Daycare workers have to deal with children throughout the whole day. Children are the most curious, cunning, and conscious beings. So, there is no doubt that the job of a daycare worker is not a piece of cake. They have to be face to face with many unexpected situations and embarrassing queries. Let us look at some of the most shocking stories revealed by daycare workers from their personal experiences.
Your Secret Is (Un)safe With Me!
Daycare centers have to deal with lots of children. No secrets are safe with children. They just love to share everything they know and hear about, especially about their parents.
They tend to be more open with daycare workers. This child shared with her daycare teacher that her dad has sleepovers with lots of women. Apparently, her mom is still with her father because of his money. How unexpected is that to hear from a child? We wonder how the teacher reacted to that.
The Right Cue
Growing up, different children go through different experiences. Childcare workers have to deal with all sorts of different scenarios. Kids have their own innocent way of portraying their experiences. Sometimes, they will say something totally strange, but in the most normal tone ever.
This child shared that his mother and her boyfriend had a fight. However, when the little boy went to kiss his mom goodbye before school, he saw they were not dressed — thus, he figured that they patched things up. That’s some innocent way of understanding elders’ relationships.
Kids have the sweetest bond with their mothers. They tend to grow closer, as they spend more time together. As a matter of fact, they’re with their mothers during some private moments too. This is why they know a lot about their own mothers.
For example, this kid told his daycare teacher that his mommy had to call in sick because the plastic in her breast popped. Apparently, his mother had breast implants. Someone needs to tell this kid he shouldn’t share everything.
Stick to the Cod
Many parents choose to teach their children code words for slightly embarrassing business, especially regarding going to the bathroom. When they’re at daycare, the workers are supposed to understand all these special terms.
However, some families go too far with this idea and make it sound inappropriate. This kid was exposed at his daycare when he said he had to drain his snake. This was an expression he learned from his uncle to announce he needed to pee. That must have been a bit of an uncomfortable moment.
All the stories daycare workers hear from the kids are really difficult to digest. Some stories are inappropriate, while some can be pretty scary. This worker once heard a child say he learned to use the eraser when his dad removed zeros from checks.
Yes, the daycare workers have to hear these stories and keep them to themselves. They can barely even make the children understand how private the information they’re spreading is. We hope the kid does not meet a cop anytime soon.
Children spend a long portion of their day in daycare. They tend to be more open with daycare workers. They can share their feelings pretty casually.
This child here shares with the daycare center worker that her father only shows up at school events, so he can pretend to be with his family. This is something super sad for a child to be able to process. However, this child shares this somewhat reluctantly, it seems. Her daddy was a black sheep.
The Big Secret Keeper
If you work at a daycare center, you should know you have a sacred responsibility. You have to be a great secret keeper. You will have to bury the craziest secrets of the children’s family because they will literally tell you anything.
For example, this kid shared with his daycare worker that he has a secret brother, someone his mother had when she was 18, but no one knows about. Whoa! Now, the daycare worker must be wondering what to do with such a bizarre piece of information.
As a daycare worker, you have to educate the children with basic knowledge. Of course, the lessons are going to be playful. They need to be informative too. However, you’ll find some children who keep bringing up their practical lessons.
In a lesson about herbivores and carnivores, this kid shared with the whole daycare group that his parents were carnivores since he saw them being intimate together. We wonder how difficult it is to explain it to the rest of the class.
I Got You!
The children that come into the daycare are not always sweet and naïve — some of them are witty and sharp. The workers have to put in extra effort for those.
This daycare worker shares that one time, a student was telling everyone her brother drowned, and after a pause, she would say she was kidding. She must have grown a dark sense of humor. We hope the daycare manages to keep the rest of the children at bay from falling for her wit.
The Lost Dad
Children are very fond of telling stories, especially those with a big impact. At daycare, students feel excited to share. However, sometimes, these stories are way too personal. This child shares that his father abandoned them and apparently lied about his identity.
Now, his mother has hired a private investigator to find his dad. As traumatizing as the story sounds, the kid narrated the story much simply. We hope the daycare workers find a way to console the child gently.
