American Poker Player Sues London Casino 13.05.2013

Roulette News

Phil Ivey, an American poker player who visited the Crockford Casino in London’s Mayfair last August and claims to have won millions of dollars which the casino is refusing to hand over, is now suing the casino for a total of £7.8 million.

The 36-year old player claims to have won the money completely fairly by playing the popular card came Punto Banco at the casino’s tables, and that he received a receipt for his unpaid winnings. It has not been clarified exactly why the winnings have not been paid to Ivey, but further details will undoubtedly become clearer as the suit proceeds.

Ivey has been a loyal player at the casino over the course of the past few years and claims to both have lost and won large sums of money, but that he has always fulfilled his responsibilities and liabilities whenever he has lost. He claims to therefore be very disappointed in the casino for not fulfilling its obligation to pay out the sum of £7.8 million which he won in August 2012. The casino has not commented elaborately on the subject, but its owner has claimed that the casino will be defending the claim “vigorously”. Ivey has expressed “great regret” at being forced to take legal action against the private member’s club, but has made it clear that he has no other choice.

In any case, Ivey’s claims certainly seem credible considering his history within the gambling world. At the ripe age of 36, he already holds 9 world series of poker championship bracelets. He has won £10.3 million in poker tournaments.
