Would-Be Jackpot Winner Offered Meals Instead

JackpotImagine thinking you've won a $100,000 jackpot, only to be offered a couple of comps for the buffet instead. That's what Stephen Wilkinson said happened to him.

He was playing the slots at a new casino outside Philadelphia, when an electronic message board lit up. The woman next to him screamed, as the message said Wilkinson had won more than $100,000.

But casino officials said it was an electronic error in the communications system. Wilkinson said he was offered a couple of meal comps at Philadelphia Park as a consolation.

Stephen said he's filing a complaint with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
