$43m slot machine win a 'mistake', says casino

An American woman who thought she had won $43m (£28m) on a slot machine has been told the win was a mistake.

The Fortune Valley Casino in Central City, Colorado, told Louise Chavez the machine had "malfunctioned" and it is now unlikely she'll see a penny of the dream jackpot.

Louise Chavez, and Don Burmania from the Colorado Division of Gaming, spoke to ABC news.
