Drunk Gambler Sues Vegas Casino for $500,000 Lost


Downtown Grand Las VegasA fairly new Las Vegas casino called the Downtown Grand, open just a few months, is being sued by one of its patrons who claims the casino cheated him out of $500,000, which he lost during Super Bowl weekend.

Mark Johnston says he had too much to drink before wagering that money and that the resort should not have let him gamble.

“I feel like they picked my pockets,” he said. “I feel like they took a drunk guy . . . like a drunk guy walking down the street, and you reach in his pockets and grab all his money.”

According to the Nevada gaming regulations, a casino can be disciplined for allowing a visibly drunk person to gamble.
