    An Argentine woman came close to winning $11.5 million on Monday in a bingo game in the town of Lomas del Mirador. It is west of Buenos Aires. But the bingo hall refused to pay up.

    “Manual payment 35 663 093.02 pesos,” the woman saw this in white letters on a red screen before her. The amount was plus/minus $11.5 million and the picture – which is not quite-so-lucky winner claims is proof of the prize – was repeatedly shown on Argentine television.

    However, the bingo management refused to pay, alleging that there was a mistake since the machine couldn’t deliver such a high amount of money. When she heard all the excuses, she literally “hugged” the machine and refused to leave the premises until she was paid in full.

    After a few hours, the private bingo company offered to pay $10,500 and suggested that the woman file a formal complaint before the Provincial Lottery that supervises the games parlor. The winner’s husband told local television that the couple have hired lawyers to look into the case and vowed to press charges.
