When the lights and bells went off at a slot machine at the Fortune Valley Casino, in Central City, Colo., Louise Chavez thought she had the win of a lifetime -- $42 million.

But after the casino claimed the machine malfunctioned, all Chavez got was a few dollars, some free meals and a room for the night.
Colorado gaming officials are investigating the incident, but said it could be nothing more than an unfortunate computer glitch. Chavez may not see a dime. :ponder:

"I put my money in there," Chavez told "Good Morning America." "Whatever I won, I should get... There are dreams and there are things I'd like to do -- helping my family, helping my kids. That's why I'm disappointed. I just don't know."

The Denver woman can remember all too clearly when she thought her life had changed.

What about all the times the machines "malfunction" and keep my money, telling me I didn't win?

i'd be blowin **** up if they tried that 'computer glitch' crap with me.

how do you know those games are rigged? b/c when you win they tell you it was a glitch.

That's purely BS; I agree with Myles and this is ripe for a cutthroat class-action lawyer to dig his tentacles into.

If this had happened to me, you better believe Dmitri and Vlad from BB would be paying some folks a home visit.

What a crock of bull. They need to pay that lady her money. Equipment malfunction is their problem not her problem. They need to pay her and take it up with the technician or vendor who handles the machine.

Geez.

I'd sue for at least half of the $42 mil

I'd sue for twice the $42 mil, and settle for half as a compromise.
