Harrah's Settles in Slot Cheat Case
A poor old widow had accused Harrah's Atlantic City of being Casino Slot Cheats. She took them to court, but before a judge could determine if the Atlantic City casino was indeed a giant slot cheat, they made a settlement. She had originally sued the casino for having cheated her out of an $86,000 slots jackpot.
Angela Domino of Egg Harbor Township sued when Harrah's Resort Atlantic City told her she had won just over $20,000 instead of the bigger amount her slot machine flashed on its meter. Her lawyer says terms of the settlement were sealed under a confidentiality agreement both parties recently signed. The suit had been due to go to trial on Tuesday.
Domino was playing a progressive slots game, in which gamblers at several casinos compete for the same jackpot. Domino says Harrah's told her that three minutes earlier, a player at Trump Marina won the $86,000 prize, and her jackpot was only $20,035.
Boy, the casinos will try anything these days! Even cheating!
