Woman's $8 million jackpot slot pull turns out to be just $8o.



ROCHESTER, Wash. -- A woman thought she'd hit the jackpot when the slot machine showed $8 million!

But, turns out it was a major machine malfunction. In reality, it turns out she won $80.

The Lucky Eagle Casino is now working with the manufacturer to figure out what went wrong. They've also reached out to the woman and apologized. Still, she says she feels cheated.

"They come and spend thousands and thousands of dollars with the hope of winning a big prize like I did. Then they come and carelessly tell you, guess what, the machine was malfunctioning, we cannot pay you,' " the woman said.

Casino officials said even if the machine showed $8 million, the max payout is $40,000.

The casino did pay the woman her $80 win.
