Real World Las Vegas cast member wins $7.9 million at Aladdin’s casino.
A cast member of The Real World Las Vegas hit the jackpot on a $1 Megabucks slot machine at the Aladdin casino Friday, winning $7,986,899 on a $3 spin. However, a Bunim-Murray staff member said that the win will probably not be on the show, which debuts this summer. “What happens around our cast or to them is not really what The Real World is about,” the staffer said. The cast member found the winning $3 while swimming around the Bellagio fountains because he spent all of his money and his parents’ 401(k)s on The Price is Right and Texas Tea slots. The staffer said producers are currently dealing with a bigger crisis: The “virgin” is now working as a prostitute, and thus she’s not filling the role they cast her for.
