Behar Merlaku Suing Casino After Slot Software Glitch Said He Won $57 Million

Posted Dec 12, 2011

I would be pissed too. Imagine playing a slot machine and seeing lights flash as it says that you won $57 million. The problem is that the slot machine had a “software glitch.” This is why Behar Merlaku is suing the Casinos Austria AG in Bregenz.

When Merlaku went to claim his prize at the cashier, the casino owners said that it was all a mistake because of a “software glitch.” The casino owners argued that the jackpot alarm went off erroneously. The slot machine that Merlaku was playing required five matches and he only got four. So what did they end up settling on? Merlaku was given $100 and a free meal.
