I'd Hit That...

...Sight Unseen.

Nevada woman hits $33 million jackpot at casino

SPARKS, Nev. – A woman who had planned to spend a quiet Easter at home is $33 million richer after hitting the second largest Megabucks jackpot in history at a Nevada casino.

Slot machine maker International Game Technology says 38-year-old Rachael Renee Romanick hit the jackpot Sunday night at Terrible's Rail City in Sparks.

Romanick says a friend persuaded her to join him at the casino that night. She says she had been playing the machine for about 10 minutes when she landed the big prize.

The largest jackpot ever won was $39.7 million at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas in March 2003.

IGT says it's pleased that the "life-altering prize" went to a local resident.

Her friend probably has that all locked up.

Coincidentally I just saw the episode of Dick Van Dyke where Buddy's brother comes to visit (old pool hustler, among other things) and what caused him to go straight was his girl, said he could either continue the life he'd been leading or he could marry her and go live with her and her 2.5 million inheritance (of course that was almost 50 years ago, so it was worth a lot more...)

Money don't buy happiness, but it does make the unhappiness easier to deal with.

The most honest statement I've heard in a long time.

Mercedes Benz, enough said.
