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