A woman playing a Sphinx Slot Machine at Resorts World Casino thought she hit the jackpot. Katrina Bookman of Queens is suing the casino after she was offered a steak dinner and $2.25 instead of the $43 million the machine said she had won.
Katrina couldn’t believe her luck when she snapped a selfie next to the screen telling her she won the largest slots jackpot in U.S. history.
When Katrina tried to claim her winnings, she was told that she had actually won $2.25 and was offered a free steak dinner as compensation.
She accepted neither.
In August, when the incident occurred, casino spokesman Dan Bank explained to CNN that “casino personnel were able to determine that the figure displayed on the penny slot was the result of an obvious malfunction — a fact later confirmed by the New York State Gaming Commission.”
The state’s gaming commission said that the machine has a disclaimer that states “malfunctions void all pays and plays.”
Bookman is suing for $43 million.
