Man Loses $100,000 Because He Allowed His Friend To Push A Button On A Slot Machine

Gambler Jan Flato is going to think twice about being nice to his friends from now on, especially when he's at the casino. 

Back in January, the 66-year-old let his friend Marina Navarro push the button on a slot machine at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Fort Lauderdale "for luck," according to WHDH. 

Lo and behold, this spin landed on a $100,000 jackpot, which rightfully became hers due to casino rules. 

"The person who pushes a slot machine button or pulls the arm is the person who wins the jackpot,” Seminole spokesman Gary Bitner said. 

Navarro not only took the money and ran, but she reportedly asked casino security to watch Flato as she left. 

A week later, Navarro even reportedly texted Flato and asked, “Still hate me?” to which he responded, “How could you do that to me?” Her alleged response: "I miss you."
