Remember the policy set up in Iowa to ban those with addiction problems from casinos? The Des Moines Register has a fascinating story about a man who is suing over $10,000 that he won at a casino, only to be recognized as a banned gambler and have his winnings confiscated.
A jury was not convinced. The casino has added the money to the more than $330,000 taken from "trespassing" gamblers for a fund to treat gambling addiction.
"Prairie Meadows doesn't benefit from this," said Tom Flynn, a Prairie Meadows attorney. "It goes to the gambler's treatment fund. It's not like we take your money and say, 'Gotcha!' "
