A casino which refuses to pay a jackpot

A casino which refuses to pay a jackpotWhat would you do with a million dollars? It’s a question we’ve all pondered at one time or another. For Aurea Privee, she could smell the sweetness of the bills being fanned in front of her face. She was so close to a million dollars that she could literally taste it. But close only counts in horseshoes, unfortunately, and Privee’s million-dollar dream quickly turned into a poor man’s nightmare.

Aurea Privee walked into the Fiesta Casino in Henderson and started playing the penny video poker machines. The retired Privee had an ongoing relationship with the Fiesta casino; mostly of the give-give variety. Privee played the machines, but rarely won. Privee claims she spent twenty minutes between her regular bingo games dropping her pennies into a video poker machine. After a string of mediocre hands, Privee finally caught the hand of a lifetime.

The buzzers sounded, the coins dropped, and hearts raced as Privee had suddenly hit the one-million dollar and eight-two cent jackpot. Excited to be Nevada’s newest millionaire, Privee was attempting to retrieve her money when an agent from the Nevada Gaming Control Board showed up unexpectedly. Upon “careful” examination, the agent found that the machine’s maximum jackpot was supposedly set at $20,000, $980,000 shy of Privees prize. So, why would a machine set at $20,000 spit out $1,000,000? It’s a question Privee wanted answered.

What is a video poker machine and how does it work?

In the world of gambling, evolution is a key factor in its popularity. From Roman soldiers playing dice, to astronauts shuffling their decks in the space shuttle, gambling is as old and widespread as anything throughout history. But without the modern conveniences of today's gambling, it wasn't accessible to such a broad audience.

When humans began to revolutionize machinery, video poker machines weren't high on their list. Yet since they've been around, these machines have grossed billions upon billions of dollars, and have become some of the most popular items in various shops and casinos.

Video poker machines work by using a random number generator (RNG), which is a software algorithm used to ensure a random outcome of game play. Though not all RNG's operate the same, they all offer completely random numbers, with billions of variants. When the machine isn't in action, the RNG runs hundreds of times per second.
