Palms Casino Bans UFC President After Big Blackjack Win

palmshotelvegas4399854890920878Dana White, the President of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, has been banned from the Las Vegas Palms after he won about $2 million at the blackjack tables. According to White the casino’s only reason for banning him was the fact that he was winning too much money.

Not a first

It was not the first time White ran into trouble after winning at the casino, several weeks ago the new management of the Palms Casino already notified White that his limit per hand was reduced from $25,000 per hand to $5,000 per hand. Apparently that did not stop the casino from losing more money to the UFC boss however, and his ban from the blackjack tables followed last week.

Winning prohibited

In the meantime, the ban has once again led to an increasing amount of criticism on the way casinos handle winning gamblers. More and more people in the gambling world feel casinos are just banning winning players from playing their favorite games without any reason to actually do so. In most cases there is no proof at all of foul play and it seems like casinos only want to welcome losing gamblers. Although that does make sense from the casino’s point of view, banning the winning ones is just going to enhance their image as sore losers.
