Baccarat Overpayment Incident Finally OverAn incident that happened at the Harrah’s Casino in Reno, Nevada back in 2008 has now finally come to an end. William H. Conner was arrested for an overpayment incident and over the past few years, the incident has reached the level of court preceding and now has finally come to an end.
Conner was visiting the casino in the summer of 2008 when he told a pit boss at the casino that he was overpaid. Conner had been paid $2,850 for a bet which should have only been worth $1,900. This meant the overpayment was for $950.
The casino demanded that Conner pay the $950 but he would not pay the amount back since the casino would not show him the video evidence. The manager admitted at a later date that the video footage would know show anything conclusive.
Conner explained how the situation went down as follows: “The pit boss was screaming ‘we’ve got it on camera’ and made this very verbal public attack on me..They said they had my face on camera, but it turns out the camera shows nothing!”
Conner refused to pay the amount and the matter was then taken to the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Conner was then arrested and then he finally repaid the money. Conner stated he repaid the money under duress after he was arrested and threatened with prison time as well as emotionally threatened.
Conner then tried to sue Harrah’s and two gaming agents over the incident but just the past week, a federal judge in Reno overturned the suit by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
