Slot machine in tribal casino near Phoenix had burned out light that was backordered for eight weeks but machine remained on the floor taking people's money and offering possible payoffs since light bulb was not a malfunction of the algorithm

Result was player saw two orange 7s and red 7 as if all three were red and thus player expected fifty thousand payout but machine properly paid out only four thousand dollars for the two orange 7s.

I was just about to post this but I think this casino is where one of our forum members works so I didnt post it.

Sometimes facts stink. If their story is true, he won $4,000.

He should STFU, take the money, and move on.

The casino is in the right on this one.

So, according to the explanation, even if bells and whistles were going off, and Jackpot was flashing like it hit, what only matters is whether the algorithm functioned properly.

Say what you will, he doesn't have to pretend to be pleased by the malfunction ruling, even if legitimate. Not his fault.

I am under the impression the bells and whistles went off for the $4,000 hit. If the machine triggered something exclusive to a $50,000 hit, I might change my opinion.

It seems to be only a variation on the "malfunction voids all plays" situation.

Assuming the casino can show their explanation is correct, there should be no other payday for the bettor than the four grand.

They should pay him the remaining $46,000 and keep their slots' light bulbs more up to date in the future.

I would estimate that the $46k is nothing compared to the negative press this story has generated.

Also, sounds like shit design on the slot machine. Two "orange" 7s and 1 "red" 7 that looks like an orange? Either intentionally misleading the player to think there are more of the premium symbols on the reel, or really bad design.
