FONTANIVA VILLAGE, ITALY (CNN FOX NEWS) - It's not easy getting revenge on a slot machine that's eaten your gambling money.

But one man in Italy found an unusual way to settle the score, with an axe.

The forty-seven-year-old got his revenge by smashing a row of slot machines in the bar Madonnina near the city of Padua, after he reportedly lost about $6,500.

Footage shows him walking into the bar, swinging an axe as other customers, including a man in the midst of a game can be seen backing away.

After attacking the slots, he calmly walked out of the bar.

According to media reports, locals say the father-of-two is a regular at the bar and had heard him complaining that he had lost big cash in the last two weeks.
