Banned gambler has to give up jackpot

4 years ago May 26, 2010 May 26, 2010 Wednesday, May 26 2010 Wednesday, May 26, 2010 12:03:09 PM EDT in News

Some guys have all the luck -- but a Pennsylvania man isn't one of them.

The man has to give up a two-grand jackpot won playing a slot machine.

State police say the man had previously banned himself from casinos under a program for problem gamblers.

He'll also be charged with trespassing.

State troopers haven't named the 55-year-old Waterford Township man.

He won the jackpot Friday at Erie's Presque Isle Downs and Casino.

Under the program, the forfeited money goes to a compulsive gambler treatment fund.
