Woman Wins $43-Million Jackpot, Ends Up With A Steak Dinner

If you ever find yourself at Resorts World Casino in Queens, New York, don’t get too excited if you hit the jackpot. Katrina Bookman thought she won $43-million and ended up with an offer for a free steak dinner.

Understandably, Bookman says when she saw her slot machine read $42.9-million, her “body went numb.” To celebrate the moment she thought she was set for life, she took a selfie with the screen. Now, Resorts World is calling it a computer glitch. “Machine malfunctions are rare,” a spokesperson for the casino says, “and we would like to extend our apologies to Ms. Bookman for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

While the machine’s screen displayed the massive jackpot, the printed ticket showed just $2.25. That doesn’t matter to Bookman or her lawyer, who both argue she should be given the multi-million prize. “There was nothing wrong with it when I was playing the machine,” Bookman explains. “How do we know when there’s a problem with it? Once I hit something, now you’re going to say it’s a problem. I totally don’t think that was fair.”
