Casino worker admits to making fake slot jackpot

WAYLAND TOWNSHIP, MICH. (WOOD) — A former casino worker who cashed in on fake jackpots from the Gun Lake Casino will not serve any time in prison.

Melanie King was sentenced on Tuesday by a federal judge to two years probation and restitution.

She admitted to using her job at the casino to create a fake slot machine jackpot, which she then cashed in for herself.

Federal court documents show she stole at least $3,350 before she was caught.

King avoided prison time by pleading guilty to one of the two counts she was facing.
