Oregon Woman Wins Millions On Slot Machines, Then The Rug Is Pulled From Under Her

Veronica Castillo, 42, of Portland Oregon was playing slots with her mother at the Lucky Eagle Casino in Rochester, Washington last weekend. She put $100 and started testing her luck. Soon, Jurassic Jackpots showed she had won $8.5 million.

She said, "I was very excited and happy. Then, I couldn't believe it." Apparently, the casino staff came over and told her that the machine had malfunctioned. She stated, "They shut off the machine, took it away, printed out a ticket and gave me $80. To me, it's cheating, may even be fraudulent.”

On the casino machines, a stick says that a malfunction voids all pays and plays. Castillo went on to say "My first thought was, how many people has this happened to? They think they've won, then go away empty-handed." Rocket Gaming Systems, the machine manufacturer, is in the process of conducting a forensic investigation to determine the cause of the display malfunction.

They issued this statement "Rocket has not yet been able to determine how the error occurred although it is absolutely clear that the gaming machine played by Ms. Castillo experienced a display malfunction: This machine offers a maximum jackpot of $20,000 if a maximum bet is placed on all lines. The maximum jackpot that Ms. Castillo could have won based on the number of lines and credits she was betting is $6,000."

Castillo is now looking into getting an attorney. She wrote on her Facebook page "What I expect at the very least, is to create awareness about how the casinos work, when the players get the big winnings!"
