Police said Thursday that two officers carrying out routine checks at an arcade in the western city of Bochum, Germany, late last week discovered that a man playing a slot machine faced an arrest warrant.

He had been ordered to pay a €710 (US$910) fine or go to prison for 71 days after resisting police during a previous incident.

Police say that as officers informed the man that he faced arrest, the slot machine started to flash and the beaming 37-year-old won a jackpot of €1,000 (about US$1,300).

The man paid his fine on the spot — in cash.
