gamblers need to give back winnings !?!?

http://www.komonews.com/news/national/Judge-Casino-not-liable-for-15-million-gamblers-won-with-unshuffled-cards-263091251.html

facking judges. Some casino deals un-shuffled cards and the people that won have to give back their winnings? You've got to be kidding me. The players didn't do anything wrong, it wasn't their fault, even if they figured out the cards weren't shuffled.

That's fucked up. I wonder how much the judge gets as "donations"?

Fuck that....fuck that judge....its not like the casinos dont have lots of money. Phone Post 3.0

I would burn it first.

If you dont shuffle and lose thats on you.

If i hit on 19 when i meant to stay thats on me. 

So if I sucked at gambling I could use the same judge to give me my money back. Phone Post 3.0

I'm sure if I made mistakes in my gambling techniques the judge would return it.

Oh, and don't forget it's perfectly ethical for casino's to liquor you up with free drinks as they take your money.

Judges are as corrupt as politicians as far as i'm concerned.

So does the casino give back any money they made on won hands? Phone Post 3.0

That place is owned by Tilman Fertitta, cousin of those other Frittata's. It seemed what he did originally was fair which was to pay out the wins, but the gamblers wanted more money and wanted to sue for being illegally detained.

That Judge won money on that deal

Judge has to rule with the written legislation. If there is legislation showing that a deck has to be shuffled to be considered a legal bet, then it's not a legal bet and the bets have to be returned to the players and any winnings returned back to the casino.

He doesn't really have much of a choice.

They should have taken the money though. Quite often casinos will pay out money even if they don't legally have to because they are worried about bad PR, which is what looks like happened in this case. Their fault for being dumbasses and holding out for some big settlement in a wrongful detainment case. Can you even get very much money from a wrongful detainment case? Like what kind of damages would you suffer from being wrongfully detained? I wonder if they beat them up.

This. It's shitty, but it sounds like the gamblers got a little too greedy. If you have the answers to a test in school, you don't answer every single question correctly, you miss a few on purpose to avoid suspicion.
