If you've been anywhere in West Alabama the past few weeks, you've likely heard these words, "You know the 7's fell!"

But what exactly does this mean?

According to a self-proclaimed gambler, "7's falling" are indicative of a community prize being awarded. It is said to be similar to a lottery, except it has many winners.

The "bank" accumulates, and at random times, the computer awards the amount on the screen among all of the players who are active at that particular time. The award is equally divided.

Recently, the 7's fell and every active player is said to have been awarded over $1,900.
