Atlantic City Casino Sued Over Promotion Rules
Two disgruntled patrons of the Revel Casino have filed a lawsuit against the Atlantic City gaming establishment, following a recent slots promotion. The two gamblers – Megan Boyd and Rakeen Henderson – claim that the promotion was deceiving and the terms not clear enough. The companies named in the suit were Revel Entertainment Group and Chatham Asset Management.
The promotion in question was run during the summer and was accompanied by an ad campaign stating “Gamblers Wanted”. Players were offered a promise to pay back any losses over $100 that they incurred on slot games during the month of July. The casino had been struggling since opening last year and following the promotion it reported its first ever profitable week.
However, despite the apparent success of the promotion, players appear to have been upset over the way in which the casino plans to refund the losses and the fact that these terms were listed were in fine print which has been described as “virtually illegible”. The terms that have caused the upset were that the refunds would be paid out at 5% a week over 20 weeks and would take the form of free play credits rather than straight cash.
While it could of course be argued that it is a player’s responsibility to fully read the terms and conditions of any promotion, the players behind the suit believe that the promotion was intentionally deceptive. Neither of the companies named as the defendants have yet commented on the matter.
