Don't Win A $55 Million Jackpot In Saigon?

Wednesday, February 23, 2011


A Vietnamese American man is currently in the middle of a bitter lawsuit after allegedly winning US$55.5 million at a Ho Chi Minh City casino, which then subsequently refused to pay out the staggering amount.

On October 25th, 2009, Ly Sam was playing the Landlord Game slot at the Sheraton Saigon Hotel’s Palazzo Club, when the machine indicated he had won the incredible $55.5 million cash prize [...]

Consequently, in what has now become the biggest ever lawsuit claim in Vietnamese history, Ly Sam is currently in the process of suing Dai Duong for the huge $55.5 million jackpot. Commenting on the case, his lawyer Tran Cong Ly Tao said:

“Dai Duong Joint Venture must pay the money. Players pay money to play and so when a player wins, the game operator must pay the winner…Even the Penal Code can be based on to charge the game operator with abusing trust to appropriate assets.”
