What would you do if you win $8 million on the casino? Get a luxury car? Buy a huge house, perhaps? All those sort of thoughts probably raced to the mind of Veronica Castillo as she saw the amount of $8,589,298.89 on the screen of a slot machine.

Veronica was playing at the Lucky Eagle Casino and realized her life would change soon after she put in $100. Unfortunately though, her happiness turned to disappointment when one of the staff members told her she couldn’t get the prize.

Why? Well, the casino said it was nothing more than a machine malfunction. Instead, she was given only $80.

Instead of $8 million, casino-goer Veronica Castillo only took home $80 because of “machine malfunction.”

During an interview, Veronica said:

“I was very excited, happy. Then I couldn’t believe it. They shut off the machine, took it away, printed out a ticket and gave me $80.”

Although the slot machines had a sticker that says malfunctioning machines void “all pays and plays,” Veronica is still disgusted about it.

She explained:

“To me, it’s cheating, may even be fraudulent. My first thought was, how many people has this happened to? They think they won, then they’re going away empty-handed.”

Reacting to the news, YouTube user Cheung Edward commented:

“If you lose, then you lose. If you win, it’s malfunction. That’s casino.”

As of press time, Veronica said that she will be suing the casino soon so she can claim her winnings.

Do you ever wonder how it’s like to die from a snakebite? This is what a reptile expert tried to answer when he made a diary detailing the harrowing hours of his life after being bitten by a poisonous boomslang snake.

World-renowned American herpetologist Dr. Karl P. Schmidt was attempting to identify a 30-inch venomous snake at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago in 1957 when the reptile attacked him. Believing that the poison dose wouldn’t be fatal,he decided to document the effects of the venom instead of seeking medical attention.

Schmidt’s scientific record of the agonizing 15 hours leading to his death chronicles the disturbing consequences of a boomslang snake’s deadly bite.

Nature truly works in strange ways. An HIV-positive man died not because of his chronic illness, but because the parasitic worms he harbored in his gut contracted cancer.

The New England Journal of Medicine described the bizarre case as a 41-year old man diagnosed to be HIV-positive with extremely low CD4 count. Aside from the viral particles in his body, a fecalysis conducted on his sample yielded a positive result for Hymenolepis nana, a parasitic tapeworm. Further studies showed that tumors were in multiple sites in his body, so samples were taken and sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta. The patient was sent home with antiviral and antihelminthic drugs.

Scientists who tested the patient's samples were left dumbstruck because what they discovered were cancerous cells which were far too small to be of human origin. After running several tests to confirm the origin of the minute cancerous cells, the scientists discovered that the cells contained DNA from the parasite H. nana.