The Left Out Fella
Children can get upset over the smallest things possible. At daycare, the workers have to keep a close eye that no one is upset about anything. This is why the kids have room to be more comfortable.
This child shared with a daycare worker that his parents watched a special kind of movie for his mother’s birthday. However, he was upset because he wasn’t allowed to watch. We understand why he was heartbroken and hope the worker was able to cheer him up.
The Observant Kid
Children are very observant. They are aware of things that go on around them. They also try to connect the dots. Daycare workers have to work with such active and curious children, which is more than enough to explain how hard they have to work.
This worker was trying to explain the importance of math in a class when the child claimed that his dad doesn’t need math since he grows certain medicinal herbs at home. The worker sure has been blunt to hear so. Surely, the whole class was curious.
Health Conscious Parents
Children ask the most inappropriate question with utter innocence. The daycare workers are responsible for answering these queries with the utmost patience and politeness. This daycare worker shares that one time a child asked why her parents made struggling noises after bedtime.
The worker replied that they exercise after dinner. This really killed two birds with one stone. Now, the kid knows it’s important to exercise and won’t bother her parents. 10 points to this witty daycare worker for saving the day.
The Big Papa
Daycare centers are all about sharing and communicating with others. As a result, the children learn to exchange emotions. Because of this trend, children come up with all sorts of hilarious stories.
For example, this daycare worker shares, she asked a two-year-old in her class about his parents’ names. He called his father “big papa,” as that’s what his mother calls his father. This is hysterical. We hope the worker didn’t burst into laughter. However, we wouldn’t have been surprised if she had.
Mother in Distress
Sometimes, parents don’t think that fighting about even the littlest things affects their kids. But, children have fragile hearts. Daycare workers have to be the bridge in such situations to comfort the children.
This daycare worker shares that one child complained he couldn’t sleep because his parents kept yelling at each other in the middle of the night. Such experiences can be harsh for children of their age. The daycare workers need to carefully help them so that such events don’t cause long-term childhood trauma.
Break a Leg
To some children, their parents are their role models. So, they love to act like their parents whenever they get the chance. You can see the children consciously or subconsciously resembling their parents at daycare centers.
This daycare worker shares that this one time, a child started twerking on the table when he was asked what his parents do for a living. We’re not sure what this kid was trying to explain. However, it must have been an entertaining morning in the class.
Birds and Bees
The children are always curious about birds’ and bees’ conversations. However, unfortunately, most daycare workers have a difficult time explaining such questions. They have to make sure their answers are age-appropriate.
One day, this daycare worker shares that a child asked her when two men are married, who’s going to bear the child? Yes, the questions keep getting more complicated with time. The flying duck with a baby in a basket may not just be the right answer anymore. The daycare workers need to get more creative.
Some children are really close with their parents. They have their own family time and everything. However, sometimes, they pick up odd things that daycare workers have to deal with later. This daycare worker shares once a kid drew a picture of himself and his father.
Except in the picture, they weren’t wearing clothes. This must have been super uncomfortable. Yes, these are some of the more gruesome details daycare workers have to go through in their day-to-day lives.
Daddy Is a Pretty Girl
Children are as innocent as morning dew. They will curiously observe everything around them. This daycare worker shares she was putting on makeup once while she found a boy staring at her.
When she asked if his mother wears makeup, he replied no, his father does. As shocking as this sounds, the boy had the cutest way of explaining how his dad wears makeup and his mother’s dress. Well, people can have hobbies.
The Dark Imitation
Like we said before, children like to imitate their elders, especially their parents. This is a very common phenomenon. Daycare workers have to witness a lot of these behaviors, as they spend a great deal of time with kids.
For example, this daycare worker shares, this girl was talking on a toy phone once and was yelling at her father, pretending to be her own mother. This must have been scary and sad at the same time. We hope the daycare worker keeps the secret to herself.
When children discover something new, their faces glow with excitement. It’s wonderful to hear about unless you’re a daycare worker. Because if you are one, then you have to deal with it.
