Alabama man sues over tribe's refusal to pay jackpot

A man is suing an Alabama Indian tribe over what he claims is its refusal to pay a more than $1 million jackpot he won at a casino near Montgomery.
Lee County resident Jerry Rape is suing the Poarch Band of Creek Indians over the dispute.
Rape claims that lights flashed and sirens went off at Creek Casino Montgomery when he won more than $1 million on a 25 cent bet in November 2010. He says workers congratulated him, and one told him not to let the tribe cheat him out of the money.
The suit claims the tribe later claimed the slot machine had malfunctioned, and it refused to pay the jackpot.
Tribal officials declined comment on the lawsuit.
