A few months ago, high roller and casino owner King’s Leon Tsoukernik filed a lawsuit against Facebook. Let us briefly recall how it all began.
An advertisement for King’s online casino appeared on Facebook, where all new players were promised $ 140 each. The banners used photographs of a real establishment in Rozvadov, as well as its brand colors.
In reality, King’s exists exclusively in a land-based version, and after detecting fraud, the institution’s lawyers repeatedly tried to contact Facebook, demanding that the advertisements be removed. But, according to Leon, no one reacted to their appeals, so the owner filed a lawsuit and intends to collect $ 24,000,000.
The social networking site is headquartered in Dublin and most of its claims are pending in Ireland. However, in this case, the Prague court ruled that the case “Tsukernik vs. Facebook” will be heard in Prague. According to Leon himself, this is a great advantage for them.
As the investigation carried out by the King’s lawyers, more and more details emerge. According to Czech law, online gambling advertisements must contain a mention of the need for responsible gambling. It was not on the banners of the fake King’s, which is another proof of the fact of deliberate violation of the law on the part of the social network.
Given the new circumstances, Leon really has all chances of winning the trial. But it won’t be done quickly.
King’s got a new ambassador
After the WSOP Europe schedule was announced, the host King’s Casino has a new ambassador. It is Max Pescatori, the owner of four gold bracelets. Over the course of his career, he has earned over $4,700,000 at live tables, of which $2,700,000 are winnings from the World Series.
