Even though most slot enthusiasts live normal lives, a handful of players have become global superstars at slotsbaby.com. Some of these stars gained attention through YouTube, while others became household names thanks to massive wins. So, let’s look at five of the most famous slot players on Earth.
Canadian actor and writer Brian Cristopher is currently one of the most popular slot players on the planet. Brian’s made over 1,500 slot videos and has over 185,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel. He publishes new videos about slots every day and conducts live broadcasts once a week.
Another well-known slots YouTuber is Slotlady. Also known as Sarah, Slotlady boasts more than 90,000 subscribers and uploads slot videos daily. She’s released 873 videos so far and loves to share her slot adventures with everyone.
Cheshire soldier Jon Heywood made headlines all around the world in 2015. For not only did he become rich after a 25p spin on a slot game, he also entered the Guinness Book of Records for winning £13.2 million – the biggest online slot win of all time. But Jon, who won the prize on October 6th, decided to go to work the day after his life-changing win and didn’t reveal his good news until three days later. (Soldiers, eh!) Jon spent some of his winnings on medical treatment for his father and he also helped himself to a new luxury car (a Bentley)!
Cynthia Jay-Brennan became famous overnight after winning almost $35 million on a Megabucks slot machine in Las Vegas in 2000. The cocktail waitress got married to her bartender boyfriend and had a wonderful time for the next nine weeks. But then one night when she was driving her car with her sister Lela Jay, a drunk driver crashed into them at a red light. Tragically, Lela Jay died instantly and Cynthia’s was left paralyzed from the waist down. Nowadays, Cynthia has to use a wheelchair to get around, while her husband is still working as a bartender. And Cynthia says she would return the £35 million if she could get her sister back and start walking again.
Elmer Sherwin was labelled ‘the luckiest man in Vegas’ because of his two huge victories on the Megabucks slot machine. In 1989, he won $4.6 million just after the Mirage Casino opened in the Las Vegas strip. Unbelievably, 16 years later, in 2005, 92-year-old Elmer struck gold again after his intuition told him that a machine at the Cannery Casino in Vegas was lucky. This time, though, Elmer won over $21 million. Elmer was a generous soul and donated a lot of money to the Hurricane Katrina relief fund and also gave a large amount of cash to his family. Sadly, he passed away, two years later, in 2007.
