  • Supreme Court judgment on the leading case in gaming law

    On 25 October 2017 the Supreme Court gave judgment in Ivey v Genting, now the leading case in gaming law and the law on dishonesty. The claimant, a world famous gambler, walked into Crockford’s casino in Mayfair and won nearly £8m at Punto Banco in just two sessions. There was no dispute about what he did: it was a card trick called edge-sorting: the only issue was whether it was cheating. The High Court, the Court of Appeal and now the Supreme Court decided that it was, setting a new standard of probity in gaming law and re-writing the law on dishonesty in the process. It has already been called “the most important case in a generation”. Crockford’s was represented by Christopher Pymont QC and Siward Atkins.
