The $600,000 Quarter - A True Story By Rocky Ramsey
My father has what can only be described as fantastically good luck or horribly bad luck. You'll have to be the judge with this one. This is a true story.
Several months ago my parents went to a Biloxi casino and were waiting in line for breakfast. The casino, being thoughtful for its guests, not to mention making a few extra bucks for the casino, had a line of slot machines that could be played while people waited in line to get into the restaurant.
Dad decided to play a progressive slot machine while he waited. He dropped a few quarters in, but wasn't winning very much. Then he dropped in two quarters and pulled the handle. Maybe it was his lucky day. The first wheel came up Jackpot. The next wheel came up Jackpot. The last wheel came up Jackpot. He got all three Jackpots! $600,000!!!!! That's what he would've won if he'd put three quarters in the slot machine. Because he only put two quarters in the slot machine, he didn't win anything. Nothing. Nada. Not only that, he lost the two quarters in the slot machine. I guess that's why they call it a one-armed bandit.
