The Golden Nugget nj can inhale a little easier this week, after the Atlantic City casino had been exonerated for a game of mini-baccarat that sparked a lawsuit that is million-dollar. The overall game has now been deemed legal by the nj-new Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) following a two-year investigation.

And here’s the back story: In 2012, a group of customers at the Golden Nugget nj-new jersey casino spotted a deck that is new of at one baccarat table that appeared become unshuffled. The cards were being dealt in specific order that repeated itself every 15 fingers, letting them know with almost certainty that is complete cards were coming next. Upping their wagers to as much as $5,000, opportunistic gamblers managed to win 41 hands in a row and collectively bank $1.5 million.

The casino quickly put the kibosh on the fishy game and called State Police and the DGE, yet not before it had compensated out $500,000 of the $1.5 million.

It appears that the cards had been expected to arrive from the maker, Kansas-based business Gemaco, in a pre-shuffled state, via a machine that uses complex algorithms to guarantee that no two decks are the same. This specific deck, however, somehow slipped through the system.
