Crown Casino poker machines not ‘deceptive’ court finds
According to an article on the ABC News website.
A former gambling addict who argued a popular poker machine was deceptive and misleading has lost her landmark court case against Melbourne’s Crown Casino and the game manufacturer.
Law firm Maurice Blackburn brought the case on behalf of Shonica Guy, whose gambling addiction lasted 14 years.
It argued the Dolphin Treasure machine, which is manufactured by Aristocrat and available to players at Crown, had been deceptively designed to give players the impression they had won, when they had in fact lost money.
