    Well that is just wrong! Reminds me of that movie with Ashton Kitcher and Cameron Diaz.

    That's what you get when you let people push your buttons! :faint:

    Perhaps the only civil way to solve it is to give the jackpot to an impartial local in this case, VMB's own @deansrobinson ! :D

    learn something new...

    but read the article again
    it doesn't appear to be such a clear cut story of "he paid, she played"
    the article mentions that the video showed the woman hit the button ... but doesn't confirm if the video showed that the man fed the machine
    and she claims that she put $440 into the machine herself
    now whose money was being played at the time the jackpot hit? who knows

    either way, i'll be sure to "pull my own handle" :D

    I always thought it was the person in the seat. I now believe it is the person hitting the button. But - I would guess the person in the seat hits the button 90+% of time anyways, so that theory would generally hold.

    As to the person taking the jackpot - BITC.....

    wow
    What a ******-factory, the buy in =the winner.

    I've had my Wife, Friends & even my Niece, push the button on a slot.
    It was never, imparted or expected with the lack of their buy in
    to receive any winnings on any slot jackpot.

    That's just like having a random girl toss the dice on your Craps bet,
    did she lay the cash=NO!
    should she win the wager=NO!

    Wow- thanks for posting this! I've had so many people "hit the button for good luck" in the past! Well, I guess no more:)

    I don't know, I'm kinda looking for the April 1 dateline on this one.

    I looked for regs on this and didn't find any. Which I think means it's up to the casino to adjudicate. They must have bought her story.

    Some drunk idiot jerk wanders by and hits the button on your machine to be an asshole and it wins something, they're going to give it to him instead of you? I don't think so.

    I especially don't buy the bit about no lawyer will take the case.

    That is just awful. If his story is completely truthful - that guy needs to pick better friends.
    What kind of 'friend' stiffs you? Even a 50-50 split would have made it a little easier to accept.

    If the casino video showed the guy inserting the money, a good lawyer mght be able to make a case, maybe? Or else the law is so well written/worded in such an ironclad way there is no room for interpretation.

    And the comment @Chuck2009x made about a scenario where a stranger walking by hits the button is interesting...

    It is a Native American casino and they operate under their own rules, many of which suck, but I'm not buying this story as written. Something is missing.

    I frequently play a slot machine with friends, maybe we each put in $20 and alternate pressing the button pulling the handle. We trust each other and know that we would split any jackpot (of course one person would have to take the jackpot and pay the taxes, so it would be a net of tax split), but you could definitely see a conflict arising with less trusted "friends".

    Does this give some pause to some of you that participate in the high limit slot pulls organized on this board?
