    The history channel will be filming a segment at the MGM Grand tomorrow (3/14) from 1-5 pm about the Lion's Share machine. They are looking for people to be on film talking about it or playing it. This is from the M Life Facebook page.

    The line is probably already forming. Let's see if anyone dresses up like a lion while waiting in line.

    That sucks it was a secret little machine not many people knew about. Now I'm reading shit about it all the time, and watch its gonna be some turd who wins it that has never played it before and they only reason he played it was cause he saw it on TV. Hopefully it goes to someone that's been pumping up the jackpot for many years.

    Do you think if I go at 3:11 a.m. there'll still be a line?:evillaugh


    Maybe it'll get so bad we'll all have to pick a number. Or maybe there'll be a reservation desk........:poke:

    Sorry, but I hope I'm that turd :). I have been reading about it on this forum for several years and have never made it over there to play it. I'm actually staying at MGM Grand in June - and am always up disgustingly early - so my plans were definitely to pop in a few hundy's each morning if it still hadn't hit.

    I hope it doesn't air for a while, we'll be staying 1 night in May at MGM and I planned on stalking it periodically to try and snag some play on it. If that show airs before May, I'm screwed.

    Was there this past week Mon-Fri and was able to play it on Wed at 3pm with only 1 person in front of me. There is a wall/rail to lean on while waiting, so it wasn't too bad of a wait

    I was there for there for The History Channel shoot and also did an interview. I was told that it was going to air on H2 but they didn't know when, I've been checking ever since. Could I have missed it?

    What was the title of the show?
    The segment could have aired on a number of different shows.
