Slot Machine Says ‘Big Win,’ Casino Says ‘No’
A win is a win, right? An Austrian man, Behar Merlaku, is going to court because the Bregenz Casino refuses to pay out what he considers a win. The jackpot in question is 43 million euros, or roughly $62 million in US currency.
Why the dispute?
The slot machine Merladu was playing showed the win - and the casino isn't disputing that. But, casino officials say, a malfunctioning computer chip was responsible for the faulty display.
I'd be taking the casino to court too!
Fox News reports that Merladu is currently banned from the casino, awaiting the outcome of the case.
