A grandmother and her daughter were playing slots back in 2011 and to their shock they thought they had hit the jackpot when the screen read....."The reels have rolled your way! Bonus Award - $41797550.16.".......
Unfortunately this was a computer glitch and she had only won a couple of dollars.I don't know why this went to court as it appears that it could be seen on the screen that the reels had only hit a tiny win and not the jackpot.
Not all bad news as she did get comped free hotel rooms for the family and ........$10. Smile

Why bother bringing such case into justice either way.
We have seen cases won by the casino's, where the players had rightfully won a prize.
What were the chances of winning this one? She should have thanked them for the free room and thats it Smile

Wow nice story i do not know where you find those , they are gems and fun to read, sad for her but who would not, in your case or for everybody else you see you have won then only to be denied your winnings as it was really a computer glitch, it might have been they won and they found a way not to give it the money, anyway either way sad for her as i think she has not gotten the money anyway peace out and post more of those !

Hey av,sorry you thought my two stories were depressing.....I like to think they make us think that when we are mad at having aces beaten by KQ there are always players who have truly been having a bad day. Smile
I will try and find some good gambling news but when ever there are winners there is always a loser somewhere. Smile

I dont know what kind of lawyer took this case to court if the reels were showing just alittle prize. I could be very depressing seing when the machine tell you that you won a large sum of money and its just a computer mistake that you can see very easely. But the lawyer that toook the case kept these peoples thinking that they could collect the big amount should be banned of beeing a lawyer. Big Smile Big Smile
