Crime Woman wins over $2 million at Casino. Casino refuses to pay claiming machine malfunctioned.

Hate to be THAT guy but 1.28 is not OVER 2 million, it's UNDER 2 million.

Anyway, of course she's 72, why is it always people who have one foot in the grave who end up winning? Every time I'm in a rush trying to make a quick stop at a gas station or convenience store I end up waiting behind some old fart checking his lottery tickets for 5 minutes. I'm always thinking "so what if you win old man, you can't fuck anymore so blowing it on hookers is pointless, and if you're splurging on that many lottery tickets you probably have more money than you need just to live, and you're probably checking out within a few years anyway"
You didn’t even finish the first sentence
 
Sounds like it's time to bust some skulls

WIll probablty depend rather on the specific laws governming casinos and machines whether displaying a win means you have to honour it or fi not it will probably come down to looking at exactly what happened.

I believe slot machines have to have a certain level of payout legally? so you basically have a random probability generator which has to pay out a certain amount. This would be a case of proving whether that probability generator somehow "went wrong" giving her a win outside of the normal probability rather than "went wrong" or deliberately cancelled what was a legit win, if it was the latter then not only would she likely be entitledd to the money but the casion or the company behind the machines would likely be in big trouble for breaking gaming laws, running slot machines which actually pay out much lower than they should.

The claim for emotional distress I'd guess is more separate and probably easier to proove, the Casino or the machine owners have a legal duty not to tell people they've won large amounts of money and then cancel the win since this predictable is going to have a very negative effect on people.
 
i believe this happened in my city once too. someone won a jackpot and then they came over and spun it again and it won the jackpot again. they tried to write it off as a glitch in the machine and not pay her but i believe she sued. i don't remember what ever became of it.

it might have been a glitch in the machine, or it might have won back to back jackpots. who knows?

either way, hopefully she lawyers up and does not accept any monetary compensation or accomodation that the casino offers, and they go straight to court to settle this matter.

I mean, I'm sure these old people have loved ones in their lives they'd like to share the money with. Hell if I hit it big after paying off my house I'd do the same for my siblings.

You should be that guy who can read, it's a much better look

Hey come on, he obviously did that as a divine act because he was chosen by God to have the only hotels in Vegas and Atlantic City that dont have Casinos. Beacons of virtue where mostly Saudis and Russians pay for rooms!

He is clearly a genius, a very stable one. Let's hand this man the entire US economy for a 2nd time!

It happens, but the Casinos should be on the hook for some kind of payout when it does.
 
- 72 year old lady wins around $1.28 million, with a multiplier that makes it double; at the slot machines in an Atlantic City Casino
- Machine said she won. and the blue light came on.
- After she called for Casino employees to come, they machine then popped up a message saying she didn't win.
- Casino refuses to pay, claiming machine malfunctioned
- Casino also told her to leave the Casino after she told them she won.

- Casino claims they are not responsible because a 3rd party owns the machines, so they have nothing to do with payment.

What a load of RIPoff bullshit from the Casino. Yeah I know what you are all saying that Casinos by nature rip you off, but this is a different kind of rip off.

Some of the commenters rightly recognize that the Casino keeps the money from machines that allegedly malfunction. YouTube lawyer rightly points out the Casino never approaches players and tells them the machine malfunctioned and gives them their money back.

People should start a social media viral movement to shame the casino and boycott it until they pay the lady her winnings.

Reminds me of this -

"
John Kane, who'd lost a fortune to Video King machines, discovered a subtle bug that let him win big — so the casinos put him in handcuffs.

He brought in an accomplice, another problem gambler named Andre Nestor, but the two fell out over the split. Eventually, the casinos figured out that they were winning too big for chance to account for, and had them arrested on suspicion of theft. Fed prosecutors tried everything to get them to plead guilty — even charging them with an absurd count under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act — but finally had to let them go.

It turned out the Game King's endless versatility was also its fatal flaw. In addition to different game variants, the machine lets you choose the base level of your wagers: At the low-limit Fremont machines, you could select six different denomination levels, from 1 cent to 50 cents a credit.
The key to the glitch was that under just the right circumstances, you could switch denomination levels retroactively. That meant you could play at 1 cent per credit for hours, losing pocket change, until you finally got a good hand—like four aces or a royal flush. Then you could change to 50 cents a credit and fool the machine into re-awarding your payout at the new, higher denomination.
Performing that trick consistently wasn't easy—it involved a complicated misdirection that left the Game King's internal variables in a state of confusion. But after seven hours rooted to their seats, Kane and Nestor boiled it down to a step-by-step recipe that would work every time.
 
They'll settle. No casino would want to put this in front of a jury, and they sure as hell wouldn't want any kind of a legal precedent around this kind of thing.
 
Casinos are as corrupt as it gets. Not surprised at all here.
 
Atlantic City is like 90% retirement home residents spending their social security check at slot machines.

If you start to look at US businesses as wealth-transfer schemes it makes a lot of dots connect. In this light Casino corporations and Prosperity Preachers share a common goal, they'll go to any lengths to get your dying Grandmother's last $100, because they genuinely feel that every Grandmother's last $100 is better spent upgrading their private jet than it is remaining with them until they die.

My Grandmother loved Casino environments, and I never understood why, what was the allure? She wasnt a bored wealthy person, former celebrity, or whatever. She just liked the vibe of the environment, and bought j to the scam of selling hope.
