Neil Patrick Harris was threatened with a $10,000 fine after his one-year-old daughter was caught playing a slot machine during a recent family trip to Las Vegas.

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka
Punk'd has a good track record of successfully tricking celebrities, but Neil Patrick Harris apparently caught on to a recent attempt by the revived MTV show.

It's not the first time a prank has failed. Wrestler...
