Million-Dollar Winners Become Losers at Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City

Million-Dollar Winners Become Losers at Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City

Don’t bet against the house at the Golden Nugget casino in Atlantic City. If you do, make sure you shuffle the cards.

The Golden Nugget will be recovering $1.5 million that it lost to 14 gamblers three years ago due to house rules in New Jersey.

My9 New Jersey reported that problems took place during a mini-baccarat game at the casino in April 2012. The Golden Nugget bought decks of cards from a Kansas City manufacturer that were supposed to be pre-shuffled, but were not. The gamblers increased their bets from $10 to $5,000 after they learned this, and won 41 straight hands.

New Jersey Superior Court Judge Donna Taylor ruled that the mini-baccarat games violated the Casino Control Act. “The dealer did not pre-shuffle the cards immediately prior to the commencement of play, and the cards were not pre-shuffled in accordance with any regulation," Taylor wrote, according to an Associated Press report on NJ.com.
