A woman whose slot machine announced that she won about 43 million was told to return the following day. When she showed up they offered her a steak dinner and $2.25. They said the machine malfunctioned and the penny slot she was on could only payout $6500.
You know what? If it was a malfunction, give her the $6500. $2,25 and a steak dinner? Why would you even offer that? It’s insulting.
I was with the casino until the steak dinner part. That’s just… ridiculous.
Katrina Bookman in August posed for a selfie at New York’s Resorts World Casino in front of the “Sphinx Slot Machine,” its screen promising her a grand prize of $42,949,672.76. When she attempted to collect her cash, however, casino employees told her she hadn’t actually won and offered her a complimentary steak dinner and $2.25 — the prize they claim her slot machine actually should have delivered.
“You can’t claim a machine is broken because you want it to be broken. Does that mean it wasn’t inspected? Does it mean it wasn’t maintained?” Ripka told CNN. “And if so, does that mean that people that played there before (Bookman) had zero chance of winning?”
