She didn't even WIN the jackpot on the slot machine.  It was the plastic player card that glitched.  The machine didn't go off no bells or whistles.  No ring a ding ding.  No matching fruit symbols. It was just her plastic (think hotel key) card.  When they removed her card and reinserted it there were only 00/00.  No reason to even think that you had won anything on the slot machine.

    I would never spend my money on Casinos. I do not trust Casinos.

    for someone who hates lotteries and casinos and gambling in general, you expend a lot of effort to tell everyone that nearly every day.

      I wonder if she'd also be stupid enough to think it would be okay to cash a tax refund check for $28 million.

        Something similar happened more than once at Winstar in OK several years ago. Don't remember the details except there was a big report on the news. The casino said it was a glitch.

          They should pay her the top Jackpot amount that the machine she was playing would pay for a 50 cent bet.

          I Agree!

              noise-gate,

              Well I wan't pit. I was dealer then box/floor but thanks.

              As for the OP, the IGB (Indiana Gaming Board) will go with this:

              "I think after the emotion subsides, most reasonable people would say 'Yeah, that doesn't make sense. I was wagering 50 cents and it said $28 million and there was nothing on the sign that said i had an opportunity to win that.' Clearly it was an error," said Aronovitz.

              Carmin says she didn't see any disclaimer, only the $28.8 million.

              "I'm thinking I'm gonna pay off my mom's house. I'll pay off my best friend's house. I'll set something aside for my son. You have all of these all of a sudden dreams," said Carmin.

              Goudie asks: "Do you think you actually deserve the 28 million?"

              "They're always taking my money and I don't say: 'Umm is that computer wrong or did you overcharge me?' So I mean, yes, to answer your question," said Carmin.

              _____________________________________

              Surely a $28 million jackpot would be posted all over the place. "Conde play our alots! Win $28 Million!"

              _____________________________________

              When you work in casinos you have to get a license. In Vegas it's called a Sherrif's card, other states call them badges, but you have to go through state gaming control, which is usually state troopers, at least for getting the badges. In Illinois the Illinois Gaming Board guys knews they had a good gig and were really courteous when they took your photo and fingerprinted you, Missouri, too.

              The Indiana guys, on the other hand, treatEd you like they'd just arrested you. "SIT DOWN! LOOK AT THE CAMERA FOR YOUR PHOTO. NOW I'VE GOT TO GET YOUR PRINTS, COME OVER HERE."

              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.

                  Thanks noise-gate. Saylorgirl pretty well described the scenario in her post.

                  Also let me add if there was such a jackpot that machine would have been under surveillance from the eye in the sky and people on the floor.

                  The Tropicana in Vegs had a slot that had a $2M jackpot. Every time it jammed and they had to call a slot mechanic there was the mechanic and two security people. One of the mechanics was an absolute nervous wreck when he worked on that one slot.

                  For the people in this thread saying the woman should get paid, what is it she should get paid for?

                    Well, I've never played slots, don't think I've even been inside a casino, I'm guessing expecting a large payout on slot machines seem ridiculous to people who have played it. Not seeing how it's any more ridiculous than expecting $656,000,000 from a $1 investment. Seems to me that if the payout wasn't ridiculous compared to what gets put in, very few would play. How many would keep playing if the ticket price was $100? 

                    The more ridiculous payout is what would help lure customers in to one casino over another I would think. An outrageous amount doesn't seem weird to me at all. I'd simply figure they'd have it so the odds were astronomical.

                      CT, I don't think it's about herself deserving anything. It's about the casino showing good faith. It raises people's suspicions when a claim of a computer glitch is given as a reason to avoid making a payment in a gambling establishment. There is already a sense that these places aren't trustworthy. It creates negative media attention they'll have to overcome; plus now they're going to spend how much on lawyers to prove they don't deserve to pay anything.

                      Why not take that money and give it to her as a show of good faith. Not the $28 million, but the money they're going to shell out to quash this thing anyway. Money is going to be coming out of their pockets no matter what, why not give it to her instead of the lawyers?

                        What should she get paid for? I say give her 28,000 and a weekend in the top suite with comps for food and a show, its just to keep the players happy and not bad mouthing you casino. Since the shows food and rooms are paid for by the losers the only thing they'd be losing is the 28 grand, but that's a drop in the bucket to what they win. If I was the Casino owner I'd probably have those machines checked and doulbe checked to make sure that NEVER happened again and put that disclaimer on the back of their cards they stick in the machines

                            That's just it. When you win big money, and they don't want to pay, they call it computer glitch. When you lose big money due to a computer glitch, nobody bothers to inform you about it and refund your money. JUST PAY THE LADY.......at least $2.8M. She deserves at least that much. This is America.US Flag

                            That will happen to me when i hit a jackpot. Sorry stupid, it was a glitch and your still a loser. Here's a few Chimichangos for your pain and suffering.
