Ritz Club Recovers £1m from Wealthy Gambling Addict

ritz-club-casino-london-75x75The wife of the foreign minister of Oman, Noora Abdullah Mahawish Al-Daher, spent £2m gambling at the Ritz Club in London on 3 April 2012 but only paid half of the money she owned. This led to a high court dispute and the judge ruled in favor of the Ritz. Now Mrs. Al-Daher has to pay back £1m to the casino even though she claimed that the casino had duty of care to stop her from gambling because it was apparent she has a gambling problem. Surprisingly, not only she gambled away £2m at the Ritz Club, but Mrs. Al-Daher also spent £3m gambling in Las Vegas two or three months after the incident.
