For one lucky American couple the Computer finally says Yes - granting them just over 2.4million USD in what has to be the most famous progressive slots machine in all of Las Vegas.
The Lion's Share progressive pokie had almost reached URBAN LEGEND status due to its huge jackpot and refusal to pay it out...surely it had to go off sooner or later?!
The Progressive Slot Machine that's Everything But
While every other slot machine on the MGM Grand Casino floor does what it was programmed to do - and then there's the Lions share.
The Lion's Share was the last of a string of $1 progressive pokies that was installed in 1992 and has refused to pay its progressive Jackpot for over 20 years - that was until August 2014 when Walter and Linda Misco (pictured) took home the jackpot.
In the original article (HERE) we talked about how the MGM Grand were desperate for this jackpot to go off, even stating that they would give the whole machine away to the winners.
Well it appears they are men of their word because sources close to the story say MGM Grand is considering whether to let the Miscos take the machine home with them.
Why did the machine have to payout before being removed?
According to Nevada law, slot machines are required to pay out 75% of the money that goes into them. Now it has relinquished its jackpot, the $1-a-go machine – the only game left from an entire network of slots installed in the early 1990s – will be retired.
