Casino News: Obsessive gambler attempts to cancel obligations to casinos

Obsessive gambler attempts to cancel obligations to casinos

 February 16, 2010, 9:21 am (8 years ago)
Australian self-admitted obsessive gambler Harry Kakavas has lost a further challenge to cancel his responsibilities to casinos with the excuse that he is a problem gambler.

The high rolling gambler has now lost additional courtroom conflict, this case in the Australian region of Victoria. He was ordered to pay a Bahamas-based land casino US$ 1 million.

Justice Jennifer Davies heard proof that Kakavas was granted a $US 1 million line of credit when he came to the Paradise Island Casino’s baccarat tables in November 2006. He lost everything throughout 5 hours of his playing.

The casino accused him in the Victorian Supreme Court of not paying the money he owes plus interest. Kakavas fought back that the casino was aware of the fact that he suffered from the addiction of problem gambling and took conscientiously advantage of his incapability to resist the strong need to gamble.
