If you ever needed one more reason why it is better to attend USA online casinos than it is to go to their land based equivalents, here is one right off the bat: a Mississippi casino has been called guilty this week for causing the death by drinking of a gambler who was playing with them. A $75 million lawsuit now stands to make them pay for their negligence.
The gambler, a man named Bryan Lee Glenn, was only thirty years old when he died back in August 2009, whilst staying in his hotel room at the IP Casino Resort and Spa in Biloxi, Miss. He had already taken several painkillers – including Percocet, morphine, and antipsychotic medication – that night, as a result of a traumatic four wheeler accident in 2004 that left him with a brain injury. His situation was exacerbated when he lost all of his worldly possessions in Hurricane Katrina a year later, and when a further motor accident in 2007 left him with back injuries. He is reported to have attempted suicide just a few days before his accident, revealing a fragile mental state and a perhaps understandable self-destructive course.
Though his friends and family repeatedly begged casino staff to stop serving him that night and continually tried to get him to leave the casino for his own safety after he became falling down drunk, they were thwarted at every turn by the greedy casino employees. A pit boss is alleged to have told Glenn’s brother that he was “old enough to make his own decisions” and therefore would not be denied access to alcohol. When the family finally managed to convince Glenn that he needed to leave, his blackjack dealer pointed out that he still had chips on the table and asked him, “Aren’t you going to come back and play?” This greed and pushiness is something that you are thankfully far away from at home.
Going into gambling pilled up and drunk is certainly nothow to get started on gaining the big jackpots, but some people may perhaps find it a bit of a release, similar to the way that others go out dancing or eat a kebab. You need to look after yourself and keep yourself as safe as possible, so staying at home is a great idea – particularly when you realise that had Glenn not been in the casino, it is likely that he would not have drunk quite so much nor indeed ended up dead on that fateful night.
