    Wonder what his bet was. I assume you would need to play max to win a progressive like that.

    Probably an $8.88 max bet, which makes the term “penny slot” feel a little misleading

    Must have been building up awhile or was it linked to other locations? Looks like it reset to just over $11,000 in the photo.

    It is technically possible to win the grand jackpot at any bet on these games.

    A friend posted photos on instagram and the winner won it in a bonus... spin 8 of 9 at max bet ($8.80) and the screen filled with the top symbol. This wasn't the progressive after all! Screen Shot 2020-06-28 at 9.45.19 PM.png Screen Shot 2020-06-28 at 9.45.28 PM.png

    Holy carp!

    I'd like to know what the odds of that are. I didn't even know it was possible to win more than the top progressive prize on those types of machines but I'm not a big slot guy.

    Definitely a lot harder than hitting the grand! In the replay pic you can see random numbers above each reel. I wonder if those are the "stop numbers". So there is a good chance there is 55 or more stops on each reel. If only one position gives 5 of that symbol on the reel (I really don't know). Then the odds of doing this on a 55-stop per reel game on a single spin would be 1 in 55^5 or 1 in 503,284,375.

    Odds I'm willing to take too.... as a 3 time GRAND winner (88 fortunes, 5 treasures and lock-it-link)... bring me this baby!

    I actually know another person that hit the same screen at Desert Diamond in Tucson back in Dec. 2019. Here's her screen she shared with me. Can lightning strike 3 times... if so please pick me! :D
