Why is it that people who win big in casinos are people who don't need it? Perhaps it's because they are the only ones who can afford to vacation in those places and spend the big bucks. Over the weekend, Jennifer Lopez's Mother won $2.4 million on the slots in Atlantic City. A few years ago, I was in Vegas and John Elway's wife won a little over 6 million on the slots. She was just passing by a machine and decided to play a few coins. (Actually, now that I think about it, it may have been Joe Montana's wife. It was some retired NFL quarteback's wife, that's all I know.)

I guess it puts it into perspective though when the article mentions that with just her prize, J Lo's mom still couldn't buy the infamous pink engagement ring.
