Workers in the recently shuttered Nevada Landing casino in Jean found loose change totaling nearly $10,000, or 675 pounds, while dismantling the property's roughly 800 slot machines, a manager said.

"There is money that has been soaking in Long Island iced teas for 18 years," said Chris McBeth, who oversaw technicians as they removed video poker machines from the casino's bar and broke down rows and rows of slots.

As they completed work Friday, workers had counted $9,454.38.

Much of the money was spilled when slot technicians refilled machines by dumping in coins by the bucketful.
