Mark Johnston, Downtown Grand casino lawsuit: Gambler claims he was too drunk to wager

Says resort should not have let him gamble

(KSNV) The Downtown Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada has been open for just a few months, but it is already facing a lawsuit.

Mark Johnston says the resort cheated him out of $500,000, which he lost gambling during Super Bowl weekend.

Johnston, who says he had too much to drink before wagering that money, says the resort should not have let him gamble.

According to KSNV , gaming regulations stipulate a casino can be disciplined for allowing a visibly drunk person to gamble.

Johnston told the station that while he doesn't expect any sympathy from others, he still feels wronged.
