Faulty slot machine leads to $46M lawsuit
by UPI

TORONTO -- Canada's Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. is being sued for $45.9 million by a man who claims he was denied a $42.9 million slot machine prize.

Pawel Kusznirewicz, 55, claims in his suit the Buccaneer slot machine he played on last December at an OLG-run casino north of Toronto lit up and told him he'd won the huge prize.

Instead, he was told the machine had malfunctioned and he was offered dinner for four instead, the Toronto Sun reported.

"For $42 million, a four-person buffet? You got to be kidding," Kusznirewicz told the Sun, adding he didn't accept the offer.

In response, an OLG spokeswoman said the maximum jackpot the Buccaneer machines pay is $9,025 and there was an error message on the screen Kusznirewicz was playing.

"Bottom line is the machine malfunctioned, this was not a winning play, the machine goes nowhere close to those astronomical figures that are being quoted," spokeswoman Allison Sparkes told the Sun.

The OLG said provincial rules regarding malfunctions were followed and such warnings are posted on every slot machine in the province.
