I think she has a strong case
She has a picture
These slot machine are no longer mechanical
Its all computer
Computer gives her 8.5 mil, I consider it fairly won.

I'm not so confident in her chances of having a case. Now, I'm not too familiar with that machine, but I do know that all slots have a warning on them "All malfunctions void payouts" or something similar on them. If the casino forked out some cash for the "jackpot", then it may be a pitiful consolidation payment, but I can't say for sure.

The machine is certainly not mechanical, you're correct. They should be able to go into the machine history and see what happened, and whether or not a legitimate win had occurred.

On a related note, I have seen "ghost jackpots" hit before in my experience, and they were fictitious jackpots of $1,000,000+.

What video? The articles in the OP indicate that she wasn't able to record anything beyond a picture, which is understandable. We have the same practices here, no pictures or videos allowed.

"She recorded the machine on her phone". Do you say you "record a picture"?

Ah, right. I misread the article, I was under the impression that she just snapped a shot of the machine. Regardless, video proof won't really do much for her case if the machine history says otherwise.

I would simply like to see the winning combination that gave such a prize... it's a clue to how easy it would be to say it was a malfunction or not.

Why is that understandable? What possible bad can come from someone recording a machine?

It's only protecting the casinos ass in case someone has a legitimate jackpot and the casino wants to cry foul.

There was some video recently at a NY casino where machines were stealing credits from people.
They got pissed she was recording as well.
