As somebody has rightly said that if you want to earn big time, it is better to open a casino than be a poker player. If you are playing, you may either win or lose and the amount may be small or big. But if you are the owner of the casino, you will surely win, earning a large sum of money. Poker will no longer be a game of chance for you if you are the owner of the casino, it will be a win-win situation for you all through the end. This is the reason why so many successful poker players have invested their money in the casino business.
In a historic case, the New Jersey administration fined the Caesars Entertainment Corp. with a whooping amount of $225,000 for not stopping a customer from losing large amount of money on the tables. This case has seen the headlines for some time now with allegations to and fro from both the sides. Terrance Watanabe, a very rich person who is addicted to gambling, especially poker, alleged that the casino him with drugs and alcohol and let him lose tons of money at the tables. In fact he was provided with royalty treatment just so he could lose his fortune over the tables.
The casino made major changes to accommodate the client and ensure that he had the best time of his life. Keeping him entertained was a strategy to make him stay at the tables and ensure that the casino made a fortune out of it. Even the staff was shuffled if they were not to the liking of the client. All these facilities just so he could keep losing at the tables. The fight went to the court and then the settlement came in July 2010 wherein both the parties decided to reclaim the charges and Watanabe paid $100,000 against the debt of $14.7 million which he owned to the casino in the end. But out of this whole mess, the casino owners came out winners and their winning amount cannot even be counted.
