Man denied $100,000 jackpot because he let friend push the button
Jan Flato says when he allowed his friend to hit the button on the slot machine for luck, he had no idea that move would cost him $100,000. Flato says he was with his friend, Marina Navarro, and was playing video poker at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino when he hit it big. Lights flashed and the pay line showed that he had won the $100,000 jackpot or so he thought. When it was time to collect the winnings, he received some bad news. Once managers of the casino analyzed the video, it showed that Navarro pushed the button, which made her the rightful winner of the jackpot.
