Automated Craps Machine at Isle Casino Overcharges Gamblers

Isle Casino, a popular gambler’s destination in Pompano Beach, has been targeted by a class action lawsuit that claims the casino was overcharging customers who used one particular automated craps machine. According to the machine’s terms of use, it and the casino would keep 5% of every bet placed, win or lose. But in light of new information, it appears the machine would take 10% on certain bets, especially those placed on the 4 or 10 spots. Some percentages were also allegedly taken off the amount of the winnings, instead of the bet amount.

The machine was installed back in 2012. There is no evidence known at this point to suggest that the alleged overcharging is a new problem, but instead, it may be one that began the very first time the machine was used. As the class action lawsuit claims, throughout the course of the last four years, the machine could have easily taken hundreds of thousands of dollars illegitimately from gamblers.

Attorney Cristina M. Pierson of Kelley/Uustal is working on the class action lawsuit, which has been filed on behalf of several Isle Casino Fan Club members. Due to the membership status of the plaintiffs, there is ample information to show how often each of them used that particular machine, including bet amounts. This data could serve as grounds for determining how much compensation should be awarded, either through a settlement or jury verdict. The defendants in the case are Isle of Capri Casino, Inc., and the machine’s manufacturer, Interblock USA, LLC.

For more information regarding this ongoing class-action lawsuit, Local 10 News, an ABC affiliate, produced a story piece recently, which can be seen below. It features Attorney Pierson in an interview.
