Man Wins 57 Million USD, Casino Then Calls It A ‘Software Glitch’

December 13, 2011 2:00 am

We have spotted multiple casino stats and gambling stats before. We spotted this today:

“Merlaku, a 26-year-old Kosovar Albanian, was reportedly pushing the buttons on a slot machine in Bregenz, Austria, when it suddenly told him he had won a lot of money: forty-three million euros–which, at current prices, is just under $57 million.

Few on this earth would have felt anything other than numb elation at discovering that their dependence on The Man was finally over.
However, Merlaku was merely left with the numb part of that after trying to collect his prize. For, as the Daily Mail reports, he was offered around $100 for a free meal.”