This daycare worker shares one time a girl told her that her father has a secret family where she has a sister of her own age. The child has been super excited about the whole thing. However, the daycare worker had no clue how to respond to such information.
Children are the best sources for tea spilling sessions. They will tell you all the juicy gossip in the family. Being a daycare worker, you have to hear these whether you want to know or not.
This daycare worker revealed that a kid shared a story in which his mother broke his father’s guitar because he was with another woman. We wonder how the child even comes up with this information. Why would parents even share such details with their children?
The Night Birds
Daycare workers have to be very patient and dedicated. They find themselves in embarrassing situations quite often. So, they have to be careful around the children. However, no matter how hard they try, some children will always succeed in creating an uncomfortable situation.
While reading about owls, this daycare worker shares that one kid shares that her parents make sounds like owls in the middle of the night. We hope the daycare worker found some sort of explanation for the child.
The Closet Greeneries
Some children are real cuties. They’re always a step ahead to be helpful and kind to others. However, they still are children and will spill facts no one asked for. In this daycare center, the children were being taught how to plant trees.
She shared that she was excited to learn so that she could help her father grow his special plants in his closet. We wonder how she found out about the secret closet. The daycare worker has to ignore this secret too.
Geography Is a Crime
Daycare workers deal with all sorts of kids and so, they come across all types of stories. Every kid tells their stories differently, and they’re very interesting to listen to. For example, this daycare worker was talking about geography.
One of the kids was excited to tell his geography story. It turns out his uncle went to jail because of geography, which is weird. However, the daycare worker understood it was not a geography story. The kid misunderstood. Days in daycare are a rollercoaster ride for the workers.
The Broken Computer
Not every kid grows up in a normal household. They see so many ups and downs. There are kids out there who are even unable to put those things into words. They come up with sentences you can’t understand quickly.
A former daycare worker reveals that one of the kindergarten kids shared that his father threw their computer out of the window. When the worker asked what the reason was, he said that his mother’s boyfriend was on it. His mother probably was cheating on his father.
Money in the Bank
Children ratting on their parents is common in daycare centers. They want to tell the class pretty much everything. Being a daycare worker among these children is an absolute challenge.
So, this daycare worker shared that one time, a kid told him she couldn’t do anything peacefully in the kitchen because her mother sold bags full of green herbs to people through the back door. We really are sorry that the kid has to see such things. Hopefully, the daycare worker gets to intervene in such situations.
A Love Parallel?
Kids have their own coping mechanisms. They will deal with things the way they’ve been told to. Most parents hide their secrets from kids in various ways, and kids behave according to that. This daycare worker got to know about this kid whose parents are having affairs.
The kid said the bad lady took her father away. The shocking part is that the bad lady’s child also studied in the same classroom. Daycare workers need to remain very patient in such situations.
The Heavy Burden
A daycare job isn’t easy. Most of the time, childcare workers deal with such issues that are very hard. Kids have no secrets. One of the childcare workers shared this story of a mother. Who hides her whole identity from her child?
They’re totally different people when working in a company. This woman is hiding from the outer world. Kids often don’t get along with such information. At the same time, workers get confused about how to deal with this.
Kids love to pour their imagination through paintings. At the daycare center, the children get to be creative with brushes. This little girl painted a family picture where there was a little child in her mother’s belly.
The innocent kid did not know that was a secret between her and her mother. Parents wanted to keep it as a surprise but were caught off guard when the secret became an art piece.
Bath Time Stories
Kids share hilarious stories based on their daily life. This former childcare worker shared this hilarious story that he’ll never forget. Once a little girl told her that her mom shaved her father’s back while showering.
Another one told her that when her father keeps an eye on her during bathtime, he sometimes takes that time to poop. Daycare workers get to hear this very intimate information. They feel embarrassed when they face their parents afterward. Kids’ way of telling things is weird, albeit hilarious.
Kids are like clay. You can mold them into any shape you want. Similarly, they will believe whatever you’re going to tell them. Telling them about their ill parents might affect their mental health. A daycare worker needs to be very careful about these sensitive issues.
