In an instant she was a multi-millionaire.

"I was in shock," she told INSIDE EDITION of winning what she thought was millions. "I was excited. I was in shock."  

But those dreams were dashed when the staff at The Lucky Eagle Casino in Washington State told her there had been a malfunction with the slot machine.

Instead of the millions, she got a measly $80.35.

"They came to me and said: 'We have to shut off the machine.' Then I was asking: 'What about the prize?' They said: 'There is no prize.' It was horrible," she told IE.
