It'* called gambling. Not earning. And slot machines are pure luck to begin with. So, if you're lucky enough that the machine is over paying the winners, where'* the issue.

I don't gamble either :P And the issue is that you would know that you were not rightfully getting something and that is called stealing. You would have to live with your conscience and because you do know that eventually you will have to answer for what you've done.

She'* right. Although, as I stated earlier, I would have prbably gotten a good chunk of money out of it, she is right on. Personally, I don't gamble, not even lottery tickets, but if I were in this situation I would probably have given in to temptation . She is also correct on the stealing aspect. Although we can justify and rationalize all we want, right is rght and wrong is wrong.
And karma is one thing, but judgement is a whole other issue.

i call B.*. . its gambling. the casino made a mistake, theres no reason in hell you shouldnt cash in on it. you dont owe them anything. if you were gambling, you wouldnt be concerned about earning. gambling isnt about earning, its about stealing. the only issue is that usually its the casinos stealing from you. when the favor is returned, its KARMA or KISMET against them, if youre into that bs. they had it coming. youre doing the world a favor by taking the cash before the building blows up.

If you make a mistake at a table, then you pay, if they make a mistake they pay...

I'm not one to take advantage of those things, atleast not in any crazy sense..
