THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, can you believe this alcoholic? This California man who lost $500,000 at blackjack and pai gow is suing a new Las Vegas casino, alleging he was too drunk to be allowed to gamble over a 17-hour period just before Super Bowl weekend. Mark A. Johnston of Ventura, California, is claiming he shouldn’t have to pay the Downtown Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino the $500,000 debt because employees served him so much alcohol that he suffered a blackout and was unable to remember the losses or even his gambling, the lawsuit alleges. That is no excuse to not pay your debt, everyone is aware that you go into a casino to drink and gamble, so I hope he doesn’t win a penny.
If he wins this lawsuit all of Las Vegas will have to shut down. Nobody gambles sober and if they do they have personal problems.- nik
