Gambling addict takes casino to court

A 44-year-old man from Utrecht is suing Holland Casino for €2m – the amount he says he got from his rich Turkish family and lost gambling, the AD reports on Thursday.

Ali Sacihan says the state-owned gambling organisation knew of his addiction and should have given him a life-long ban.
The government justifies the fact that Holland Casino has a monopoly on the gambling market by arguing this is the best way to combat gambling addiction.
