Once again another slot player has lost out on the chance of a lifetime. Last week a player missed winning a 7.9 million-dollar jackpot because he as one coin short of the maximum bet required collecting the top prize.
Twenty-two years old Kirk Tolman from Utah inserted only two coins into a Megabucks slot machine instead of the three. He was playing at State Line Hotel and Casino in Wendover, NV. Tolman said he always plays maximum coins but was talking to a friend and not paying attention when he hit the spin button.
"I don't know what I would have done if I would have hit it (the big one)," says Tolman. "It's unbelievable. I would have moved to Hawaii and surfed. I just don't know."
I'm sure Tolman will be giving that some thought for years to come.
Always play maximum coins in a progressive slot machine.
