CNN Money— A slot machine told her she hit a massive jackpot, but the casino claimed it was a machine error and offered her a meal on the house. Now, she’s taking this to court.
Katrina Bookman captured national attention last year when she played a “Sphinx Slot Machine” at Resorts World Casino in Queens, New York, and it appeared as though she’d won $43 million — which would have been the largest jackpot ever won on the slots in U.S. history. She excitedly snapped a selfie with the screen, believing her life was forever changed.
But when Bookman came to collect her prize, a casino worker told her she hadn’t actually won anything and offered her nothing but a complimentary steak dinner and $2.25.
I would’ve burnt that whole fucking place down. Could you imagine? It’s hard enough to not lose everything you own in these places and they pull this shit. I hope the dickhead who brought over the dinner voucher had armed security guards with him, because he would’ve needed them.
