    Wow, just saw this pop up on my Facebook. (https://www.facebook.com/ARIA/photos/a.283204598968.176782.148898868968/10153184460028969/?type=1&theater) Coincidence that this was around Lunar New Year or perhaps Aria planned this to hit around this time of the year? ;) jking... not(?) but I have never seen a picture of such a large hit! Would have loved to see it in person for an experience.

    How much does it cost to spin this machine? Has anyone personally fed their hard earned money to this guy chasing the dream? :nworthy:

    It's a WAP, such as MegaBucks...It looks like it was $3.40 per shot (or around there, at least; maybe $5 max), penny machine. Just hit the absolute jackpot.

    I played these the night before it hit, I think it was $3.00 spin, penny machine, since I remember it was more than the regular hot shots at bellagio and such which I think are $2.00.

    I didn't realize it's also linked with other machines like Titanic and Michael Jackson so it's kind of like a mini-Megabucks with different faces.

    Imagine that kind of "life changing money". How would your life change? Quit working, moving to a nice Summerlin villa, buy a boat and make daily boat trips on Lake Mead? I wouldn't mind being faced with dilemma's like these :)

    I had this talk with someone yesterday. She read about a guy who won big money and immediately had a $300,000 meal. Honestly, my eating habits wouldn't change. I'd quit my job, buy a nice house, car, travel the world, but things like what I eat or how I dress, don't think it would change all that much.

    The guy rumored to have done that is the owner/founder of vice magazine and I want to say is worth hundreds of millions / maybe billionaire.
