Woman Wins $8 Million Jackpot But Casino Won’t Let Her Keep The Money


One gambler in Oregon, U.S. couldn’t believe her luck when she put $100 in a slot machine and won an incredible $8 million, but her joy quickly turned to outrage when the casino staff told her she couldn’t keep the cash.

Veronica Castillo hit the jackpot at a Lucky Eagle Casino slot machine but the casino claimed the result was due to a machine malfunction and gave her just $80 instead.

Speaking to KOIN 6 News, she said:

I was very excited, happy. Then I couldn’t believe it. They shut off the machine, took it away, printed out a ticket and gave me $80.

According to reports, the slot machines do have a sticker that says a malfunction of the machine voids all pays and plays. Despite this, Veronica isn’t convinced by the casino’s stance.

She added:

To me, it’s cheating, may even be fraudulent. My first thought was, how many people has this happened to? They think they won, then they’re going away empty-handed.

Unsurprisingly, Veronica is now working to get a lawyer so she can try and get her winnings through a court case instead.
