Default Ain't Love Grand?: Fight Over Jeans Leads to Casino Jackpot

Jan 25, 2:06 PM (ET)

By WAYNE PARRY

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - All week, Sammy Zabib was getting an earful from his girlfriend for forgetting to buy her a pair of designer jeans she spotted in a casino boutique last weekend.

"She was mad," said Zabib, a 42-year-old limousine fleet manager in New York. "We had an argument. More than one."

They're not arguing now.

On a return trip to pick up the jeans and end the grief Friday morning, Zabib won nearly $800,000 playing a slot machine.

He got up at 5 a.m. and drove three hours to Atlantic City, arriving at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa before the boutique, Whim, opened at 10 a.m.

In his pocket was a photocopy of a picture of the jeans that his girlfriend printed out for him, just to make sure there would be no confusion.

With some time to kill, he sat down at a Brazil Slingo slot machine and started playing, betting $4 a spin for about an hour.

"I was just trying to kill time until the store opened so I could get her those jeans," he said. "Then the machine stopped working. I didn't know why, so I called security. They came over, took a look at it, and said, 'You won the jackpot!'"

He called his girlfriend, whom he identified only as Anna, and she started screaming.

"She wasn't mad anymore," he said with a laugh. "She's waiting for me at home now."

After receiving his payout from the casino, Zabib completed his mission, buying the pair of "7 For All Mankind" jeans - Dojo style - that Anna had wanted so badly.

"They're the hot brand right now," said Borgata spokesman Michael Facenda. "They go for $149 a pair."

Zabib doesn't know what else he'll do with his newfound riches.

"Maybe buy her some more jeans," Zabib said.

$4 a spin for an hour to kill time? sounds like a degenerate to me. he was probably wanted to go to the Borg and offered to buy his gf jeans since she woudln't allow him to gamble otherwise

pretty unanimous that she'd be left high and dry...

i'm thinking she has got to be a babe, for him to be as whipped as he sounds.

that, or he's just terrified of her..

Search for jeans brought jackpot
BY PHIL ROURA
DAILY NEWS WRITER

Saturday, January 26th 2008, 4:00 AM


Samih (Sammy) Zabib holds up big check from the Borgata in Atlantic City. He hit the slots after his girlfriend bugged him to go buy her fancy pair of jeans.
Zabib, from Astoria, hit the jackpot on a 2-cent slot machine at the Borgata Friday after going to the Atlantic City casino solely to buy a pair of pricey designer jeans his nagging sweetie Anna just had to have.

Armed with an Internet printout of the jeans she wanted, Zabib got in his car at the crack of dawn for the 2-1/2-hour trip.

"She was mad all week that I had forgotten to buy the pants. We had an argument, maybe more. So I drove down at 6:30 in the morning," Zabib, 42, told the Daily News. "When I got there, the store wasn't open. So I decided to kill some time and play a little."

After about 30 or 40 minutes, "this one machine froze on me. So I got security. He looked up and told me I'd won. I said, 'Won what?' And he said, 'All of it,' pointing to the top. It said $779,000."

Zabib, who fled the civil war in Lebanon 20 years ago, was "in shock."

"My legs started to crumble. I had to sit down or I would have fallen to the floor. This is the most I've ever won. I've won a few jackpots - like $1,500, $2,000 - but never like this."

After verifying his good fortune, Zabib called Anna.

"She was driving to work," he said. "She started screaming. I told her to calm down. I was afraid she'd crash. Thank God she didn't."

Zabib, a fleet manager for a limousine company, estimates he played "a couple hundred" before hitting it big. Although it was a 2-cent slot, he had "maxed out" each spin by playing $4 at a time.

"I come down here once a week because I like the place. I play different machines all night long. But I never look at how much I've lost. If you do that you'll never come back," he added with a laugh.

Zabib plans to send some of his winnings to his mother and sister back in Lebanon.

"I always send them money," he said. "The civil war was tough. I have very bad memories of that. But at least I can help them now."

As for marriage to Anna - he refused to reveal her last name - Zabib thought for a moment before saying, "We don't know yet."

But he finally did get the pants - a pair of $149 Dojo by Seven jeans from the Borgata's upscale and trendy Whim shop. For free.
