There have been several cases recently of gamers suing casinos
for losses that they have suffered.
I tend to side with the casinos in these cases, however, some allegations from this one include plying the customer with alcohol and pills, and even waking him up to gamble more after he had passed out at the table!
Probably just lawyer talk, but what duty do the casinos have to protect gambling addicts from themselves?
In this CNN story
, the plaintiff wagered nearly a billion dollars in one year, losing around 127 million. Hard to tell a customer like that "no".
