For just a few seconds a gambler in New York was the luckiest person in the world. A woman from Queens thought she had won 43 million dollars in a slot machine at the Resorts World Casino. According to the casino the big win was caused by a technical glitch. The ‘millionaire’ only received a steak instead.
Millionaire for just a few minutes
Katrina Bookman thought that her live had changed forever when she read ‘Printing Cash Ticket. $42,949,642.76’ on the slot machine. She couldn’t believe it, and even took a selfie with the machine. However, dreams do not always come true. The mother of four did not receive a giant check. Instead, the casino said that the slot machine had a malfunction. They offered the woman a meal for free instead.
Bookman was obviously not delighted with the whole situation. She said the slot machine was working perfectly fine when she played. The casino then got help from some representatives from the New York State Gaming Commission. They also told the very disappointed woman that the machine had a technical glitch. The slot machine was fixed quickly after the incident.
