Woman Won $8 Million In Casino But They Only Gave Her $80

A disappointed woman from Oregon, United States has recently come out to complain against the Lucky Eagle Casino.

Veronica Castillo said she won $8 million jackpot on a slot machine game. However, a staff member came over and told her the machine was malfunctioning. They gave her $80 instead.

In an interview, Veronica 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.”

Outraged by the incident, she commented “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.”

As of present time, Veronica is working with a lawyer to sue the casino.

The Odds of Winning In Casino Games

In an article entitled “6 Things Casinos Don’t Want You to Know About Your Odds,” Reader’s Digest shed some light on the topic of winning in casino games.

According to the article, “There’s a difference between the true odds of your winning any particular bet and the odds the casino actually uses to pay you if you do win. That difference is always in the casino’s favor and it’s the reason casino owners (always a government agency in Canada) are rich and you’re not.

Because of the house edge, the casino will always win in the long run, no matter how smart you are, how good you think your system is, or how lucky you are. The Las Vegas strip is paved with the losses of innocent fun-seekers who don’t know that.”

The article goes on to explain that only games such as “blackjack, mini-baccarat, pai-gow poker, live poker, the sports book, and bingo” are less risky compared with other games since they only have a house edge of less than 3%.
