Woman wins and then loses at Resorts World
From Eyewitness News:
It was casino chaos in this video shot by Katrina's partner after she reported her huge winnings. She was surrounded by customers and casino personnel and security. Escorted off the casino floor, she was told to come back tomorrow for the decision.
Katrina remembers her next day visit to the casino, "I said what did I win? (casino rep said) You didn't win nothing." Katrina says the only winning the casino offered was a steak dinner.
"They win and the house doesn't want to pay out. To me that's unfair," says her attorney, Alan Ripka.
Ripka says, at the very least Katrina should win the maximum allowed on the Sphinx machine the casino says it's $6,500.
"The machine takes your money when you lose. It ought to pay it when you win," said Ripka.
The state gaming commission told us Katrina's machine malfunctioned. Stated on all machines "malfunctions void all pays and plays."
