Isle Casino, a popular gambler’s destination in Pompano Beach, has
been targeted by a class action lawsuit that claims the casino was overcharging
customers who used one particular automated craps machine. According to
bet placed, win or lose. But in light of new information, it appears the
machine would take 10% on certain bets, especially those placed on the
4 or 10 spots. Some percentages were also allegedly taken off the winnings
amount, instead of the bet amount.
The machine was installed back in 2012. There is no evidence known at this
point to suggest that the alleged overcharging is a new problem, but instead
it may be one that began the very first time the machine was used. As
the class action lawsuit claims, throughout the course of the last four
years, the machine could have easily taken hundreds of thousands of dollars
illegitimately from gamblers.
Attorney Cristina M. Pierson of Kelley/Uustal is working on the class action lawsuit, which has been
filed on behalf of several Isle Casino Fan Club members. Due to the membership
status of the plaintiffs, there is ample information to show how often
each of them used that particular machine, including bet amounts. This
data could serve as grounds for determining how much compensation should
be awarded, either through a settlement or jury verdict. The defendants
in the case are Isle of Capri Casino, Inc., and the machine’s manufacturer,
Interblock USA, LLC.

Local 10 News, an
ABC affiliate, produced a story piece recently, which can be seen below. It
