I would think the guy should get his money.  The casino could sue whoever maintains their machines, or whoever manufactured it, but it seems like they should be responsible for whatever it does on their premises.

Malfunction my fat butt. That's like if you were paying craps and the dice came up how you wanted 'em to, and the guy said "Sorry, sir. They weren't supposed to land like that. I apologize for the mistake."

He will probably get a settlement when he sues.  But the casino is correct: $166,666,666.65 is obviously a malfunction for a non-progressive slot machine.  I imagine if they paid it, it would be the highest slot machine payout ever given. The entire Indian casino might not even be worth 166 million bucks.

Payouts are always printed on the face of the machines.  I think they should pay him whatever the advertised payout was for the combination of symbols came up in the window.  Sounds like that would be $99,000.  He'll never get $166 million out of them.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
