Guest Posted February 13, 2015 Report Share Posted February 13, 2015 (edited) So the 7AM news this 2/13/15 morning contained the item that this infamous A.C. court case has been settled in favor of the casino. The players were required to return 1.5 million in winnings from a Baccarat shoe.It seems that somehow boxed card order cards were entered into the dealer shoe with no shuffle.It was easy for the players to win since the cards were coming out of the dealer shoe in boxed card order and therefore 100% predictable.Origionally the casinos blamed the loss on a conspiracy between the dealer and the players.But they didn't pursue this avenue in court. Perhaps because it made no sense unless the pit boss and the eye in the sky were also in on the conspiracy.That's getting a little too far fetched.Instead the casino took the tact that they had ordered preshuffled cards from the card manufacturer but received regular boxed card order cards.Anybody the least bet familiar with casino gambling would have realized this made no sense either.Boxed card order cards come to the table in 8 sealed boxes. Only preshuffled cards come to the table in a sealed 8 deck preshuffled bundle.Any dealer and any pit boss would have immediately seen that the cards were in boxed card order and stopped the game long before the casino had lost 1.5 million dollars.The fact that the players took advantage of the known card order is certainly not a crime. What else were they to do? Ignore it?So maybe it was the card manufacturer's fault but I seriously doubt that. Even in the highly unlikely event that the manufacturer made somehow made a huge error the dealer and pit boss and cameras should have spotted the error immediately just as the players did.But the court did not blame the card manufacturer.The court did not blame the casino for gross negligence.The court blamed the whole fiasco on the players and made them return their winnings.What is the lesson here?We aren't only up against the casino. We are up against the state government and the court system as well. Edited February 13, 2015 by Guest Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
