Candy Spelling Wins $90K at Slot Machine

Jason Kempin/Getty Images(LAS VEGAS) -- Don’t feel too bad for Candy Spelling, who earlier this year sold her Los Angeles mansion for $65 million less than her asking price. The widow of TV mogul Aaron Spelling and mother of Tori Spelling recently won $90,000 while playing the slot machines in Las Vegas.

TMZ reported that Spelling and her girlfriends were playing the high limit slots, with machines that cost from $100 to $1000 a spin, at the Bellagio Hotel in Vegas two weeks ago when Spelling hit it big.

But that’s not even her biggest haul from the slots. According to TMZ, Spelling pulled in $200,000 in 2007. A year later, she won $180,000.

In July, Spelling sold her 56,000 square-foot house built by her late husband to 22-year-old British heiress Petra Ecclestone for $85 million. The house was priced at $150 million when Spelling put it on the market two years ago.

Candy Spelling Sells Los Angeles Mansion

Theo Wargo/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Candy Spelling is 85 million dollars richer after selling her 56,500 square-foot Los Angeles mansion. TMZ reports 22-year-old fashion designer Petra Ecclestone has taken the mansion off Candy’s hands. Petra is the daughter of billionaire and Formula One President and CEO Bernie Ecclestone.

Even though $85 million is a chunk of change anyone would love to have, the sale price is significantly less than Spelling’s original asking price of $150 million. When Spelling put the house on the market back in 2009, it was the most expensive home for sale in the United States.
