Eldorado Resort Casino

A 65 years old killed a casino manager

One player has just been sentenced to life in prison without parole because he killed a casino manager.

A 65-year-old will spend the rest of his life in jail for fatally wounding a casino manager in a Nevada casino dispute.

Without possibility of parole

For some players, the tables in land-based casinos are a place where they can get rich, such as the blackjack player at the Paris Las Vegas we reported recently. For others, however, it is not a place of happiness, as today's case shows. This story is about a certain Frederick Douglas Borden, who has just been sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.

With a single punch

The player lost a lot of money at the Eldorado Resort Casino on September, 2016. He was very angry about this loss and decided to grab all the chips off the table and run to the exit of the casino. Casinos manager James Bryant, 52, tried to stop him, but he was struck down with a single brutal blow and died a few days later.

The defendant was very aggressive

After losing a lot of money on blackjack, the player tried to steal the chips from the table, but when the manager tried to stop him, he struck him down with a powerful punch that resulted in death days later.

Frederick Douglas Borden, known for his impulsive behaviour, had no criminal record. During the trial he showed no remorse or regret and did not admit guilt. Instead, he behaved very aggressively during the process. All this prompted Judge Scott Freeman to sentence him to life imprisonment without probation.

In an online casino, tension between staff and players are easily avoided, so you can play without any physical risk at SlotsMillion, LeoVegas or PlayFrank.
