World famous professional poker player Phil Ivey is going ahead with a lawsuit against London-based Crockfords Casino for £7.8 million in winnings which he claims are being unlawfully withheld from him. In the claim presented at the High Court in London, Ivey says he won the amount playing Punto Banco at Crockfords late August of last year. The casino, instead of paying him his winnings, only gave him a receipt for the full amount which according to Ivey "left me no alternative but to proceed with legal action". Genting Casinos, the owner company of Crockfords, has stated they would defend the claim vigorously.
