Poker star Phil Ivey won $11.5 million in a London casino in August, but the gambling club is refusing to pay him.
Ivey was playing a card game called Punto Banco, in which skill plays no role. The winner is determined strictly by luck of the draw.
In August, Ivey, 35, and a female companion played at the London casino Crockfords. Over the course of two days, Ivey won $11.5 million. When it was time to cash in, officials at the casino said Ivey's winnings would be transferred to his bank account.
But here we are in October, and Ivey says he still doesn't have his money. Why? The casino isn't talking, but many believe it is because Ivey's companion had a suspended membership with another casino.
