“Meh”, it’s only money….
Not a gambler by nature, but playing slots with a friend visiting from out-of- town, an anonymous man struck it rich!
I am not endorsing gambling in any way shape or form, but it’s what this guy is doing with the money is to be admired. You see, he is using the money to build a sanctuary for his church that is currently meeting in a local high school gymnasium.
I guess it’s apparent the guy’s heart was on others, for the reason he was in the casino in the first place. Most people would have far different uses for the money. But, you know what? It’s not really our money? Have you ever seen a hearse with a U-Haul?
This guy has a little luck and a big heart.
A Las Vegas man plans to donate much of his $14.3 million winnings this weekend to charity, according to the casino.
“It’s just a great story this time of year,” Rampart Casino spokeswoman Jenifer Smith told Yahoo News.
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, also intends to pay for the construction of a new church for his congregation, which currently holds religious services in a high school gymnasium.
He is not a big gambler; in fact, he was only playing the Megabucks slot machine to spend time with his best friend, who was visiting from out of town.
Within minutes, the lucky guy saw $14,282,544.21 flash across the top of the slot machine.
“He doesn’t really play Megabucks,” Smith said. “He just put $20 in the machine, and it hit.”
The casino’s general manager, Michael Gaughan Jr., was in the building to congratulate the winner.
“We are thrilled to be a part of this exciting jackpot. It doesn’t get any better than this,” Gaughan said in a statement.
