High Roller Scoops $540,000 Jackpot On $1,000 Slot Machine Over Consecutive DaysJune 15, 2010 10:31 am
Sheldon J. Burnett of Hollywood has proved the old adage ‘lightning never strikes twice in the same spot’ is not entirely accurate, after winning $540,000 on a Triple Diamond $1,000 Slot Machine, over two consecutive days at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
On June 9, the high roller was playing the $1,000 a spin machine in the high-limit slots room at the Hollywood casino in Florida, when he won $360,000.
The next day, Mr Burnett decided to try his luck once more, this time scooping a further $180,000 on the same Triple Diamond machine to complete a very successful week’s gambling.
High roller slots are usually the domain of the elite gambler, as the thrill of seeing $1,000 disappear at the touch of just one button would be enough to make most gamblers go a little weak at the knees.
However, for Mr. Burnett playing on the Triple Diamond $1,000 Slot Machine, is an ideal way to relax in his spare time. It does help, of course, if you’re not short a dollar or two, and describing the high roller on stardustpictures.com, the website states:
“Sheldon J. Burnett is an entertainment attorney & music producer in the state of Florida for 7 years. Currently he runs and manages one of the largest private discretionary funds investing in market securities, real estate and recently in film.”
Nonetheless, Mr Burnett still seemed to get a major buzz from his double victory and said he might now buy his lucky slot machine and take it home as a happy reminder of his famous win.
