No casino would be complete without its one-armed bandits, and no fight scene ''in'' a casino would be complete without somebody being knocked ''into'' a slot machine. This invariably sends the reels spinning into a triple 7 jackpot, resulting in a waterfall of coins raining down on the unconscious foe.

This is definitely ''not'' TruthInTelevision -- as modern slot machines rarely dispense actual coinage (preferring in-house chips or paper printout tickets that can be redeemed at the casino cage instead) and are primarily electronic instead of mechanical (so there are few moving parts that a physical impact could jostle). Besides, if getting a jackpot really ''was'' as easy as bashing it, everybody would be doing it, right?

But given that the jackpot itself is a MillionToOneChance, it [[RuleOfCool sure looks cool]] when it happens.


* Appears in the climax of ''Film/TheMask'': BigBad Dorian Tyrell is knocked into a slot machine, which flashes Jackpot.

* A similar, but slightly different, situation. In one episode of ''Series/{{MASH}}'', Frank gets drunk in the Officer's Club, starts dancing with, as I recall, Nurse Kellye, gets Father Mulcahy (at the piano) to play a faster song, and Frank ends up hurtling into the nearby slot machine, which jackpots. Frank is pretty much unconscious by the time the jackpot triggers, though.

* Seen in the climax of the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Joker's Wild", when Batman knocks the Joker into a slot machine.
