Gambler Claims Online Casino BetMGM Glitches Robbed His Winnings, Fueled Addiction

A New York man who said he has a gambling addiction has accused online casino operator BetMGM of plying him with free bets to keep him from reporting game glitches to regulators, according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday.

Sam A. Antar alleged that BetMGM’s online blackjack and other games repeatedly disconnected from BetMGM’s servers, often while he had favorable hands, which wiped out potential winnings, according to the lawsuit. His winnings at times weren’t available to him until he deposited more money into his account, further fueling his compulsive gambling that included more than $29 million in bets in nine months, the lawsuit said.
