Best Odds In The House: Casino Cash Machine Pays 5x Odds!

When casino customers find out that a machine is paying off, they'll keep playing it.

But it was no gamble recently at Bluffs Run casino in Council Bluffs when a bill changer began spitting out $100 bills instead of 20s. Customers walked away with almost $47,000 extra .

According to state records, casino employee Judith Roederer-Dillard mistakenly placed the $100 bills in one of the casino's bill changers at about 5 a.m. Dec. 18 . After that, customers who inserted $100 bills in anticipation of receiving five 20s instead got five 100s. Employees were oblivious to the problem.

"It went on for about six hours," said the casino's finance director, Janae Sternberg , who testified at Roederer-Dillard's recent unemployment-benefits hearing. "You know, some of the guests had figured out that there was a malfunction and they went back - over and over and over."

Sternberg said the machine was shut down and its contents counted, turning up a $46,640 shortage.
