        According to the BBC a woman owed a £1m gambling debt to the Ritz Club casino from April 2012.

        In December 2012, Nora Nora Al-Daher, wife of the foreign minister of Oman, paid the casino £1m of the actual £2m debt she accumulated in a single night. A court ruling requires her to pay the remainder plus interest.

        Her court statements revealed that she spent another $5 million in Las Vegas within months of her loss at the Ritz.

        Al-Daher is a self-proclaimed gambling addict and claims that she was taken advantage of by the Ritz.

        No matter how or small the loss is, do you think it's valid to claim that the casino takes advantage? Or does the amount of the loss have something to do with it?

        The amounts stated are simply staggering to me I believe individuals should bet what they can afford and accept legitimate losses - but in this case I suspect the Ritz took advantage of this woman because of her financial status and allowed her to run up a massive debt, which I'm sure they would not do for most customers. I wouldn't be surprised if the Las Vegas casino was also aware of her gambling habits and yet only too happy to take her wagers, whether or not she had a problem. Nevertheless, at the end of the day this woman did knowingly lose all that money and should pay up if she has the means to do so. I hope she has learned a lesson and is getting the help she needs to deal with what looks like a behavioural addiction.

        I guess the casino could take advantage if they ply their punters with free alcoholic drinks. 

        This woman has too much money that's for sure.  If she can afford to lose 5 million in Vegas she can afford to pay them back what she borrowed and lost.

        Oh, my head is spinning just reading this - £1m and  £2m gambling debts! I think that casinos certainly take advantage of such players, and when someone is an addict, they can't really think straight. But I think that they need to suffer the consequences, which perhaps won't be too difficult form them to do. And then they need to look for help.

        How much? Man, I really can't imagine the huge amounts of money she gambled!

        It's pretty unfair to blame the casinos though, it's like I would blame the tobacco companies for my smoking.  Nobody is forcing me to smoke, it's true that it's addictive (like gambling) but there are ways to deal with an addiction if you want to get rid of it.

        I agree that if she could go to Vegas and spend that kind of cash she could pay her debt. I personally don't think it's fair to blame the casino. They are in the business of accepting wagers. How can you fault them for doing what they do? They post gambling addiction signs etc., not that many pay attention but it's the gambler that has to take control.
