A New Hampshire couple won $2.4 million on Friday when the Lions Share slot machine finally paid off after two decades on the MGM Grand casino floor in Las Vegas.
The Lions Share slot was one of 50 of same-themed machines that were custom-made for the MGM Grand casino in the early 1990s. It became famous for refusing to ever hit jackpot. All the others have since been removed, leaving the sole Lions Share the oldest reel machine among the 1,900 slots on the casino floor.
Now, the winning couple (Walter and Linda Misco) not only take home 20 years of money, but the machine as well.
