Instead, the casino told her she was only entitled to the $2.25 she had left in the machine when it allegedly went haywire and for her troubles, they offered her a steak dinner on the house. She didn't accept either as a consolation. After all, a free steak doesn't do much to cleanse one's palate of such devastating disappointment, and now she's suing the gambling establishment, demanding the nearly $43 million payout. She's also seeking damages from the casino for failing to maintain the game, as well as the company that makes and maintains the particular slot machine. The lawsuit alleges that the incident left Bookman feeling embarrassed, anxious, and depressed.
