Casino News: Problem gambler needs to take responsibility over his gambling problem

Problem gambler needs to take responsibility over his gambling problem

 December 8, 2009, 12:46 pm (8 years ago)
In Melbourne, Australia this week the case of Harry Kakavas is making a buzz in the casino industry. Harry Kakavas, a property developer who claimed that the Melbourne Crown Casino took advantage of his gambling problem and caused him to end up loosing $30 million from 2005 to 2006.

Apparently, his efforts to collect back his losses by accusing the casino were crashed when Justice David Harper of the Victorian Supreme Court concluded that the casino did not take advantage of Kakavas who wagered A$1.5 billion throughout the period, losing a total of A$30 million throughout 15 months of obsessive gambling.

The judge noted that even though the casino had offered Kakavas incentives, these were not something extraordinary that forced the player to wager more than he could, nor misled his judgment on responsible gambling.
