One arm bandit delivers record jackpot in France
A French couple struck lucky on their 13th wedding anniversary on Monday, picking up a record jackpot of more than five million euros from a slot machine in the Pyrenees mountains, the casino said.
The winners pocketed 5,512,448 euros (6.8 million dollars), a French record, from a one arm bandit in a casino in southwestern Bagneres-de-Bigorre, part of a network of 100 casinos that are hooked up to offer mega-jackpots.
The last French record for a slot machine jackpot was just over three million euros.
