duden.deA person in Austria represents a casino video slot that tells him he has won nearly $58 million.nWhen he requests his payout, the casino delivers him $100 and a totally free meal.nby Chris Matyszczyk December 12, 2011 4:44 PM PST nFollow @ChrisMatyszczyk nGet email alerts nIf you've ever been to a casino, you know that the overall objective of the exercise will be to, effectively, lose.nnReally periodically, people do get. But do they always come out with the money?nI muse on this state of world affairs due to the unpleasant story of Behar Merlaku. Merlaku, a 26-year-old Kosovar Albanian, was reportedly pushing the buttons on a slot machine game in Bregenz, Austria, when it suddenly told him he'd won a good deal of money: forty-three million euros--which, at current prices, is just under $57 million.nnFew on this earth would have felt anything other than numb elation at discovering that their dependence on The Person was eventually over.nI feel anger from the machine.n( Credit: CC Andres Rueda/Flickr) However, Merlaku was merely left with the numb element of that after wanting to collect his prize. For, since the Daily Mail reviews, he was provided around $100 for a free meal.nnI have no reason to trust that any meal could be value, say, $56 million. If you have any queries relating to wherever and also tips on how to utilize casino malm� (simply click the next website), it is possible to contact us from our own web site. This one was, probably, worth nearer to $56. Casinos Austria AG, you see, insisted that he had only had four of the five matches on his slot machine.nThe bells, whistles and hosannas that the machine had released telling him he had won a vast vat of cash had been simply a application error.nnI know you can see where this goes. No, to not a fine casino meal, but to a fine Austrian court. nMerlaku didn't recognize the casino's seemingly less than generous offer. He was reportedly banned by the casino. When he pressed for his costs officially, the casino presumably handed the, um, sale to individuals who'd made the position machine.nCasino Austria AG also allegedly happened to mention that in Austria no jackpot could be more than 2 million euros. Which can leave some by-standers most confused. nnMerlaku's solicitors told the Mail: 'There was no contemporaneous impartial assessment of the said error, and no opportunity has since been provided by the company for the machine application to be analyzed, besides by Atronic, a provider to it of jackpot controllers.'nMerlaku himself was offered by the Mail as saying: 'The jackpot arrived up loud and clear. There is music and the sum I'd won--nearly 43 million euros--was displayed on a screen.'nnMusic does frequently indicate a big change of fortune. In this instance, Merlaku even captured footage of his change of fotune on his cell phone. Some experts feel this may not have been the best thing because it shows he only had four of the five reels aligned.nThe situation has its first hearing in January and it will be fascinating to see if the casino provides a pc software expert to assist it defend its case.nnSome may find it surprising, perhaps, that the casino doesn't appear to have reached some type of fair (and confidential) arrangement with Merlaku. Some may bemoan the notion that it chose to offer this kind of modest reward to crush one man's joy at his new-found wealth.nnBut individuals who operate casinos are hardened characters. You are supposed to enjoy the excitement and the expectation. The actual prize, it seems, has to be valued from the cold, hard fingers of the banker. nnWhich isn't, in reality, so different from the remainder of life, can it be?
