Depends on the casino and slot machines. Some machines pay up to a specific amount in coins. After that you hit the button and the staff comes to give you a receipt. If the machine has ran out of coins, they are refilling it also, and then you hit the cash out button.

I love stories like this. He got burned because he didn't know the rules, and he thought that a woman thirty years his junior was on board? He must think he's a real Casanova if he believes she was by his side because of love or friendship or whatever. A fool and his money are soon parted.

i kinda think that this old dude believed that his semi standing salami and a weekly purchase of new stockings and a used thong has completely turned this young girls mind and she has become a loyal servant of his. well as they say...i pity the fool

Posted by damosk: Great story and one of the kind found only in the great state of trumpington! So, here is where this story bothers me. The manager says, "When you put your money in the machine there is no wager, but whoever hits the button the wager actually happens.� So, Mr Manager! Where is the button that I hit to retrieve my money when I decide I do not want to press the play button on this occasion?
good point ! i never knew this rule and i also think thats not right.
this story made me laugh. i guess even if he was a young good looking guy, she would take the money. the best friendship can end quickly and turn into hate or a fight as soon there is money involved. always funny to see things like that..
