I was fortunate enough to hit $4000 on Treasure Tunnel, a quarter slot machine on the Carnival Facination in April of 04. I was given the entire $4000 and believe it or not, the casino would NOT give me a check, they said they had to pay me in cash! I promptly placed it in the ship safety deposit box which was free. I was mailed a Wg-2 form, and was required to pay the taxes on this regardless of the fact we were in international waters at the time I won, yet was smart enough to search for every losing scratch ticket I could find when I got back to Massachusetts (most of which I bought, haha), to be able to offset the winning with the loses.
