Holy Crap : 21M Megabucks Jackpot Hits at Palms!!!

In all the years we've had our nose to the ground digging out slot jackpot winners all over the world, this has got to be one of - if not THE - biggest jackpot we've ever heard of.

The CBS affiliate in Vegas (channel 8) is reporting that a Vegas tripper from the great state of Texas, Connie Thiele, hit a TWENTY ONE MILLION DOLLAR JACKPOT at the Palms earlier Wednesday afternoon.

She and her husband hoped to get enough points for a freeb lunch, played $150 bucks at another bank then threw a $20 into a Megabucks machine that nobody was playing.

First pull she hit the motherlode.

When asked what she'd do with the loot? Pay some bills, buy a new car and consider reducing her hours at work. Way to stick it to the man Connie... congratulations!

I truly can't wait for the day that one of you guys hit the megabucks jackpot and we get to post a photo of you with a gigantic cardboard check.



Comments & Discussion:

I believe the biggest jackpot was at Excalibur and was around $34 million.

If I hit the MegaBucks or any other large jackpot, I want a real check and not a dang cardboard one. Have you ever tried to fold a carboard check and put it in your wallet, or feed one through the small teller window at the drive through when you go to deposit it at the bank?

We were there when that happened, actually I just got off the plane from Vegas about 8 hours ago. It was crazy. I've been in Vegas for the past 8 days and I swear if I hear one more
DING DING DING slot machine noise I'm going to shoot someone.....
