66-year-old Jan Flato was gambling on a high-stakes slot machine at a casino in Fort Lauderdale about a month ago. Each spin was $50, and he hit the jackpot for $100,000! But then things went south for him REALLY fast.
Flato was hanging out with a 35-year-old Marina Navarro. On his winning spin, he asked her to push the button for good luck. And that turned out to be a very bad idea.
Apparently casinos have a rule where the person who pulls the lever or pushes the button on a slot machine is technically the one who's gambling. So SHE ended up winning the money, and he got nothing!
Jan flipped out in the middle of the casino when they told him. But security footage clearly showed Marina hitting the button. So they gave her a check for 50 grand, another $50,000 in cash and she left without him!
Navarro claims that she offered to give Flato some of the money, but he started sending angry text messages. So she's not giving him anything, and their friendship is over.
