Amidst the hype about Macau overtaking the mightly Las Vegas in every way shape and form in the next few years comes this little nugget of "slot machine malfunction" news.

Apparently a woman from Hong Kong won a HK$43M jackpot (US$5.5M) on a slot machine after dropping in five Hong Kong dollars. Upon initial inspection of the machine, the casino (as yet unnamed) refused to pay out the jackpot because the machine's maximum jackpot is HK$45,000.

The gambler complained directly to the Macau Gaming Inspection and Co-ordination Bureau, who have ruled in favor of the casino. Wah waaaaaah.
