Terry Watanabe When Dallas moves to Vegas: $112 million loss by Terry Watanabe
As a general rule we talk to you in our columns about tournaments and their winners, rarely losers. But, the next story, worthy of a good Hollywood script, concerns one of the biggest players in the world.
At 52, Terry Watanabe is the heir to a large company, The Oriental Trading Co, and enjoys a comfortable fortune. Which makes him one of those players for whom the casinos make golden bridges: private plane, presidential suites and impressive line of credit, in order to keep them playing as long as possible.
Watanabe fulfilled his contract by losing nearly $112 million, including a bad check for $15 million in an attempt to recoup. The casino therefore accuses him of theft and retaliates by suing Harrah’s, owner of Caesar’s Palace. Watanabe accuses him of drugging him, with prescription drugs, and getting him drunk to hold him longer and increase his losses.
It may be on gambling addiction that Watanabe will be able to get out of it, since in Nevada, it is forbidden to knowingly allow people in a state of addiction to gamble.
