Poker Tournament Refund Occurs After Fake Chips Scandal

The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is situated in New Jersey. A strange incident occurred there recently. A man who participated in a poker tournament used oodles of fake chips which he had somehow smuggled into the gambling arena. 

Later on when he feared getting caught, he flushed the dubious chips in his hotel room toilet. However, his very action caused his capture by the authorities. The chips blocked the rest of the drainpipes in the hotel’s plumbing and water started leaking from the roofs of the other rooms. 

After complaints the matter was investigated and the culprit was nabbed and the clogging chips were recovered. Over 2100 individuals who participated in the event will get a full refund. $1.7 million will get redistributed in lieu of the prize money. 

No foul play was involved on the hotel’s part. The whole scam was masterminded by Christian Lusardi, a man who was then put under arrest and charged with $300,000 bail. He had discarded faux chips worth $2.7 million in the commode of his hotel room. 

The poker tournament was immediately called off after knowledge of this cheating mishap was communicated to the owners. Plans are underway to foolproof the hotel and casino’s gambling facilities so that such an event does not occur in the future. 

Even the $60 entry fee that each one of the players had paid for playing poker tournament was reimbursed back to them. The blunder thanks to a fraudster among the legal gamblers has cost the establishment a lot. 

They are ready to implant UV sensors that will not allow any ersatz chips to enter into the casino’s circulation of poker chips in the future. Lusardi meanwhile faces criminal charges as a big fat fake and fraudulent mind of the highest order.
