Trying to be fair to both sides, it's a tough call.....28 million ?? on a penny,nickle,dime,quarter or dollar doesn't seem reasonable....If you were taking about maybe a $50-$100 slot machine ?? Possible......

I believe there have been similar stories like this in the past......Perhaps there should be a maximum posted jackpot on each machine(if there isn't one already)

I truly hope the casino is forced to cough up a sizable chunk of change...maybe $280 K ??? and no steak dinner crap either No No

Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

    I like how their argument is "who expects to win $28Million off of a $0.50 wager"

    Ummm, alot of people do actually. We put down a single dollar on the Mega and expect half a billion in return.

      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.

      Same thing happened to me when the machine showed 3300, but according to the pay table, I won $500. I was told "3300" is an error code and they paid me $500. I guess it's possible some of these smaller casinos have a bank of penny slot machines connect to several casinos, but the rolling jackpot usually scrolls somewhere on the machine. The thing that is clear are the symbols on the reels to win the jackpot and this s.

      "They say it appeared on Jennifer Carmin's customer account screen; as a "current balance" of promotional credits; but that it that it was not an actual cash jackpot with bells and whistles.

      Anyone who uses rewards cards notices different numbers on that screen which has nothing to do with the machine play functions. Most machines show the number of credits and how much is won during the spin. Had Carmin said she played the machine because she thought it had a $28 million jackpot and can show where she saw it on the machine, she might actually have a case.

      "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.

      I wonder how many lottery scams she answered. "Her email address won $5 million in the Nigerian Lottery".

        Not $28 million mistakes, but mistakes are made everyday in casinos. Dealers over pay and under play players and the floor person usually straightens it out. There are players who complain they are not being paid correctly when they are. There is always arguments with the one roll prop bets in Craps. The gaming commissions have their rules and regs,  the casinos have procedures, and a steak dinner is probably appropriate under the circumstances in this story.

              I feel like I've heard this story a few times.

              My question is always what the highest jackpot amount on the machine says? It's probably not $28 million, so she isn't deserved that. If they can't prove she tampered with anything, then they should pay out the largest payout listed on the machine.

                  The problem with them paying out is she NEVER put in any money or played the machine!!  That is why she didn't win!!  All she did was insert her player card and it read an erronous number on the display.  When the card was removed and put back in it was zeros.  But she doesn't deserve any payout since she never even played the machine.

                    Pay the Lady.............

                    Hit With Stick I DISAGREE 100 PERCENT!!!

                    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.

                    This is classic entitlement attitude. Let us see here: the casinos are in the business to take people's money. No one forces anyone to walk into a casino and spend a single red cent. The wager per game is clearly stated, and you have the option to play or not to play. Give me a break lady! People like her need to be sent to an outback bush village where you have to walk miles just to go fetch buckets of water for drinking, cooking and bathing. That does of reality would cure that entitlement attitude.

                    If the top prize for a given game is nowhere in the neighborhood of the glitch readout, how on Earth does anyone think the casino should pay her out something when she never was entitled to anything? It would be one thing if the top potential prize was, say $50 million. But if the top prize for a penny slot game is only, say $2,500.00, then only an entitled idiot would think he or she is entitled to win an erroneous $28 million prize. The rules are strict. If the prize is advertised at a certain level and a person wins, then that person has a valid claim to that prize (e.g. the casino advertises one can win a Bentley plus $2 million in cash). But if the advertised top potential prize for a game is only $5,000.00 and a glitch occurs that flashes a higher amount, that person is not entitled to that prize.

                    The lady should have taken the steak dinner and paid it forward to someone who does love steak. I do not play slots, but I thought one only won if the machine goes bonkers making noises after getting matching pairs or triplets (I don't frequent casinos much and only check out the table games, so I can only talk about what I see on TV shows like CSI: Las Vegas when it comes to slot machines).

                    Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                    The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                      The current balance displayed was not related to a machine payout or machine jackpot. Part of the balance that displays when you check your card balance (like she did) are for promotional SLOT credits and can not be redeemed for cash. She thought she had won a "promotional jackpot" because this is where the casino promotional credits are displayed and show up. Not sure why she thought that was a cash winning, but either way, these promotions are for slot credits only. 
                      Casinos are responsible for their machines regardless and how they handled this was really bad on their behalf. Did they forget the odds are in their favor and a reasonable casino credit would have probably made this all better. They still would have ended up with the money back in their pockets at the end of the day given her credits would only be good for slots...and slots are a money pit.

                            She deserved a coke and a smile and maybe a Happy Meal. This is a no brainer case. She is owed NOTHING!!

                            If that slot machine didn't advertise a $28 million dollar jackpot, then she is not owed one point blank. No slot machine would pay that kind of money. She's trying to milk this fake claim to try and get a few dollars out of it or she is that delussional in really thinking she's owed that.

                            Following the trends and patterns means following the money!Banana

                              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.

                              "She didn't even WIN the jackpot on the slot machine."

                              I Agree! and it probably happens many times in scratch-off games. The casino was very generous in offering a steak dinner.

                              "No reason to even think that you had won anything on the slot machine."

                              Who would have thought putting a hot cup of McDonald's coffee between their legs would result in a multi-million jackpot?
