Court rules grandmother, 90, will receive $1.85 instead of $41M jackpot

April 26, 2015, 10:32 am ET

As a 90-year-old grandmother, Pauline McKee tries to maintain a sweet disposition.

When she played a penny slot machine that told her she had won more than $41 million, the Antioch woman remained pretty calm. "That was nice," she said, recalling her reaction. "Very nice."

And when she learned on Friday that the Iowa Supreme Court ruled the casino does not have to pay her the big bucks, McKee took it stoically.

Instead, she won a mere $1.85 on the bet.

"I had my doubts from the start, because that's a lot of money for a penny machine," she said. "I was hoping to help my children out financially, but it wasn't meant to be."
