Missing trope?

When a disaster occurs at a casino (explosion, vehicular destruction, etc.), there is frequently a close-up shot of a single slot machine which has been activated in the chaos and it hits the jackpot (usually triple 7s). Noticed it in 'Con Air', but was unable to find an equivalent listing or category on TV Tropes. I know there are many other examples, but none come immediately to mind.

NOTE: This is similar to the "Jackpot Knockout", but with an inanimate object instead of a person, and the object itself never strikes the machine.

That would be a case for YKTTW.
