More details to this question:
My husband's played on a machine and kept hitting jackpots until his total win was $9718.00. When he went to cash out the winnings, the employee unplugged the machine and reset it to erase earnings. Fortunately, we were so excited about his winnings and took a picture of the screen before the system was disconnected. Can we sure for th amount he should've collected?

Possibly - the question will be is it worth you spending money out of pocket to do so on legal fees and expenses and whether the entity that may owe you the funds is collectible.

Debtor and Creditor
Just because you owe money to another person, a bank, credit card company, landlord or another party doesn't mean you've signed away your legal rights. Federal and state debtor-creditor laws explain both the legal rights and obligations of debtors (people who owe money) and creditors (those who are owed money). If you're being hounded by collection agencies and debt collectors, talk to a debtor and creditor attorney who can help you enforce your legal rights while also working to explore debt relief options. Your lawyer can discuss the pros and cons of debt settlement, garnishment, personal bankruptcy and other possible solutions.
