The Story

Robert Anthony Lay, a former employee of the now-defunct Legendz Sports online sportsbook, is suing Caesars for fraud, negligent misrepresentation, and unfair and deceptive trade practices, leading with the complaint that Caesars willingly took thousands of pounds in rake from Lay when it suited them, and gave him no inclination that his previous ‘record’ was an issue.


What happened?

According to Lay’s lawyer, Caesar allowed the ex-Legendz Sports employee to compete in World Series of Poker Circuit events, win a seat into the Global Casino Championship, and then banned him after learning he was one of the 34 people and 23 companies arrested in April 2013 in connection with Legendz Sports. Lay served his time and, in January 2017, decided to put his vision board and gold-ring/bracelet conquest idea into motion.
