There’s a slot machine at MGM that hasn’t paid out a jackpot in twenty years. With a progressive payout now over 2.3 million dollars, people have been flocking to play this slot for years. But they all keep losing. Gamblers looking for a big payday have been making pilgrimages to this machine -- an outdated Lion's Share three-reel slot machine that most casinos would have abandoned. But until a jackpot is paid, the machine will stay. Rob Copeland from the Wall Street Journal explains the cult status of this legendary machine.

If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
