Couple Wins Over $2 Million on Famed Slot Machine


By KMVT News

Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN) - A lucky couple is leaving Las Vegas as millionaires after doing what no one has been able to do in 20 years...
The couple hit the jackpot on the MGM Grand's famous Lion's Share slot machine.

Walter and Linda Misco of New Hampshire were the lucky winners. They'll now go home with two-point-four-million dollars.

"I walked her over here to show her the machine, so she didn't actually have any idea until she looked at the machine. I'm afraid i can't tell you the exact words that she used but it began with holy."

The Lion's Share is the last of 50 progressive slot machines custom made for the MGM 20 years ago.

The others were removed 15 years ago but it stayed because no one had hit its progressive jackpot.

The slot machine is headed for retirement.
