MADISON -- A man who won the jackpot on a Ho-Chunk slot machine Thursday, punched and shattered the glass display after being unhappy with the payout. 

WISC-TV reports Madison paramedics were called to Ho-Chunk after the man got mad that his payout wasn’t very large and slammed the slot machine, breaking the glass display and sending shards of glass toward the person next to him.

Paramedics met with the other person, who initially thought they had glass in their eye, but eventually reported no injuries, officials said.

The man who broke the slot machine asked to be treated for glass in his hand, according to the release. Paramedics noted a small scratch that was not bleeding and did not need stitches, but the man requested to be taken to the hospital.
