Huat Ah! Lucky bastard hits RM730,000 slot machine jackpot over CNY

Gong xi fa cai, y’all!! How did you spend your Lunar New Year? If you’re anything like us, you may have spent it inebriated, albeit well fed, falling victim to your friends’ far superior mah jong game. Those are the breaks!! (At least we got some ang pow out of the whole thing.)

Well, unlike us, for one lucky person, some holiday gambling proved rather fruitful when they won RM730,000 (US$180,000) on the slot machines during a trip to gambling-oasis-on-a-hill Genting Highlands.

Behold, a video of the big win, and everyone in the damn shop losing their minds over the jackpot.

Congrats, gambler.

Gotta know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em — and know when a slot machine just feels lucky, apparently.
