A bride-to-be has shared the moment her fiancé got down on one knee in the middle of a slot machine to propose.
Taryn Edgar was blindfolded while sitting at a poker machine believed to be in the Dural Country Club in Sydney’s northwest when her boyfriend Ethan Raymen suddenly pulled out a ring.
Mr Raymen also treated his future wife to a long island iced tea and $40 preloaded into the slot machine, as the couple shared a kiss and hug after Mrs. Edgar said yes.

The fiancé wrote that she was ecstatic that her partner had proposed to her, especially in her “happy place”, and captioned the video “my dreams came true” and “I am now engaged to my best friend and soul mate.”
The video has been viewed more than 63,000 times on TikTok and while the pair may have hit the jackpot, many went unsold at the proposal’s location.
‘Congratulations! But seriously on the slots of all places!’ one wrote.
“What a houso (someone coming from a housing commission) proposal,” said one blunt commentator, accompanied by another who said, “You could certainly have come up with a better place than this, come on man.”

“Honeymoon in the smoking lounge,” another joked.
Ms Edgar said she loved that her partner asked the question at the slots and added ‘it’s just the way I wanted it’.
Many others supported her and congratulated her on the news.
“I want to be introduced the same way,” someone said.
“Man, she couldn’t have said yes faster, wherever it is, happy for you!!” wrote one happy fan.
“Love this size, something special, different and romantic,” said another.
“However, this is unironically very sweet. I wish you both the best, grats!!!’ said one benevolent viewer.
