Talking Stick Resort and Casino

He earns $50 000 but only collects $4,000

A player receives three red double levels at a slot machine, which should be a $50,000 Jackpot win according to the paytable.

Win in a casino and not get to collect: this is probably the worst nightmare of all players! Unfortunately, it sometimes happens, as we reported some time ago in our article on Katrina Bookman. Today, we are reporting on a similar story.

At the Scottsdale Talking Stick Resort and Casino

Ryan Sherry, 47, visited Scottsdale Talking Stick Resort and Casino in Arizona last April to enjoy himself. As he played, the slot machine's screen suddenly flashed three red double levels, which, according to the paytable, should be worth $50,000.

A broken light bulb

The Scottsdale Talking Stick Resort and Casino manager then claimed it was a broken light bulb and only paid him $4,000.

However, when the player tried to redeem his winnings, the slot machine payout turned out to be only $4,000. He asked the manager of the casino for help, but was told that a defective light bulb in the slot machine was the reason why the prize amount was so misleading. As a result, It was likely that the wrong colour was displayed. Of course, Ryan Sherry did not intend to let it go and will bring the case to federal court.

This is a rather sad story that is unlikely to happen in a reliable and reputable online casino such as SlotsMillion, PlayFrank or Video Slots.
