A High Court judge has ruled in favour of the owners of a London casino who refused to pay £7.7m in winnings to top card player Phil Ivey.
Mr Ivey brought the case against Genting Casinos after he won the money during a round of the card game Punto Blanco - a version of Baccarat - in August 2012.
After four sessions he was told that his £7.7m winnings would be wired to him, but when he got back to the United States he found he had only had his original stake money of £1m returned.
The casino said Mr Ivey had used a technique called "edge-sorting" to give himself an unfair advantage.
They argued that Mr Ivey's conduct defeated the premise of the game and therefore meant there was no contract between Ivey and the casino.
