Generally things like this are considered promotional wins, not gambling wins, and they have a "cash value". Companies are supposed to track all non-gambling payouts because if they reach $600 for a person over the course of the calendar year, the company must issue you an IRS 1099 for the amount won.

Ouch! No doubt I missed something important here. Reaching out to accountant, tax preparer, investments advisors (2) and my wife. Also sent immigration applications to Canada, New Zealand, and Perfectoland. You never heard of Perfectoland? Not surprised, it's an invitation only thing. Some guy named Larry is in charge ;-)

About the Spielo/GTech/IGT machines. Assuming this is based on the way their Must Hit By progressives work...?

That said - recently I saw a family camped out by a Zuma machine for hours and it didn't go in their favor.

I really don't understand why vulturing ultimate x is taboo. Usually only amounts to a few hands and the casino does have a chance to get your money.

Wild mermaid is close to worthless even with decent returns, but can say it can become the worlds biggest scam of a sucker machine when it's super tight. From my experience at Mahoning Valley Race Course, the first time you see zero bonuses on those games, never be tempted again. When the sticky wild on reel 2 becomes prevalent blocking the wild reel from showing, you're totally boned for life until those sucker games are taken out. Kind of cruel removing a very slight advantage and replacing it as the casino's worst machine under any circumstance. Analogous to a carnival trick in my opinion.
