Someone is going to zoom in on the face, with the caption 'Gambler'.
what a terrible, selfish waste.
You asked for it.
Get $1.5 Million and you...gamble with it?
This man gets the opportunity that everyone wants, and he trys to get more?
What a greedy fuck.
I remember when I got two cokes from a vending machine instead of one, I guess that's as close I'll get to feeling like this man.
I wonder what he'd do if he ever won the jackpot and won that amount, just gamble it away?
15 months for $1.5 million? That doesn't sound *too* bad for the guy.
Somebody gambles the banks money and gets jail time. Interesting reversal.
I'm curious as to how a single ATM was stocked with over $1.5 million.
If I'd gotten that much out of one, the first two things I would've done was buy a house and a DeLorean.
For some reason it's hard to comprehend why this is illegal. It's the ATM's fault, and no one else would not do the same
what if he won more, would he only have had to give back the 1.5?
Quite frankly I would've just told the administrator of the ATM that it broke and gave them the money back. Not worth the risk.
"DON'T MISS: How one man moved to the wilderness and turned his back on money >"
fuck this guy i wanna read about a mountain man
Maybe he was trying to launder it in some way?
I don't think it's fair on the guy to punish him for this. It's the banks fault if they can't make sure their ATM's work. If I went to withdraw money from MY account, and I could withdraw mass amounts of money that I didn't have, I would.
If he were smart he would have never gambled away with it. Just spend it on more reasonable stuff
I wonder if he took out a smaller, more believable amount he could've gotten away with the bank just thinking it's a glitch.
only 15 months in prison for effectively robbing a bank?
