BERLIN, GERMANY- A man playing a slot machine in a casino was literally saved from going to jail by hitting the jackpot. Police say two of their officers were checking an arcade in the city of Bochum and discovered a man playing slots faced an arrest warrant for resisting arrest in a previous incident. He had been ordered to pay a fine of $910 or go to jail for 71 days. As the officers informed him of his imminent arrest, the slot machine began to flash and the man won a jackpot of $1,300. He paid the fine in full on the spot in cash, of course.
