Do you ever have that feeling that you can’t catch a break in a casino? And conversely have you ever been on a roll to the point where you felt like you couldn’t put a foot wrong? Perhaps your number came up twice on the roulette wheel, or you got a three of a kind in three card poker. Those really are the casino moments we all try to capture!
Some people experience next level luck though, luck I could only dream of… luck on steroids! One such person recently experiencing this midus touch is a Florida man who won a cool $1.2 million on a $20 per spin slot machine at Hard Rock Casino, Biloxi, Florida. Few people were in the high slots area at the time, so there was no big fanfare for the huge windfall.
Due to local gaming rules on big wins, the lucky man, known as Fred S, had to wait for the win to be verified by the gaming commission. Fred however waits for no man, and decided to keep playing on a nearby slot machine, figuring that he should move away from the one he just cleaned out. In a ‘lightning strikes twice’ moment, Fred almost immediately won another $14,000. Talk about having a good day!
“When the stars shine on you they shine,” , said Nick Polcino, vice president of casino operations.
I’m still waiting for my Fred S moment! It’s more likely to occur during one of my ‘virtual visits’ via online casinos really, as I don’t often get to live it up in a bricks and mortar establishment!
