It's truly a statistical anomaly.

Still unclaimed. I play this slot every time I go to Vegas.

Not because I think I'm gonna hit it, but because it's easily the loosest slot I've played on the strip. A good way to rake up those MLife points.



This doesn't surprise me as "casino win" on dollar slots has increased a few percentage points in the last ten years. It's very possible they've never adjusted the payout of that slot.

They should send it to Christies for auction...

I don't know if this is true or not, but according to this article:

Wait. The article doesn't say that you get to keep the machine. You took the quote completely out of context. Ever thought of working on political campaigns?

I did? That's what it said under the picture of the Three-Bars near miss. It said, "Rumors, maybe facts," so I said, "I don't know if this is true or not." I'll call them again a bit later and ask.

Exactly. It is a rumor, or possibly a fact. They also have contradicting statements in there (the machine is loose; the machine is tight), so obviously not all the statements are true.

So, we can conclude that you do or don't get to keep the machine. Which we knew before :)

Considering it should be against Nevada state law for an individual to own it, I'd assume it's a rumor.

But if this thing is still around my next trip, screw it, I'll play for at least 10 max wagers. I'll just have to remember to bring $30 in singles apparently.

Just make sure to play before you hit the strip club and you should be fine :)
