The first hearing in the Merlaku gambling case is schedule for January 10, A press conference was held in Innsbruck, Austria yesterday outlining the case against Casinos Austria.
For him, there is no grey area, no middle line: the machine gave him the win, so he should have his winnings. I will fight for this until my death, Merlaku told Austrian paper Heute.
He said the incident had left him with psychological problems and that losing such an enormous sum after winning it was an unacceptable outcome.
Gaming operators are said to be watching the case with baited breath. Merkaku told Austrian newspaper Heute in August: "When I won I was ecstatic and of course I relied upon it being a real jackpot which it was.
I saw it on the screen. They took me for a fool which I am not. I've played in many casinos and I know the way the cookie crumbles.
Instead of accepting the offer, Merlaku decided to sue the casino. Interestingly, in their defense, casino officials note that Austrian law forbids jackpots of more than two million euros, according to the Mail.
But Gizmodo wonders how the casino can be so sure that the problem was a software error:. The owners say it's a software glitch, but wouldn't it be possible the mistake was on the display instead of the result?
Perhaps the rolling mechanism got jammed and the machine correctly called the jackpot while showing an erroneous symbol. From ecstasy to agony: When Mr Merlaku made his claim the operators of the casino immediately blamed a glitch in the fruit machine.
Its UK subsidiary holds a UK gaming operators licence. It also operates casinos in Cairns and Canberra, Australia, and elsewhere.
The first hearing in the case is scheduled for January 10 next year. Lawsuit: The gambler's legal team will argue that because the machine told him he had won he is therefore justified in pursuing a claim.
Mr Merlaku, a Kosovar-Albanian who moved to Switzerland at the time of the Balkans wars, said in an Austrian television interview that the greatest moment of his life quickly turned into the worst.
He added: 'The jackpot came up loud and clear. There was music and the sum I had won - nearly 43 million euros - was displayed on a screen.
Mr Merlaku even used his mobile phone to film footage of the winning noise and screen. However, this could be used against him in court because the video shows he only had four of the five symbols in a line; in Austria there must be five matches.
His lawyers will argue that because the machine told him he had won and therefore is justified in pursuing a claim. The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline.
