Roney Beal claims to have hit a jackpot of more than $1.2 million in February when playing the Wheel of Fortune slot machine at Bally’s hotel-casino. However, the casino is refusing to pay her.

Technical Glitch Led to Winnings

Bally’s, together with International Game Technology (IGT), are saying that the woman won due to a technical glitch. According to Beal, other players came around her to celebrate the win before she pressed the service button on the machine.

According to Beal, that is when the machine displayed “Tilted” and she was informed by casino staff that she had not actually won. Instead, she was told that the win was voided due to a malfunction known as a reel tilt.

Beal said that an attendant at the casino opened the machine and asked her to “spin it off” but she refused, the attendant then reportedly pressed various buttons and offered her a prize of $350.

Beal’s attorney, Mike Dicroce said, “They fooled with the machine before anybody else had the opportunity to take a look at this.” He went on to claim that the casino may have tampered with evidence of the win.

Beal is hoping that with the help of the law and a bit of luck, she will receive her rightful winnings.
