  美国新泽西州大西洋城的一家赌场日前对14位赌客提起诉讼,称赌客玩百家乐时用的八副牌未经洗牌,由此,其赢得的150多万美元应为非法所得。据悉,这14名赌客在玩百家乐时发现,牌桌上用的8副扑克牌一直都没有洗牌,而是在按相同的顺序不断循环出现。于是,他们将筹码从10美元提高到5000美元,然后连赢了41把。就在他们赢得的筹码越变越大时,赌场安保人员发现了异常并怀疑这些赌客有作弊行为,但他们无法判定赌客是如何操作的。最终,赌场只兑付了60万美元的筹码,并坚称这些赌客的赢钱行为对赌场不公。不过,14名赌客的代理律师则表示其当事人完全没有错,他指出,新泽西州没有任何一条法律规定因赌场工作人员没有洗牌而导致赌客赢钱是非法的。

  A US casino is suing 14 gamblers after eight card decks had not been shuffled properly, resulting in winnings of more than $1.5m.

  Golden Nugget Atlantic City Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, is refusing to pay the gamblers their winnings as it maintains the game was illegal.

  The 14 gamblers realized eight decks of playing cards had not been shuffled and were repeating their sequences. In light of this they increased their bets from $10 to $5,000, winning 41 consecutive hands of baccarat.

  As the group continued to win increasingly more substantial amounts of money casino security began to suspect the individuals of cheating.

  Security teams arrived, but were unable to establish how the wins were being achieved.

  The casino eventually paid out just under $600,000 but refused to cash $977,000, which remain in chips.

  The casino maintains that state gambling regulations require all casino games to be fair – to both sides.

  The lawsuit against the gamblers maintains that although both sides began the game thinking it was balanced, the gamblers consecutive wins, and the increasing amount they had bet, indicates knowledge that the game was skewed against the casino.

  However, Benjamin Dash, a lawyer representing the gamblers, has countered his clients did nothing wrong therefore still deserve to be paid the remainder of their winnings.

  He said his clients "were denied their winnings. There is absolutely no law in New Jersey that would permit the Golden Nugget to declare the game illegal because it failed to provide shuffled cards."

  This is not the first case of unshuffled cards to happen in Atlantic City.

  In December the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, also in Atlanta, failed to preshuffled their cards, using the decks of cards for over three hours before it uncovered its mistake. The incident resulted in a $91,000 fine for the casino.
