I can't believe they didn't catch it right away. I don't gamble either, but I would think those vouchers have the info on them for what machine it was. Don't they take a look at the slips to make sure no machine is giving out a ton of money like that?

You would also be running a risk if you tried to really tap it out. I'm certain they would get suspicious if they see you coming back with vouchers for $100K from one machine. Though I don't know if they could do anything if they did catch you in the act. I suppose there is some bylaw that would cover them to get the money back.

That'* a good point. They can probably go after the people who set up the machine incorectly.

Quite frankly, casinos make billions by manipulating the rules of their games so the odds are always in their favor. It is an inherently dishonest business. If I can make money off of their mistake, I will.