Once a daycare worker shared this emotional story where a little girl believes her father works in heaven — when the truth is, her father is no more. Dealing with such situations is never easy.
The way of telling things is quite different for kids. Sometimes, they’ll say things casually, and other times with utter excitement. One cannot assume what the information is about. This elementary school teacher experienced an awkward situation.
When she asked her student who was picking her up from school, she replied her mother. The teacher again asked, what about your father? The girl revealed that her father is in jail. That was shocking for the teacher. Teachers often get stuck in this kind of situation.
The Harsh Reality
Different children experience different things while growing up. Not every kid has the privilege of having a perfect family. Here the four-year-old kid’s parents split, and they live with their present partners.
Coping up with such things is difficult for the kid. The kid thinks her father physically assaulted her mother. Luckily, the daycare worker understands the matter.
Dark and Beetlejuice
Parents should always tell their kids about their profession. It’s better for kids if they have enough information about their parents. This daycare worker reveals that one of her students explains her parents’ profession in a very funny manner.
She tells everyone that her mother pokes corpses. She loves to say dark and Beetlejuice. Because her parents are morticians, it’s pretty evident they’re letting her know more about that.
Kids adapt to anything very quickly. They will imitate you like a parrot. This tendency of them is quite funny. At the same time, it can bring about awkward situations for the parents.
According to this daycare worker, she shared that a little kid started crying because another kid called her baby. When the kid was asked, the answer was unexpected. The reason was that her mother used to address her father withs “baby” every night. That’s why she picked it up.
The Sergeant Dad
Kids have their own way of explaining a word. They get creative when sharing their thoughts. Here, the daycare worker disclosed one of the hilarious stories she came across. When asked about her father’s profession, the kid said her father fixed breasts.
That was an unlikely, very weird answer. When the daycare worker confronts her mother, she replies that he’s an anesthesiologist. The kid must have picked it up at a family gathering. The kid has a sharp ear. She picked up this bizarre word from a casual conversation.
Kids and their honesty! You cannot see any other human being as straightforward as a kid. They’ll say things so bluntly. The daycare worker faces this type of situation every day.
Here, the daycare worker shared her story. When her kindergarten student protested and said that he didn’t choose to be there, but that his dad did, the OP couldn’t really argue.
The Sneak Peek
Kids are always eager to share whenever they hear something relevant. Daycare workers spend a great deal of time introducing new things to the children. However, the children sometimes are almost always ready to intervene.
For example, this daycare worker shares the time she showed handcuffs, and a child was eager to share how her mother also cuffs her father sometimes at night. Situations like such are really sabotaging. The daycare worker must have had a difficult time diverting the class’s attention from the topic.
Toy Story Again
A daycare worker has to deal with weird situations. You’ll never know what’s coming next. Kids will bring in whatever they find attractive, and it can be anything. Their curious minds have no boundaries.
According to this daycare worker, one of the kids brought her mother’s toy with her. Workers were so confused that they didn’t even know how to turn it off. You cannot blame the kid, though. They put the daycare worker in a hassle.
What happened to these children is tragic and it’s pretty clear that their biological parents are the definition of toxic. At least the daycare handled it well and the kids will be okay.
Good on the daycare for calling an ambulance straight away! We hope that the foster parents got to care for the siblings after that. We also like to think that the kids weren’t left with their biological parents while unsupervised ever again.
We have a few questions for you. Firstly, how would you react if you ended up winning millions of dollars after one attempt on a slot machine? Secondly, how would you react if the casino you won the money at took it away from you? We all wish we didn’t have to spend years working hard in order to earn our money. Instead, wouldn’t it be great to simply pull a lever and win $8.5 million? Because this is exactly what happened to one lady who ended up winning a life-changing amount of money. However, minutes later, the casino staff would put a huge damper on her celebrations.
Why Did They Take Her Money Away?
