except on the biggest wins.

Lotteries usually the winner has to be public, dunno about the pic and the check. If it was a law I'd grow a beard, let my hair go long, and wear sunglasses for the pic.

Heck, even if there is fine print somewhere they ain't a gonna make you pose if you really don't want to. They can't publish a scowl, only a smile. Its just a way for them to get "mileage" out of any really big payout. The film is cheap but it goes to newspapers, their blog, the wall in some casino entry way, etc.

She blew it by signing her name on the ticket. One way to be anonymous is to open a trust or claim it in the name of a corporation.
