Hong Kong resident Tin Suet Kan had her appeal rejected for the HK$43 million she believed she had won last month at Starworld Galaxy casino.
She filed the complaint with the Gaming Inspection and Co-ordination Bureau on August 31, the day after the incident.
The Bureau collected evidence from the slot machine producers, the casino and the policeman on duty as well as CCTV footage, combining all of this with a report from an expert who had done research on the incident.
It was concluded that the ticket cash-out history of slot machine No. 343 showed no evidence of being operated nor any record of an individual having inserted money on the day of the supposed operation.
It was found that the machine had actually shown a message onscreen stating that the machine was disabled and to call an attendant.
As well, it was believed that in normal operation, it would be impossible for that particular slot machine to have distributed such an amount.
The Bureau’s rejection of the appeal as a result of the evidence, was signed by the Director, Mr Manuel Joaquim Das Neves.
