An amazing thing happened to a 16-year-old Hong Kong girl who went to Macau with her mother and grandmother to celebrate New Year. Being given a few pennies to put in the slot machine, she won the jackpot. And that happened in the matter of a few seconds.
Being underage and being not allowed to play in the casino, the girl could not receive the money. But Macau’s gaming authorities decided that the money should be paid out, not to the girl but to her mother.
The decision of Macau’s gaming authorities is based upon the casino policy that specifies a minimum age for entering the casino, but not for playing inside.
