Veronica Castillo should be a millionaire right now, but her Jurassic Riches winnings at the Lucky Eagle Casino[1] in Rochester, Washington, were denied.

For five minutes, she was a multi-millionaire!

Veronica Castillo, from Portland, Oregon thought she had struck it lucky after hitting an $8 million jackpot.

The loan officer was playing alongside her mother on the slots at Lucky Eagle Casino in Rochester, Washington last weekend, when she put $100 in the machine and spun the digital wheels.

The machine declared her to be a winner but all she ended up getting was a measly $80 after staff at the casino say the winning payout was in fact an error.

Congratulations Veronica, you’re an 80 dollaraire.
You should be paid more than $80 because the casino should act in good faith and honor it’s customers when they win. If it says you win, then you win. That’s how casinos work. You can’t just claim that a machine is broken because you don’t want to pay the big wins. If the casino doesn’t pay the full 8.5 million, then they’re opening the door for casinos to start calling every big win an error. Say bye to your casino business if that’s what happens.
