Riverboat Casinos Sue Scientific Games Over ‘Illegal’ Shuffler Monopoly

Two Midwest riverboat casinos are suing Scientific Games (SG) over claims the gaming supply giant fraudulently monopolized the market in automated card shufflers. The suit claims they did so by strangling competition with “sham lawsuits.”

Casino Queen, of East St Louis, Ill., which trades as DraftKings at Casino Queen, and Casino Queen Marquette, of Marquette, Iowa, are both docked on the Mississippi River. They allege SG’s behavior allowed it to set prices without fear of being undercut.

The lawsuit argues direct purchasers of shufflers, like the plaintiffs, have been damaged financially as a result, and seeks appropriate financial relief. It wants other operators to join the class-action lawsuit against SG and demands a jury trial.

The suit also names SG subsidiaries Bally Technologies and Bally Gaming as defendants.
