A bill-changing machine at a casino in Regina, Sask., Canada, was misloaded and gave out $20 bills instead of $5 bills. Over two days, the casino says, gamblers walked off with $27,500 before the problem was discovered. About half was recovered, and Regina Casino managers have asked the police to investigate whether criminal charges can be filed against anyone who got away with extra cash. “It was wrongfully taken,” said Saskatchewan Gaming Corp. President Marty Klyne. “I can’t interpret what was going on in their minds at the time, but you’d have to assume that if you put in a $20 bill and you expect four fives back and get four twenties, that your eyebrows might go up.” (RC/Canadian Press) ...Right: anytime a machine at a casino spews out more cash that you put in, you should be extremely suspicious.
