A slot machine will not print a voucher for millions of dollars.

All the machines I have seen. When extra large payouts are won.

Will display on the screen, "Hand Payout required, please

notify slot attendant."

 

As I stated on another thread. Maryland's casinos are a joke.

You can win 6 grand on a slot in AC or Vegas without winning

a jackpot.

 

The reason why they told her to come back the next day. Was

so they could review the security camera footage. If she is smart.

She will accept the $6500.00.

I thought they only offered a steak dinner not $6500

Every machine will have on it a label saying that "Malfunctions will Void any payment" or something to that effect. I don't know of Any machines that would have a jackpot of that size except for "Maybe" a Mega-Millions machine. Then I don't know how the NY state gaming system is set up. The Top Dollar slots such as Mega-Millions and the popular "Wheel of Fortune" machines are all linked in what is called a Wide Area Progressive (WAP) network of machines. IE: all WOF machines are linked so that what goes into them builds the Jackpot for All of them. When the Jackpot is hit, it registers at the Manufacturer (IGT, WMS etc) and they verify the jackpot. If you walk into a casino and see a whole row or bank of machines with a lower same number, say a few hundred or thousands on top of them, they are joined as a "LAP", Local Area Progressive where one of those may hit a Jackpot higher than any Individual machine payout the same way. NOW, those are all individual RNG machines and NOT linked together as here in MD where all the payouts are determined by the State Lottery System. You will Never see a Progressive Jackpot on any machines here for Hundreds of Thousands or More as you will in AC and LV. Last time I was in I think MD Live or Perryville, I saw Dollar Machines where the Top "Progressive" that advertised was like $6K or so. That's Peanuts where in AC & LV those same machines will pay Loads "IF" you get Lucky. That's One reason I Won't play here anymore.

THESE are Real "Slot" machines, what you play here is the Lottery Computer!

 

Thanks Bartman, so we know she isn't getting 42mil+ and possibly not the $6500. I'm thinking it will go the way of McKee's, except Bookman may get her $2.25 and a steak dinner.

Because that is the maximum payout for the machine she was playing.

I reread the linked article. Her attorney is asking that

she be paid $6500.00

 

PS: The check they give you will have Federal taxes deducted.

Yes, it did.

FYI, usually the Handpay is any Win over $1100 or $1200, I forget which as I've never hit that big. Anything over that and you have to sign the Tax Form so the Feds will know to hit you for it next year.
