6/11/2007 8:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Candy Spelling Candy Spelling rocked Vegas Friday, June 1, by winning hundreds of thousands of dollars at the slot machines.

Vegas spies tell TMZ that Spelling, whose legendary fortune is reportedly in the $600 million range, was playing the $100 slots at the Bellagio Hotel when she hit it big by winning the $100,000 jackpot! But that wasn't the end of it! Spelling kept winning -- $36,000 here, $32,000 there. She was up $325,000!!!

Candy didn't leave well enough alone. She began losing ground and at 4:30 AM Saturday, when she called it quits. Her winnings -- $200,000!!!

But wait -- there's more! On Sunday, Candy held a raffle for her Charity, L.A.'s Best (an afterschool program). The grand prize was a Prius. Candy bought tickets for everyone on her staff and kept one for herself. She won! She told TMZ, "I'm gonna drive it!"

The casino probably rigged the games, so Candy would win. They like keeping the rich happy.

Isn't it illegal to win the prize, when the prize is from your organization? Whenever, there are raffles or games of chance there's always those disclaimers that you can't play if you work for the organization. What gives?

Where's the justice? You don't run a charity give-away and then win the item! Stinks of a word "RIGGED"! The machines had to be rigged at the casinos, just because she probably plays there a lot and they want her to keep coming back to drop in the dough later. NO ONE is THAT lucky! I'd be calling for an investigator, and the stupid woman needs to give the car to a REAL person who got suckered into buying a ticket. I'd be mad as hell if I bought a ticket and found out the people putting it on won the prize. How low can you go? Only Parasite Hilton knows the answer to that...........

It's NOT a choice you FOOLS    

She actually kept this money and prizes instead of donating it to charity? I guess it just proves that you can still be a classless wench even with a 300 mill bankroll.

Aha, no wonder why no matter how much money I put in these slot machines at Bellagio, MGM Luxor, I never win. That's the secret, you have to rigged the game.
I wonder if the owners of these casinos can sleep well at night. While you are making yourself rich, the poor becomes poorer. I've been with these casino's many times the most I've won was 100 pennies. Thanks for letting us know Ms Spelling, at least now you have open my eyes not to give away the money I've worked hard for years.
You cannot take your riches to heaven anyway, someone else will get it and not you or your loveones.

And being the loser that she is, if she donated her winnings from Vegas, she'd donate them to the Free Paris Hilton Fund.

Or maybe...just maybe...she'll give her winnings to a university for Candy Spelling "Dear Celebrity" advice scholarships.

#10, she won the money in a slot machine, why should she not keep it? If you won, would you give it away? You don't know how much money she gives to charity each year. I don't get why you all think just because you are rich you should give all your money away. How stupid! Rich people are entitled to keep their money, just like you keep your money. Like if you won a million dollars tomorrow you would not keep any for yourself and give it all to charity. Right..Get Real! And keep in mind she has to pay half of that in taxes anyway.

Btw, what she won in Vegas, is not a problem...many many people win....rich and poor, no problem! But, c'mon, an organization for kids that has a raffle...to make it that the staff and the Board can win....that is ridiculous...who drew the number???? Candy, herself??? Amazing!!! It was in the rules that they could win, but how very greedy and tacky to put it in the rules!!! Oh well, another example of the lack of taste and class in Hollywood!

Oh, please #15 - pay half of her winnings in taxes???? Hello, it's a non profit or profit, rich people find a way not to pay taxes. they will open an IRA account next year, she already claims charity and she will claim the same amount of what she has won so it will even out, and a lot of tactics to get away with it. IRS doesn't even take time to audit rich people, they only take time to audit poor people whose trying very hard to make money. So, please, she's not going to pay taxes, she will find a way, etc. Or she will say she lost $300,000 before she won that $300,000. She will withdraw from her account, pay some but kept some to show to IRS that she really withdrew cash and lost that amount. Pleasee, give me a break.......
