Dana White, the UFC President, has been banned (again) from gambling at the Palms Casino in Vegas because he won too much money. From the Review-Journal’s Norm Clarke:
When he returned to the Palms tables, White said, he “beat them for (nearly $2 million), and they asked me not to play anymore.”
He was informed by new management at the Palms about May 21 that his limit was being reduced from $25,000 a hand to $5,000.
White has a net worth of an estimated few hundred million, and is a prodigous gambler. He’s talked about walking out of casinos with black garbage bags full of millions of winnings. Betting $50k on one blackjack hand is no big deal to White.
Also, it sounds like gambling big money in Vegas sucks now:
“Casinos don’t want to gamble anymore,” White said. “They’re all owned by hedge funds and corporations. They want to stack the odds so much against you that 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.”