Veronica Castillo isn’t a regular at casinos. However, when she ended up going to one a couple of years ago, she was sure that she had won a staggering $8.5 million after trying her luck on a slot machine – until the casino refused to give her a cash prize.
This sent Veronica down a rabbit hole as she learned exactly why the casino decided not to give her the money that she believed was rightfully hers.
Weekend Away With Mom
Veronica could never have foreseen that she would become the main character of this crazy casino story. As far as she was concerned, she was just looking to get away for the weekend with her mother.
The Portland, Oregon woman took her mom to the Lucky Eagle Casino in Rochester, Washington. Despite not being a gambler, Veronica wanted to try her luck on some of the slot machines. In a way though, it actually made sense that Veronica was so interested in numbers…
She Was Sure Something Was Wrong
Seeing that she is a mortgage consultant with nearly two decades worth of experience under her belt, it is safe to say that Veronica understands how money works really well.
So when she was stripped of her $8.5 million winnings during her trip to the casino, she was convinced that something wasn’t quite right. For someone who knows numbers, things simply didn’t add up. However, she did not suspect anything when she entered the casino…
Time To Hit The Slots
Immediately, Veronica was dazzled by the bright lights and sounds of Lucky Eagle Casino. In an instant, she understood what all the fuss was about and why people love going to casinos.
All the signs pointed to her wanting to try her luck on some of the slot machines. These tall, mysterious machines are extremely popular due to how easy they are to use and their bright, luring lights. However, there was one particular slot machine that piqued her interest…
It seems that Veronica is a huge fan of dinosaurs because the slot machine that caught her attention was a prehistoric themed one called “Jurassic Riches.”
Not thinking too much of it, Veronica had chosen her machine and was about to make her move. However, before she did that, she sat down and thought about some of the things she already knew about slot machines, and gambling in general. Nevertheless, this wouldn’t take anything away from how excited she was…
Excited To Play
Ultimately, Veronica knew that there was a good chance that she would walk out of that casino empty handed. However, this didn’t stop her from going in there with her mother and having a great time. She was excited by the mystery.
Having rarely gambled in her life, this was pretty much new territory for her. She was aware that casino games tend to favor the casino. However, she had limited knowledge about the intricate systems behind a slot machine…
Sophisticated Slot Machines
It takes a lot of sophistication and ingenuity to engineer a successfully functioning slot machine. They usually include a random number generator and a number of intricate systems within the machine.
This means that slot machines have a near-infinite amount of combinations to make the results as random as possible. As for Veronica, she wasn’t clued up on the intricacies of slot machines. All she was interested in was trying her luck, just once, and then she would get on with her life.
She Heard So Many Success Stories
One of the reasons that Veronica had such a carefree attitude when she saw those slot machines was because of the many success stories she had heard in recent times.
Take this happy couple for example, who pulled the lever during a trip to the casino. Just like that, they were half a million bucks richer. There was a small part of her that believed that maybe she could become one of those success stories…
Trying Her Luck
Unlike other casino-goers, who will spend an entire day on the same slot machine, pulling the lever until they get a cash prize, Veronica did things differently.
Having not caught a gambling bug, all she wanted to do was choose a random machine, which she did, put a note in it, and see what would happen. So she inserted $100, pulled the lever, and hoped for a good result. Nothing could prepare her for what the slot machine would end up showing her…
$8.5 Million Jackpot!
When everything was said and done, Veronica couldn’t believe what she was seeing. On the screen of “Jurassic Riches,” it said that she had won over $8.5 million! $8,589,298.90, to be precise!
She had never really won anything in her life and now, she had won a sum of money that was, without a shadow of a doubt, life-changing! Naturally, she was completing surprised by the outcome and in an interview, she recalled her initial reaction after seeing that figure of money.
She Was In Shock
In an interview with Inside Edition, Veronica was simply asked what it was like to win $8.5 million. Her answer was pretty understandable. “I was in shock,” she said. “[And] was excited.”
She also reiterated her feelings in an interview with KOIN 6, saying the following: “I was very excited and happy…couldn’t believe it.” During those initial few minutes after winning the jackpot, the biggest question going through Veronica’s mind was what she could do with that sort of money…
What Do You Do With $8.5 Million?
