It is a dream come true to win a large sum in one go in the casino. A New York woman, Katrina Bookman, couldn't believe her eyes when she saw $ 42.9 million appear on her slot machine. The casino, the Resorts World Casino, indicated that the winnings could not be paid out because the slot machine was incorrectly adjusted. However, she was offered a steak meal. The alleged winner and her lawyer find that too scanty and start a lawsuit.
Katrina could not finish her luck. When she saw her prize on the slot machine, she immediately took a selfie. With a big smile she is in the picture with her 42.9 million dollars. To WABC she expressed her joy: "I can't even describe the feeling of winning, it was as if my whole body became numb." As a single mother of four, she could use the money well.
Katrina immediately went to collect the money at the casino the next day. Here she was told that she had won nothing. That's how Katrina saw millions pass by. The casino responded to this. They indicated that the winnings could not be paid out because the slot machine was incorrectly adjusted. A CNN spokesperson indicates that the New York Gaming Commission has confirmed that the number on the machine was the result of a technical malfunction. In order not to send her home empty-handed, she was offered a steak meal.
Katrina was deeply disappointed and refused this "prize." Alan Ripka, her lawyer, tries in vain to get money for his client from that moment on. He is now claiming at least $ 42.9 million in compensation. This involves the casino, the manager and the maker of the slot machine. Ripka was talking to CNN: “You can't pretend that a machine is broken because you want it broken. Was the machine perhaps poorly maintained? ”In addition, according to Ripka, Brookman had mental problems because she" never had the chance to win money on the machine. " Thursday, June 15, 2017, he made a complaint because he believes that the casino has paid too little attention to the maintenance of the machines. He accuses them of negligence.
