Cherry Hill, New Jersey resident William Vespe and Philadelphian Anthony Mattia have filed a suit against the Sugarhouse Casino in Philadelphia claiming they were cheated due to unfair decks of playing cards and busted shuffling machines.  Together they lost a combined $250,870.

In their complaint, they claim the casino failed to provide ”a fair wagering environment and a level playing field for wagering”.  The two men accuse the casino of breach of contract, negligence, breach of good faith and fair dealing, unjust enrichment, fraud, and conspiracy to commit fraud.

The SugarHouse was previously fined $100K by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board for using  “illegitimate decks" of playing cards back between the period May 2017 and January 2018.  It is during this time frame that Vespe and Mattia claim they lost the money in question.

SugarHouse Casino had previously been fined $32,500 as a result of a “flip” involving poker pro Doug Polk after filming for a “Poker Night in America” episode on March 19, 2017.

Polk and real estate CEO Jeremy Kaufman had agreed to put up $42,000 for the best five-card hand in ten-card stud poker.  Each participant was to get ten cards apiece with the highest five-card hand the winner.

Because the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has not approved ten-card stud, it was considered a violation of gaming regulations.