Seeing that she was already a successful mortgage loan officer, Veronica was pretty happy with her life prior to this incredible moment. As a result, she was struggling to work out what she would do with such a large sum of money.
One thing was for sure though, she could probably buy anything she wanted. Also, she would never have to work another day in her life. However, these dreams were about the be shattered in a matter of 15 minutes…
15 Glorious Minutes
For the next 15 minutes, Veronica was giddy with joy and started calling her loved ones. Despite going away with her mother, she called her straight away to tell her to come and find her so she could tell her the incredible news.
Literally, eight million thoughts were racing through her mind at once and all she wanted was for someone to come along and hand over her winnings. However, something completely different happened that would turn this story on its head…
They Shut Off The Machine
As members of staff came towards her, Veronica assumed they were simply coming over to congratulate her for winning the jackpot prize.
However, she assumed wrong. It turns out that the reason the staff members arrived on the scene was that they wanted to shut down the slot machine. “They come to me and say, ‘We have to shut off the machine,'” she said. But that was just the start of her terrible experience at the Lucky Eagle…
No Prize For You
Not only did the workers at the casino shut down the “Jurassic Riches” slot machine, they also came to inform Veronica that she hadn’t actually won anything. “
Then I was like asking ‘What about the prize?” she said. “And they said, ‘there’s no prize.’ It was horrible.” Completely confused and distraught by what they were telling her, Veronica had a million questions and demanded answers in that very instant. However, things only seemed to get worse…
They Gave Her $80
While she had plenty of questions that she wanted answers to immediately, the staff at the Lucky Eagle desperately tried to appease her with some sort of instant compensation.
However, Veronica couldn’t believe her eyes when one of the workers gave her a ticket worth $80. $80.35, to be precise! This meant that Veronica received a one-hundred-thousandth of what she thought she’d get. Nevertheless, she was still determined to find out the reason that her dream jackpot had gone wrong…
Legitimate Reasons Or Just Excuses?
In short, the staff explained to Veronica that the slot machine she had been using had malfunctioned. Despite displaying the $8.5 million on her screen, it was actually a display error.
Naturally dumbfounded by the explanation, Veronica couldn’t believe what they were telling her. Still unconvinced by their reasons, CEO John Setterstrom began to break down some key rules that would hopefully set the record straight – most notably, a sticker that rested on the side of each slot machine…
Rules Are Rules?
John Setterstrom was quick to explain that his casino was able to retrieve any crucial data to prove that what Veronica saw was actually faulty.
“We have backup systems as well, and screenshot systems and systems that are built within the systems that can accurately depict and we can show it to the guest,” he said. More importantly, though, the CEO showed KOIN6‘s Lisa Balick some of the casino rules. One of them claims that “machine malfunction voids all pays and plays.”
She Accused Them Of Fraud
Although the casino executives tried to explain to her what had happened, Veronica simply wasn’t buying it. As far as she was concerned, the casino was “cheating” and trying to avoid paying her what was rightfully hers.
“To me, it’s deceiving, it’s cheating, it might even be fraudulent,” she said in an interview. “My first thought was ‘how many times did they have these kinds of instances and people walking away thinking they have won and going empty-handed?”
Attorneys Agreed With Her
Despite the red tape that the casino had wrapped around the money that Veronica wholeheartedly believe belonged to her, there were some people in high places who believed she was right.
Attorney Alan Ripka, who is representing another lady in a similar situation, had the following to say: “You walk through the door. You expect that if you are risking your money, that if you win, you will be paid.” So maybe Veronica had a dog in this fight after all…
Long Walk Home
Veronica was going through so many emotions. All in one breathe, she felt sad, angry, frustrated, hopeless, betrayed and depressed. As she walked away from that casino, she vowed that the only reason she would return would be to collect her winnings.
Feeling empty inside, Veronica did not know what to do with herself. All she could do was go back home and rest her head. She had been through so much in such a short space of time.
