But this story is total crap.
Two men who won casino jackpots worth more than $77,000 are suing B.C. Lottery Corp., seeking to be paid the money and disputing the corporation's "if you win, you lose" policy.
Hamidreza Haghdust won jackpots totalling about $35,000 in 2009 and 2010, while Michael Lee won jackpots worth $42,484.
BCLC says the men can't claim the money because they participated in BCLC's Voluntary Self-Exclusion program, so their winnings are "illegal."
The program is designed for people who feel it is in their best interests not to participate in gambling for a specified period of time.
The rules require participants to sign a form that says if selfexcluded parties enter a casino to gamble and lose, they lose their bets, and if they win, they cannot claim the prize money.
The plaintiffs claim that BCLC's policy is unfair because it amounts to "if you lose, you lose, and if you win, you lose too."
And they're not alone. The plaintiffs' lawyer, Mark Mounteer, said Thursday that Haghdust and Lee are seeking to have their lawsuit certified as a class action.
So if they let the guy in then all his transactions in the casino should be null and void. He should be able to go to the door after he loses and say I want all the money I just lost back.
I bet if he was a known cheater he'd never be let in.
