LAS VEGAS, Nevada: A tourist hit a $230,000 jackpot on a slot machine in Las Vegas, but due to a malfunction in the machine he was never informed. However, after a long search, the Nevada Gaming Control Board said they have found the winner of the money. The man was identified as Robert Taylor from Arizona, who played a slot machine at Treasure Island Hotel and Casino, state gaming officials said. According to a news release, to identify the winner gaming officials combed through hours of surveillance videos from several casinos, interviewed witnesses, shifted through electronic purchase records and even analyzed ride share data provided by the Nevada Transportation Authority and a rideshare company. “I commend the agents of the Enforcement Division.. for ensuring that the public trust in the gaming industry remains strong by spending countless hours over two weeks to ensure that a patron is awarded winnings owed to him,” said James Taylor, chief of the board’s enforcement division. The release added that Taylor has returned home when he was notified of his winnings last week, and gaming officials said he will return to Vegas to collect the $230,000.
