Roulette Player May Spend Life in Jail 30.12.2012

Roulette News

Gambling can provide players with hours of entertainment and winning can trigger intense feelings of happiness and satisfaction. However, as one player at a William Hill shop demonstrated, losing can cause irreparable harm. That player, Mark Rutter, is now facing life in jail because of his reaction after a losing streak at a roulette machine.

Rutter, a 39 year old man from Liverpool, has admitted to committing robbery and assault in a William Hill shop while he was in Scotland visiting his girlfriend. Rutter visited the betting shop in Dalkeith, Midlothian and sat down to place wagers on one of the roulette gaming machines. After losing £200, Rutter lost his temper and the whole incident was caught on the shop’s CCTV camera. Rutter broke into an employee-only area and assaulted an employee named Ryan Drummond. Rutter demanded his money back and stabbed Drummond in the neck twice with a knife.

In an attempt to get his money back, Rutter stole £200 in notes and coins from the employee-only area and then made a run for it. He was caught later as he was counting his stolen money while sitting on the side of a riverbank. Judge Lord Uist, the presiding judge over this case, has remanded Rutter into custody for the next couple of months and asked for background records on Rutter. He could face a life sentence for his crime.

This story reminds us all that when gambling we need to keep our emotions in check and only gamble responsibly.
