Question $5,000 slots - Do they exist ?

In 2006 Golfer John Daly's Biography "My Life in and out of the Rough" hit the shelves.


My Life in and out of the Rough: The Truth Behind All That Bull**** You Think You Know About Me



In one of the chapters he describes losing around $1.6 million in 5 hours playing a $5,000 slot at Wynn Las Vegas.

http://sports.espn.go.com/espnmag/story?id=3667037 - Circa half way down the page.

It would be interesting to know exactly how many $5k slots there are in Las Vegas, I suspect there may only be a handful. The NGCB monthly Gaming Revenue Report Index after listing $100 slots then mentions simply "other denominations".

From this YouTube video there's at least one at the Aria.
