Pa. slot machine pays $25,000, or $24,988 too much

Published - Jun 21 2011 09:59AM EST

PITTSBURGH — State regulators say a gambler won a $25,000 jackpot on a Pittsburgh casino slot machine that should have paid out only $12.

The Gaming Control Board tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette the false jackpot happened on May 29, 2010. The generous payout happened in one of five instances involving Rivers Casino machines that weren't properly tested or certified.

The board was to have levied an unspecified fine against the casino. But it nixed a consent agreement with the casino Monday after some board members felt a stronger message needed to be sent.

Casino officials say the player was allowed to keep the jackpot and that it paid all taxes on it. Rivers spokesman Jack Horner says the casino takes the matter seriously and has retrained all of its technicians.

Totally goes the other way. Have had that happen to several friends at the same land-based casino in Hakinson, ND......Instead of $1000 they got $50. This was on a poker machine for both of them.....
