All bets off as casino refuses to pay jackpot
Two men from Manitoba have hired a lawyer and are threatening legal action after a Winnipeg casino refused to pay out more than $209,000 in slot-machine winnings.
The men were playing a computerized version of Keno last week when they matched all five numbers on the screen.
The machine said the win was worth a jackpot of $209,716.40. The casino said it was a software error.
So even if you win at a Casino you still may never get your money because it was a software error. They have all that money to make sure their machines are in working order and this crap happends.
When all the industries are gone and all that is left is government jobs and someone wants to win a little extra money at the casino, the thugs will not allow you to take home winning even if their machines say that you hit the jackpot.
