Whenever we’re at MGM Grand, we can’t resist stopping by to see the world’s most famous slot machine, the Lion’s Share.
The Lion’s Share slot has a storied history, and is the last of its kind. Because of gaming regulations, MGM can’t remove the machine until its progressive jackpot, currently at $2,343,524.12, is won by some lucky player.
The lucky winner not only gets a couple million, but also gets to keep the Lion’s Share machine itself.
Yes, we donated yet another $20 to this painfully tight machine. Partially because the Lion’s Share is sort of a celebrity, but also because whoever wins this jackpot will immediately become a part of Las Vegas lore.
Becoming lore for $20 would be quite the Las Vegas bargain, don’t you think?