No Silver Lining?
Veronica was determined to find the positives in her devastating evening. However, it was near-on impossible. As a result, she simply went back home to rest her head and spend some quality time with her dog.
However, this certainly was not the end for her. Veronica was hell-bent on getting to the bottom of this controversy. In fact, it wasn’t just Veronica who took offense to what happened. Others wanted to help her to try and find some sort of justice…
CEO Claims This Never Happened Before
Lisa Balick, who works for KOIN6, took it upon herself to do some digging of her own, in an attempt to set things straight.
When she called the CEO of Lucky Eagle Casino, John Setterstrom, she was surprised by what he had to say. “Obviously, $8 million, there’s no machine in the state that pays that,” he told her. “This has never happened there before.” Furthermore, the casino tried to make amends for what had happened…
CEO John Setterstrom revealed that in his 20+ years at the casino, he had never witnessed a situation quite like this one. He also said that he was planning on getting to the bottom of what exactly went wrong in the “Jurassic Riches” slot machine.
And it’s not just the casino who launched a full investigation. The manufacturer of the machine, Rocket Gaming Systems revealed that they are going to work out the cause of the malfunction. That’s not all though…
This Should Not Have Happened In Washington
What makes the case even more perplexing is how it happened in Washington state, a part of America that prides itself on having its own casino lab.
It is here where experts regularly inspect gaming machines to make sure that these sort of things do not happen. As a result of this strange fact, one of the representatives of the Washington State Gambling Commission firmly believes that this will not, and must not, happen again…
Just A One-Off?
According to Heather Singer from the Washington State Gambling Commission, a case like Veronica’s shouldn’t dissuade others from trying their luck on a slot machine. “Nationwide, it’s extremely rare that we see a major machine malfunction,” she said.
“So consumers should feel pretty confident that when they’re sitting down at a gaming machine that it’s going to function properly.” However, she probably won’t want to tell Veronica that anytime soon. Soon enough, the Lucky Eagle issued a formal statement about what happened…
Shortly after the slot machine fiasco, the casino issued a formal statement, proving that they were taking the situation seriously. They were as determined as Veronica to get to the bottom of the error.
However, the casino also shared information in an attempt to prove that the slot machine had, in fact, malfunctioned. They also reiterated what John Setterstrom had confirmed in the interview, that the machine has a maximum jackpot of $20,000. But the casino wasn’t out of the woods just yet…
While the casino was adamant that the slot machine Veronica used had displayed an error, causing the confusion, they still wanted to apologize to her for the inconvenience.
The casino issued a formal apology, expressing “deep regret” over what had transpired. The staff at the Lucky Eagle didn’t realize how machine errors can be traumatic for their users. Nevertheless, Veronica was feeling in the mood to forgive the casino for their faux pas. And that wasn’t all they did for her…
Take Some Freebies
The casino didn’t just issue a formal apology to Veronica for the inconvenience. It also made a concerted effort to make her feel better, by supplying her with a number of freebies.
In order to compensate her for her misfortunes, the casino gave her a weekend stay at the hotel free of charge, with meals included. However, this is certainly not the end of the story. As far as Veronica is concerned, she has some unfinished business…
Taking Legal Action
Despite the casino trying their best to appease her, Veronica isn’t satisfied. She wants to get an attorney, in an attempt to get what she believes is rightfully hers.
And if she doesn’t win her case, she at least wants to share her story with the world. “What I expect at the very least, is to create awareness about how the casinos work, when the players get the big winnings!” she wrote. Whatever happens, we hope that Veronica gets some sort of happy ending.
She’s Not The Only One
Make no mistake about it: Veronica Castillo isn’t the only person who thought she had hit the jackpot on the slot machines, only to end up walking out of the casino empty handed. 44-year-old Katrina Bookman thought she had won $42.9 million!
She even took a selfie of herself with the jackpot that appeared on the screen. However, she faced the same fate as Veronica. Jerry Rape also missed out on big money, believing he had won $1.3 million on the slots.
