UNITED STATES - MAY 22: A cocktail waitress takes orders as patrons play slot machines at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, U.S., on Friday, May 22, 2009. The casino, which has 3,000 slot machines and four restaurants, is the eighth casino to open in Pennsylvania since slots gambling was legalized in 2004, and the first East Coast location for Las Vegas Sands Corp.

Imagine getting a phone call tell you you won over $200,000 on a slot machine from a recent trip to Las Vegas. It happened to Robert Taylor who was recently playing at Treasure Island casino when he hit a jackpot. The slot machine malfunctioned and didn’t notify Taylor or casino personnel that he was a winner. So the Nevada Gaming Control Board caught wind and investigated to find Robert.  They combed through hours and hours of surveillance footage and found out it was Robert. Gaming officials said that he will return to Vegas to collect his overdue prize.
