Ex-colleagues in court over Megabucks jackpot
Two Houston residents are wrangling about a $13 million jackpot. Diana Walker took a gambling trip to Las Vegas. Her co-worker Bill Perrin asked her to place a $6 wager on the Megabucks slot machine
Perrin told his colleague exactly how to wager on the slot machine, according to FOX 26 News. They agreed that if his wager would result in a jackpot win, they would share the cash prize.
Mike Griffin, Perrin’s lawyer, revealed that Diana Walker stated in court that the $6 wager resulted in $15 in credits on the mentioned slot game. Walker decided to continue spinning the reels instead of cashing the credits.
Walker managed to take home a jackpot of almost $13 million. Perrin claims he should receive 50% of the jackpot, nearly $6.4 million. However, Perrin believes that his former co-worker should give him a dime.
“It’s really frustrating that somebody tries to take away your jackpot money. She used my money to keep on playing and eventually won a $13 million jackpot
. She doesn’t has the right to claim the entire jackpot,” Perrin commented.
Diana Walker’s attorney didn’t confirm the agreement between the two ex-colleagues. Walker and Perrin never had a deal about the details, according to court records.
