French couple wins €5.5m fruit machine jackpot

A married couple has scooped nearly €5.5 million from a land casino fruit machine in France after putting a single coin worth less that 50c in the slot!

The couple, who wish to remain anonymous, told French media reporters that they were visiting the casino in Bagneres-de-Bogorre, in the Pyrenees as part of a holiday celebrating their 13 years of marriage, and pushed the coin into the slot on a whim.

The resulting jackpot was €5,512,448, a French record for the progressive, which is linked to a hundred other land casinos.
