Not what Jesus would say!

 

If you claim to love Jesus so much, you sure in his name don't act like it.

 

Matthew 5:39

"39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also."

 

You might want to dust off that Bible and learn about the REAL Jesus.

    Everybody is saying that the "malfunction" was the machine saying he won the jackpot when he didn't have five of a kind.

    How about if the "malfunction" was the machine not showing the five of a kind like it was supposed to?

    Ridge, you have a very valid point, but if that video does show 4 symbols, instead of 5, in my opinion, he doesn't stand a chance. He can't prove it was a malfunction, just because the alarm sound, and only 4 symbols showed, but you can take it to the bank, the casino's lawyers will try and prove a software glitch.

      Pay the man!

       

      I have NEVER been to any slot machine where there is a disclaimer BEFORE you put in a $1.00 that it is not responsible for "Software Glitches"

      "Despite only getting four of the slot machine's five required matches, Mr. Merlaku was told he had won the massive jackpot — complete with a winning bell and flashing screen."

      All slot machines in legal casinos have "void if malfunction" signs and this one was obvious. If you matched 4 out of 5 on MM or PB and a clerk said you won the jackpot, would you expect to be paid?

        If that happened to me I would call a lawyer right there and have the machine taken off line and

        tagged.  The malfunction could be determined by testing.  If the machine test showed the machine

        should have showed a match-5 then he might have a case for the 2 million.

        they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else
