Reno rules

50 pennies into a $.01 machine and I hit for 132,290 pennies. And I was just trying to kill time before dinner.

Must've taken forever for 130,000 pennies to spit out. I'm not so sure I'd consider that a win.

I had to fill out a W-2G since it was over $1199. This means I have to find ways to screw over the government come april.

I think you can deduct gambling losses equal to your gambling winnings if you itemize.

I'm just wondering how he did that. I mean, she had to have 6 inches on him, easy.

Gambling is the only thing that truly motivates him. He is unstoppable once he tastes the thrill of defeat, which spurred his following victory.

Now that would be funny if they paid out that much in actual pennies.

Yeah, but $2 a roll would have been hella expensive. This was a fluke and a half.

If you cannot afford the maximum bet on the slot machine....do not bet!!! If you do not bet the maximum and then win, you would have been El Scorcho'd!

You win...but still lose.

Congrats, btw.

I put a C-note in because I was too lazy to find a cashier and get $10s lol

They have the ticket in/ticket out system so it was just easier to bounce from machine to machine.

btw, the max bet philosophy that pedagogue just mentioned only applies for progressive machines, which this was not

Do you normally carry a digital camera with you when you play penny slots?
