Gamblers cash in on Caesars casino error
Caesars and Indiana Gaming Commission officials say the machine — named Extra Money — paid out $487,000 over the July 21 weekend before an honest gambler from Louisville brought the problem to their attention.
It turned out that the machine was one of a bank of eight slots in which new software had been installed on July 21, according to a gaming commission incident report.
The other seven machines checked out fine. But the one Ford was using had a switch set in a position for use in the Philippines instead of the United States, and it instructed the machine to multiply credits by 10, the report states. (Thanks to Chip Welfeld for this one)
