When it comes to gambling, it's important to remember that the house always wins. Er, or does it?
Recently, UFC President Dana White proved otherwise during a three-month hot streak at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. About two years after getting banned from the Palms for winning a boatload (like, a literal boatload) of money playing table games, the Palms just banned him again after he won nearly $2 million between March 1 and May 21 of this year. The Palms was able to convince him to come back to their tables back in early March after he boycotted the hotel for 22 months. But they essentially had to ban him again last month by placing $5,000 limits on all of his bets, which is nothing compared to the $25,000-plus bets that he usually puts down at the tables.
"Casinos don't want to gamble anymore," he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "They're all owned by hedge funds and corporations. They want to stack the odds so much against you that you won't play. Realistically, there's only one place to play left in town. That's Caesars. They will let you play what you want to play. No messing around with limits."
Will Palms try and coax White back in a few months once he's cooled off? Probably. But for now, he's not going to be able to place any bets there, because he's beaten the house one too many times now.
