So when I lose I'll just say that the machine was faulty and get my money back.  Wink  Yeah, that'll work.

I don't have a problem with the casino claiming malfunction.

 

I haven't read anywhere what the advertised jackpot prize for the machine was.

 

My problem is exactly what iGlenn says.  What protects players whene there is a malfunction that shows the player loses a money on a spin when the correct result was a large winning amount?

    If the machine showed a payout of 43 million euros, and that's an exorbitant amount of money for anyone to win playing a slot machine, then why does the machine have the capacity to show a payout of 43 million euros?  What? .. No Nod

        "WRONG" I have not seen not one slot machine at anytime in any casino not say right on it that, any and all malfunctions voids any payouts! And that also goes for any video poker machines as well.

        Next time your in a casino go and read the front of the machine where the coin goes in or where the bill slot is and you'll find it around there about any malfunctions voiding any payouts!

        I Agree!

        I was on a 50 cent machine and hit something, the call lights came on and 3300 was blinking in a window below the reels. At first I though I won $3300 but on the payoff schedule what I hit was for $300. When the attendant came they said the reason machine malfunctioned (3300 was the error code) was because it was suppose to be a $600 win and the reels stopped at the wrong place. The attendant paid me $600 plus the credits I had in the machine and placed a "do not play" sign on the machine. We don't usually hear the stories about slot machine malfunctions being in favor of the players, but it does happen.

        If this machine didn't have a jackpot payoff of $43 million, it's a no-brainer, but it was a multi-casino jackpot game like Mega Bucks it's possible the annuity jackpot could get that high. The gaming commission enforces the casino rules and this reminds of the Florida player that scratched the "1" off the number "13" and demanded he be paid $500,000 even though "thirteen" was clearly printed underneath the "1".

          Pay the man his money!!!! Simple boycott that casino until they fork over the cash.

          I Agree!

          Sully is correct can't tell you how often incidents like this have occured in Las Vegas & Atlantic City - Megabucks slots hit for $39.7M at Excaliber, LV.

          In another story a Harrah's managed Tribal Casino a player hit for a jackpot and the techies said that they neede to confirm by cheeking inards of the machine which would requires some time, when the players returned they announced that it was a malfunction & pointed to the sign & announced that the Tribal management was thus not going to payoff.. The player was a hispanic woman who felt cheated as those tech angels could have changed the chip easily enough- anyway the story was going to go vira as it was building up to, as Sully recommnds, a boycot of all Harrah's Casino . Didn't have to go to court as the lady got paid with apologies.

          Yes Virginia, Casinos are known to cheat (check with a State gaming board for evidence) & sometimes the good gals & guyz win.

            No Pity!a  lot of casino have signs posted on the walls telling you before hand they are not obligated to pay you if is due to a machine malfunotion you play at your own  risk  , if the casino has even one sign on wall or machine saying this this person lose.  95% of machine have this statement on them . the machines have the warning on them. the best this person can hope for comp; lunch, dinner, or maybe extra comp;points extra comp;play money', a couple of free or reducted rate stays at their hotel and we are sorry sir for any inconveniencce it cause you but a error has been made etc........  politely. this is the bottom line period!!!

            Comped lunch or dinner? Reduced rate hotel room?

                      Re: Tribal casinos

                      When casinos started opening beyond Nevada and Atlantic City, Indian casinos started recruiting in Nevada.

                      There would be ads in the classifieds worded like this:

                      Casino opening soon in _ _ _ _ _.

                      Experienced casino personnel wanted.

                      WE ARE A NATIVE AMERICAN PREFERENCE EMPLOYER.

                      Try putting something other than Native American in such an ad and see how far you get.

                      When "palefaces" got hired they'd be working there for a few months and then see a notice in the break room.

                      AS OF _ _ _ _ _ 75% OF THE STAFF WILL BE NATIVE AMERICANS. (They hired experienced people to get them up and running and trained, and then let the palefaces go).

                      Also, no palefaces got paydays or two or three days after payday off because when the some of the Natives got their paychecks and some firewater they'd be gone for two or three days.

                      This is in reference to smaller tribal casinos off the beaten path, on actual reservations, not places like Foxwoods who at first hired anyone who called themself a Pequot.

                      When Foxwoods first opened Donald Trump went there to check it out and looking around at the employees he said, "They don't look like Indians to me."

                      Green laugh

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      Lep

                      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
