$42 million anticlimax for 90-year-old granny

A Miss Kitty slot machine spilled out a $42 million jackpot at the Isle Hotel Casino four years ago. Pauline McKee thought she had struck oil, but the gambling parlor refused to pay the staggering cash prize. An Iowa Supreme Court ruling has now put an end to the dispute.

The gambling granny sued the Waterloo-based gambling parlor. Four years later, the Iowa Supreme Court has ruled that the casino doesn’t have to award the announced amount. Instead, McKee is entitled to a ‘whopping’ $1,85 payout. The maximum jackpot is $10,000, while bonus prizes are not allowed, read the slot’s user-agreement.
