It's a classic story of a big shot cozying up to a beautiful woman in a casino and, trying to impress her, tells her to do something for good luck.
Gambler Jan Flato supplied the money that went into the Double Top Dollar slot machine at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. But the woman who was nuzzling up to him pushed the button.
So when the bells rang, the lights flashed and the payline showed a $100,000 jackpot, Flato felt like a big winner.
But maybe he should've asked for a kiss or something instead of pushing the button. Because, as it turns out, whoever actually pushes is the rightful winner.
Flato says he was feeding cash into the Double Top Dollar machine, which requires $50 a spin for a shot at the $100,000 jackpot. He says he had met up with Navarro, with whom he frequently played slots, in the center bar, and the pair headed to the Hard Rock high-roller room, where he says he put money into the slot machine.
“Push the button for good luck,” Flato says he told Navarro just before the jackpot hit.
She said she was going to SHARE the money with him, but he immediately started sending her threatening texts so she booked it! Maybe he should've tried asking nicely to start?
