It’s quite rare for actual footage of huge wins to surface, so by that measure it’s nice to have a video clip of this magic million dollar moment from 2012. The Bellagio win for Cpl. Alexander Degenhardt came just days after he gave bone marrow to an anonymous individual.
“They asked me if I was sure I wanted to go through with it, because it’s kind of painful, but what’s a little pain if it will save someone’s life?” the U.S. Marine said Friday. “I look at this as kind of good karma for that.”
The total win came in at $2,882,808.32 on the Money Vault Millionaires Seven slot machine. Degenhardt, who describes himself as ‘thrifty’ will no doubt be pleased that he decided to splash out with this $100 slots adventure. It led him to riches!
