A billionaire lost 2 million British Pounds playing roulette. The sad thing is not even the sum that won't probably beggar the Swiss national, but the fact that he is a hard gambling addict.

The Ritz Club is suing Safa Abdulla Al-Geabury for the money he owes the casino plus £200,000 interest.

At the same time, the unfortunate gambler is suing Mayfair casino for £5.4million to cover the losses he carried over four years playing at the establishment. He is claiming that the casino bosses were aware of his hopeless addiction and never stopped him.

In 2009 Mr Al-Geabury, 52, even signed self-exclusion forms banning himself from London casinos including the Ritz. That was his attempt to fight the addiction. However, the casino has let him back in after a few months and he started gambling again. He says that the casino management chased him to lure him back to the games. Mr Al-Geaubury claims that he surrendered only after he was invited to watch Arsenal play Bayern Munich at the Emirates Stadium in London last February.

After the game, he got invited to the casino even though he tried to say no and explained the refusal by telling the man he was a problem gambler.

The sad story continues and the court hearings will go on until one of the sides will get it's satisfaction.
