Paul Newey Loves Slots

Filthy rich Big One For One Drop entrant enjoys a good tug.

UK businessman Paul Newey jumped into the high-stakes poker tournament limelight by, essentially, making the 2012 Big One For One Drop $1M tournament his first ever live event.

That’s a pretty big introduction to the world of poker and he’s been putting up results, including a 7th place finish in the 2014 version of One Drop, and logging time on the felt ever since.

But if you look at Newey’s Twitter timeline (@TOPDOLLARMAN) there may be one other thing he enjoys more than going deep in a tournament – a good pull at the the high stakes slot machine.

Yep. That’s about an $83K win right there. But that’s just the first of many…

As you’ll see, Newey isn’t sitting in the slot machine pool with the Grandma grinders. He’s in the high-stakes section and when he hits – the man hits big. Check out some of these nice scores that Newey has posted over the past couple of months!

But it’s not just slot machines that Newey bets (and wins) big at…check out his Keno score from just before the One Drop.

Or a pair of video poker hits that even Allen Kessler would be proud of…

Newey’s timeline is full of massive high-rolling non-poker scores…which begs the question as old as time itself: “But how much did you lose?”

Thanks to Kevin for this one!
