Wow – A steak dinner instead of £33m Jackpot!
A woman has reportedly taken legal action against a casino that claimed a fruit machine displaying a £33.65 jackpot was faulty – offering her a steak dinner instead.
The woman took a selfie with the Fruit machine telling her it was “printing cash tickets of $42,949,672.76 as she celebrated her almighty jackpot!!
But, a worker at the Resorts World Casino in New York City, was quick to tell her that she had not won and it was claimed the casino escorted her from the premises.
The machine displayed a disclaimer, saying – “Malfunctions void all pays and plays”.
The lawyer representing the woman filed a lawsuit, labelling the claims ‘ridiculous’ and questioned if the casino was liable for poor maintenance.
They were seeking the jackpot total in damages.
The lawyer continued – “You can’t claim a machine is broken because you want it to be broken. Does that mean it wasn’t inspected? Does it mean it wasn’t maintained? “If this is the case, does that mean the people that played there before have zero chance of winning?”
It was reported the cash jackpot would have been the largest ever won on a gaming machine in the USA.
The incident took place last year and the casino claimed at the time staff and the New York State Gaming Commission had later found the machine had malfunctioned!!!
While in the UK we do not have million pound jackpot machines, it is very important to not only have the latest fruit machines in your pub or club but to ensure they are regularly serviced and maintained. We are coming across many machines in midlands pubs and clubs that are not new £1 ready, have many bulbs not working so the customers can not see the feature that is lit up and this is only looking from the outside.
At Comrie we do regular maintenance on all our gaming and amusement machines to try and avoid the machine going faulty on a player. As this can cause a loss of income and a frustrated customer especially if this happens on a busy Friday or Saturday night. If you are looking for the latest fruit machines that are maintained regularly give Comrie a call today on 02476 249070
