Wow...that was depressing on so many levels.

I wonder how much his ex-wife got on the 1st jackpot.

Holy cow that guy was super lucky. Winning so much in one day is just like hitting the lottery. If I were the guy I would be jumping so much happiness.

It all depends on how much he plays it. If he plays 100 million spins it is very likely for him to win it twice.

It said he played $100 a week or month before he hit it the first time. It didn't mention how often he played it after that.

Let's put that in video poker terms. In that many spins/hands I should have averaged about 153.9 dealt royal flushes. I have only one so far.

The video says he passed away at age 93, so I was curious when he hit the second time. A news article I found indicates it was on Thursday, Sept. 15, 2005.
