    My wife went to the bathroom in the Flamingo this evening and whilst I was waiting decided to put $100 in a 1c slot machine, I then proceeded to select the 100 line button and the reels span, next I see on the screen $1590 jackpot call attendant, I thought this was really odd as the line hit wasn't good, after a few minutes I realised the big mistake I had made, can you spot it?

    Yup it was a $1 slot, I would have only had that one spin, it's a good job it paid off as I would have sat there wondering where the hell my $100 had gone!

    It was right next to the 1c machines I bet I am not the only person to have done that!

    Yeah I rarely get lucky like this. I lose most of the time in these scenarios.

    Congrats!

    I bet we've all done it. It's awesome when it works out though. I hate those single line VP machines with a 25 or even 100 credit max bet. Used to you could sit down at VP and just hit max. Now you have to check because as far as I know most of them don't have any extra bonus for playing over 5 credits.

    My SO has done this too. Mistaken a 1c machine for a $1 machine, that is, not won a jackpot like that.

    Lucky you. If that was me, it would be one spin and done.

    I thought I was playing a 2 coin quarter machine at Wynn that was $25. Didn't realize until the second spin. Wasn't a lucky mistake but I got my $100 back and $25 profit.

    Congratulations on the hit!
