The photo that Tringlomane posted is not the photo of the guy that was given $4k instead of $50k -- Tringlomane introduced a photo of another slot machine controversy -- I think, at this point, we have conflated the original story with Tringlomane's pic -- damn this is confusing



Yes, my bad for confusing others.

I was just trying to show that this machine has major issues with display color with the other picture.

Thanks Crystal Math for explaining how he was correctly paid far much better than the casino did.

A question -- for those who know how the machines work in better detail -- what light is it, exactly, that was out? AFAIK, mechanical reels have a strip around 3 separate cylinders. Those strips and cylinders are pretty small, from what I've seen. Are there really lights inside of them, and a different colored light for each (or many) of the symbols? I mean, is there like a blue light, a red light, an orange light, a white light, and maybe some other colored lights in there as well? If so, then why was the orange light socket replaced with a red light bulb?


It is just white lights, and most machines donít have them. All they do is light up a symbol from the back when thereís a win. From the picture, they sure look lit up to me, so I still think the light story may be BS.
I heart Crystal Math.

I think it is too weird a story to have been concocted on the spot so it is probably true about the
back ordered lamp and the intentional raising of the player's expectations.

I am sick to death of this subject but bringing a smartphone to the casino is now required.

ChumpChange,
You are a gnat's whisker away from a ban for flooding and now thread hijacking.

Don't.
If you are enjoying the game, you're already winning.

What I think is making this discussion confusing is people are posting pictures of a different game. I defer to what CrystalMath says in this post, where the player got three double sevens of mixed colors, which is a win of $500*2^3 = $4,000.

In a perfect world, the orange seven should look orange and a red seven should look red. However, the player is not due another $46,000 because of a broken light bulb. If I were a regulator making a decision on this one, I'd have to side with the casino.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I would tend to agree: one thread, one machine, one incident, no distracting confusions.
I do see however TWO issues:

The broken light bulb and also the casino's persistently taking money from the public knowing it would mislead and enhance their hopes that would be dashed.

I would say give him the four grand that he won but sweeten the deal though by no means by the full amount.

The 'M casino' (half way to California from the Strip) had a slot machine with its final
wheel installed backwards, they paid the indicated prize but paid it out of their general
fund, not the jackpot fund. It was a gift to atone for their error.

I agree that the regulators should be able to impose some kind of punitive damage in "malfunction" cases, like this, where the casino is at least partially to blame. In this case, assuming the orange really looked like a seven, I'd impose another $4,000 in damages. However, I've never heard of a casino regulatory body that does this -- it always ways one side or the other wins the full way, a policy that usually seems to cut the casino's way.

I am sure it came out of the salary they saved by terminating the technician who installed that reel.
