According to the Sun report, the clip led many believe that the machine has been hit by the jackpotting bug which can make ATM machines spit out the money.
The Polish company that owns the ATM machine said that the machine started to pouring out money because a customer was withdrawing a large amount of money.
Owner and CEO OF Bitcoin Technologies, Adam Gramowski said to the Sun, “As you can see there is a bag in the front of ATM. However our ATMs support large transactions and it is fair to say that a larger, redesigned presenter would be a good solution. Our customer was not particularly careful, although the ATM should be redesigned to cope better with small denominations used in the UK.”
