So let me get this straight.

The advertised jackpot amount was the $1,627.82 that they were given and they feel they should be paid $11,000,000 because of a machine malfunction?



A quote from the manager of the casino.

Quote

That machine doesn't pay out $11,000," he said. "Certainly not $11 million.



Unreal. What?

There is an investigation by the gaming board? Why does there even need to be an investigation?

This is what I would have done.

Take a picture of the screen with my cell phone. Go to management as ask to be paid $11,000,000 even though I don't deserve the jackpot and have close to zero percent chance of being paid. Why not ask? All they can say is no. After they say no, walk away and have a good story to tell.

    yes sad but true on the amount  1,627.82 is max pay out on a machine , look at the max payouts before you play you should  known how to count . if it was  a .25 per line or bet .75 max bet, or if it was 1.00 max bet 3.00 for every line. it took in 1,700.00 to jackpot the machine i known that for a fact.

    The total they won was 1,700.00 the amount that don't show is what they where playing on and get this one they have to pay taxes on 1,700.00 not 1,627.82 they should have pulled there money out ouchie.

          Silly thinking here but has it ever dawned on folks that a HANDPAY must transpire if its above a certain amount so the casino guy made a valid statement the MACHINE will not PAYOUT the amount in question. A human attendent from the casino can! Its all in the way the sentence is presented and how someone interprets it.

          Progressive machines can have rollover jackpots so not understanding some folks assuming there is a cap simply based on the coin value.....

          I find it interesting that a small sentence taken out of full context can be seen as a rock solid statement. In the legal realm its open to much further inquiry.

            Figures don't lie.......but people figure!    Beaudad....If the casino's get off on a machine malfunction.....then that's a shame!.....I hope the machine is pulled......so it doesn't happen again!....I would think that Insurance should cover it......and PAY those people their MONEY !!!!

                  It's not the casino's fault the machine malfuntioned either. They don't manufacture the machines.

                  The McMahons should be publicly flogged in front of the casino for trying to get away with this ridiculousness.

                  What if the machine said they won 963 Trillion dollars? Would they still feel entitled to it? Probably.

                  Flog em. Do it now.
