British Columbia Lottery Corporation Pays Players for Slot Glitch

After discovering a flaw in the software of an online Video Slot, the British Columbia Lottery Corporation confirmed that it will pay out Cdn$1.1 million to 9 online gamblers effected by the glitch.

The Province newspaper reported that the error occurred in the progressive jackpot Slot Game, Wizard of Odds according to spokesperson Susan Dolinski. Players hit the jackpot and were not paid.

The game was removed from PlayNow.com on June 10th and an investigation revealed the 9 players that had won and were not paid a total of $1.1 million in jackpots.

Dolinski revealed that other losing players that played Wizard of Odds between July 16, 2014, and June 11, 2015 will also be reimbursed.

    I don't really understand this article. Did they get paid or not? It sounds like they are talking out both sides of their mouth, so who knows if the Province newspaper knows what it is talking about either. I don't know if Dark is serious about playing at more sites like PlayNow.com. because of the laugh afterwards. If he means that it sounds like a joke, then I agree. It is sad enough that it happened and to that many people, but screwing up the public disclosure so you don't know if they got paid or not and that makes them even more untrustworthy in my opinion. There is enough rogue crap online already and this kind of stuff especially from the British Columbia Lottery Corporation does not help get more people to gamble online IMO..........

    LoL, the game was removed after 9 players won a sum of jackpots of 1.1 Canadian dollars? Can't believe. What people are working there? I mean, that's okay if player win the jackpot after the game accumulate 10x or 100x greater amount than jackpot. But it seems the glistch worked well there and those lucky players deserved the nice amounts to be paid of. If the casino can't manage the soft or separate games, so there's nothing to talk about. I am curious to play at more sites like PlayNow.com. LoL. Nice story!

    So the first line says it will pay out to the 9 players but after that it says they wont be paid? And all who lost money on the slot will be reimbursed? Guess it have to be the first one as in any slot rules it says malfunction voids all winnings / bets. Lucky to the losing players , nice cashback coming on its way ! :D
