Each year approximately $22.5 million in slot machine winning tickets goes unclaimed by gamblers who fail to cash out on leaving Nevada casinos.
Failure to claim the slot winnings does not terminate the casino's obligation to make the payout. The state Gaming Commission now requires that casinos retain and track expired slot vouchers.
Effective July 1, 2011, 75% of that unclaimed money – $17 million – will be made available for claim. This is true even if the winning vouchers have an expiration date.
