Atlantic Lottery Corp lawsuit News

Judge of a Newfoundland - ST. JOHN'S, N.L. has certified a class action lawsuit against the Atlantic Lottery Corporation that alleges VLT line games are designed to deceive players.

The class action involves an estimated 30,000 players of line games on video lottery terminals in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Doug Babstock of St. John's, one of the representative plaintiffs said:

"These games have been cheating Newfoundlanders for many years".
"The Atlantic Lottery Corporation deceptively generates tens of millions of dollars from VLTs every year"

 said Ches Crosbie, a lawyer for the plaintiffs. Also, he saidin an interview:

"The line games lead a person to believe they are getting closer and closer to a win, except a win doesn't happen. It's a deceptive feature and has nothing to do with how the internal programming actually dictates how the game is going to end up".

Atlantic Lottery said Wednesday it plans to appeal the certification. Carla Bourque Atlantic Lottery VLTs lawyer says the allegations without thorough. She said:

"We stand behind all of our products, with more than 10 responsible gambling features available on all Atlantic Lottery's regulated Video Lottery Terminals, and additional responsible gaming tools available at all VL sites".

In a 52-page decision, Justice Alphonsus Faour of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador said he is persuaded that a class action is a workable way of dealing with the case.

Ches Crosbie said, that Atlantic Lottery Corporation leads to all sorts of social upheavals, divorce, bankruptcy and family breakdown.
