Patrons Cash in on Casino's Error
As reported by the Louisville Courier-Journal: "The Caesars Indiana casino lost nearly half a million dollars over two-days last month on one slot machine that had been incorrectly set to give players credit for 10 times the amount of money they put into it. "Caesars and Indiana Gaming Commission officials say the machine - named Extra Money - paid out $487,000 over the July 21 weekend before an honest gambler from Louisville brought the problem to their attention. "The commission is investigating the matter and might penalize Caesars for failing to follow procedures designed to prevent such a problem, said Jennifer Arnold, its deputy director. "But so far, at least, there's no indication that criminal behavior was involved, according to casino management and the Indiana State Police. ".Caesars, meanwhile, plans to try to get back its money."
