    Played a $5 double diamond machine in my dad's honor ...or honour for my Canadian and British friends....
    he would occasionally play the $5 machines..not pound em... hopefully that works when I hit the $5 top dollar with her in vegas!

    7 double diamond double diamond... $1600

    Anyway she is a widow (duh) on his pension or half if it and social security... she took standard deduction last 3 years so no write off possibily....

    I recommended she have them withhold the taxes now so now as to not have the shock year... now I am rethinking it.... was my thought process right?

    I believe that you are correct. If she isn't itemizing she'll have to pay taxes on that money because she won't be offsetting gambling losses. Better safe than sorry.

    Yay for mom!

    Good for your mom! My mom also got a handpay on her first trip to Ameristar St. Charles after her favorite brother (and my favorite Uncle) passed away in 2000.

    As for the tax thing...meh, depends on how all her other income is withheld for federal tax purposes. But if she didn't get it withheld, she definitely would be paying Indiana (assuming it was an Indiana boat) state tax next year. Hit up Ameristar St. Charles today myself actually. Saw a guy next to me hit $1500 with dealt Aces w/kicker on triple play DDB. I just have to settle being up $150 I guess. :beer:
