Imagine thinking you just won $50,000 on a slot machine, but the tribe say ‘No, you won $4,000’
And then imagine how you’d feel when the tribal casino court tells you a light bulb was out on the slot machine leading to what you thought was a $50,000 jackpot. And then imagine feeling as if they just made up that line to get out of paying you the $50,000.
When the slot machine stopped spinning, the screen displayed three red double-sevens in a row.
As music blared from the slot machine, Ryan Sherry, 47, stared at a prize chart to see what he had won.
The result was clear: $50,000 jackpot.
“I jumped up, I was so excited!” said Sherry, recalling that day in April at Scottsdale’s Talking Stick Resort and Casino. “I’ve never had that type of jackpot before. I was only going play a couple hundred dollars, anyway, on the slot machine.”
Go read this one. It’s nuts. It might cause you to reconsider gambling on tribal land.
