    Not talking about the money, im talking about the physical slot machine that the MGM have promised to be eventual winner.

    Would you sell it? keep it in your living room? Donate it to a Vegas museum?

    Keep it, display it proudly. What a conversation piece!

    I'll surround it with my new house. Will confirm this weekend when the Lions line up for me.

    I'd sell it to CET and tell them it's guaranteed not to hit for 15 years!

    My wife would snatch part of the winnings & renovate our 30 year old home.

    Then I would expand my bar & make it the centerpiece -- kind of like a little pagan shrine.

    Then I would have a little recording of, "you're in the money, you're in the money.....".

    At 5:01 p.m. Daily we would start the song, salute the victorious machine, and commence happy hour!

    It would definitely go in the game room! It would probably also fund a few upgrades such as a custom pool table and probably a companion gaming machine of some kind.

    I'd probably ask the Clark County Museum if they'd like it. Or head over to Gold & Silver Pawn and swap it for store credit. No way I'd let that ugly thing in my house, no matter how rich it made me.

    Rick would give you about $100 after he calls his buddy that's an expert in old slot machines.

    I've thought about this before, figured I was the only one...

    I would hold a free sweepstakes for VMB members.

    I wouldn't want to keep it at home because of the noise and increased electricity costs (although 2.3 million would defray some of the electricity costs). I also wouldn't want to advertise I won a giant jackpot.

    I would probably decline taking it.

    How much street value would it have? Probable nothing.

    Similar to donfairplay, I would auction it off to LVMB members but donate the proceeds to Sonya for the LVMB costs and maintenance. I never would have known about it if it were not for this site.

    I would probably keep it awhile and then sell it to the highest bidder.

    If a museum actually wanted it, which I have doubts that they would, then I would give it to them. Otherwise I don't know... I wouldn't be that interested in taking it home.

    Auction it off with the proceeds to the appropriate ironic charity: the Lions Club.

    I would put it in my treehouse casino to which I'd invite all my little friends.

    Robert Goulet is opening!
