Las Vegas Slot Does Not Pay for 20 Years, Finally Gives Away $2.4 Million

25 August 2014

One of the most well-known slot machines in Las Vegas, the “Lion’s Share”, has managed to attract an impressive number of gaming enthusiasts during the past 20 years. Companies who are interested in buying slot games might like to know that even though this machine was popular for its promising bonus, no one has ever managed to win it until this year. The lucky winners were an American couple who won no less than $2.4 million after playing the “Lion’s Share”.

MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas houses the legendary slot game, spokespeople for the casino saying that they have waited 20 years for the slot machine to offer the grand jackpot. The lucky winners are Walter and Linda Misco from New Hampshire, two gambling enthusiasts who, after playing the slot machine for only five minutes, managed to scoop the amazing prize.

Operators who want to buy slot games should also know that the progressive slot machine is extremely popular in Las Vegas, especially due to the fact that for 20 years it managed to attract an impressive number of players, being played once every five seconds per day.  An MGM Grand spokesperson even said that people who have never played the game before ask where the game is when they come to the casino.

Companies who buy slot games should know that the “Lion’s Share” would soon be retired, and the casino is even considering giving away the slot machine to the winning couple. The CEO also commented on how they feel about their prize, Walter saying that he thought the experience was surreal and he couldn’t believe it actually happened. Walter is a retired farmer who played the lucky game thanks to his wife who encouraged him to give it a try. The spouses were regulars of Las Vegas casinos, as they’ve been coming to Sin City every few months during the last 20 years.
