Las Vegas is a shrinking violet, said nobody, ever! Certainly not when it comes to gambling and casino wins anyway.
Now, I'm not the betting sort. If I was then I would probably lose my car, house, family and everything in between (not necessarily in that order). It's therefore better, for everyone's sake, that I stay ignorant and don't go back to Las Vegas anytime soon.
While most of us leave the city broke, hungover and regretful (to say the least) - one woman on the other hand departs sin city with a little more adoration, and her purse $10million heavier.
The woman from Oahu, Hawaii, who has decided to remain anonymous, tried her luck on an IGT Megabucks Wynn Wheel machine on Sunday night at The Wynn, Las Vegas.
She placed a $3 bet and only hit the fucking jackpot for a total payout of $10,777,270,51, reports the Daily Mail.
At least $1 million of her earnings will go straight into state funds as Hawaii imposes an 11 percent tax rate on casino winnings. She'll just have to cry into the rest of her winnings about that.
Sorry to every lad out there who has blown their cash thinking they could beat the slots. My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
