If you were Chuck and Tisha Barry, your screen said you won $31,000. If you were Louise Chavez, it was $43 million. For Behar Merlaku, the number was an absurd $57 million. That's freaking lottery money!
Next step: sashay on over to the money counter to collect the dollars that you'll be rolling naked in for the next few decades.
You. You and 80 whole dollars.
The Heartbreaking Truth
Not so fast, Scrooge McRockefeller. All the flashing lights in the world don't add up to a payoff if the casino in charge claims the machine experienced a malfunction or a software glitch. After all, slot machines these days are just computers, and computers screw up all the time.
Just ask Chuck and Tisha Barry. When they went to collect their $31,000, the casino scoffed and said it was all one big, hilarious mistake. The Barrys walked away with nothing but the 80 cents they put into the machine and a deep regret for screaming "IN YOUR FACE, PEASANTS!" to all the other casino patrons.
"You can bet we'll be taking our 80 cents to a competing casino."
