Blazing 7’s had a big winner!
The rich allure of slot machines is certainly rather appealing. With their seductive bells and shimmering surfaces, most of us find their beckoning sounds hard to resist. When is the last time you entered a casino and didn’t drop at least a few dollars into a chiming slot machine, just to experience the rush of pulling the lever? Gamblers are more prone to play on quarter machines, or the expensive but well paying dollar slot machine. While most people steer clear of penny machines, knowing that the odds of winning exist, but are very small, one guy tested his luck. His meager gamble on a slot machine turned pocket change into hundreds of thousands of dollars!
The Empire City Casino in Yonkers, New York recently witnessed a very happy event. The scenario includes one fellow with lady luck on his team and a Blazing 7’s penny machine. Mr. Manuel Esteche dropped a measly $2.50 into a penny slot machine and tried his luck. Upon pulling the joystick, hope in his chest and dollar signs in his eyes, Esteche began to hear the ding, ding, ding of a win! Glancing at the screen he could not believe what he saw. Manuel Esteche gambled a few dollars and earned a whopping $571,049.05 profit on a winning slot machine! The investment that could have been spend on drink tips, paid off big time for this lucky casino goer!
Test Your Luck
Manuel Esteche now holds the title for the largest penny slot-machine payout, his earnings topping the previous record holder Moosue Stefern from Bergenfield, New Jersey. Esteche has nearly $70,000 on the previous champion. So, the next time you pass a penny machine to try your luck on a quarter slot, think again! Take a gamble on a cheaper machine and you could hit it big!
