Alabama Casino Tries But Fails To Cheat Slot Player Out Of $10 Million Jackpot!

Many casinos have been in the situation that Macon County, Alabama Greyhound Park was in back on May 2nd, 2006. A woman hit the jackpot on one of their machines, but was told by employees that the machine malfunctioned and that she would not be getting paid.

The woman, who was an employee of the casino, decided that she was not going to stand for that kind of nonsense. She sued the casino in hopes that a judge would see her side of the situation.

Now, she has been granted her wish. A circuit judge has ordered that the woman be paid $10 million by Greyhound Park. They will appeal the ruling, but the chances are that the judge has finally stepped up against these lame excuses that casinos use.

This is not the first case in which a person has not gotten paid after winning a jackpot. Casinos all across the world have used the excuse that a machine has malfunctioned, and most of the time they are not held accountable for their actions.

Sherry Knowles sued Greyhound Park back on August 27th and won the case this week. The track (of course) plans on appealing the ruling.
