    oh, when we were there, at the Stellaris, one night some kid not older than early 20's put three dollars in the dollar slots and won $10,450. Of course he facebooked the heck out of the screen on the slot machine. If that was me, I'd take the money and get out of there. He didn't hit the collect button for like an hour, just letting the machine ring and ring and ring. Oh, youth. He probably bought drinks for all his friends. Then a couple of nights later, also at the Stellaris, some woman won $12,000 on a dollar slot machine. Unfortunately I prefer to shop so when I gamble I play the pennies so that isn't going to happen to me.

    i am surprosed that the marriott would allow him to photograph.
    that is usually a big no no

    good for them though.........isn't that great 2 big wins there.

    paul and i were at the hard rock (here in tampa) with friends 2 days ago and saw a man win $10,000 on penny slot...an 80 cent bet.
    so there is hope gaby!

    the hard rock
    slots and cards only
    no dice
    it is a HUGE casino and hotel complex

    The 190,000+ square foot casino is the fourth-largest in the United States and sixth-largest in the world. It features over 5,000 Vegas-style slot machines and over 110 tables, offering Blackjack, Mini and Midi Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, Let It Ride, 3-Card Poker, Texas Hold 'Em and more.

    lol, thanks andrea. there is hope. The kid had his phone and was taking pictures of the three wild cards showing. I assumed he would be facebooking it, that's usually what the kids do.
