    No Jackpot for you!

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A man who won over $9,000 at an Iowa
    casino can't collect his winnings because he had been banned from
    the casino 10 years earlier.
    The Iowa Supreme Court ruled Friday that Prairie Meadows
    Racetrack and Casino in Altoona can withhold winnings from a person
    who has been "involuntary excluded."
    The case involves Troy Blackford, who won $9,300 in 2006. Due to
    the big jackpot, Prairie Meadows had to issue a W-2 for tax
    purposes. The casino then learned Blackford had been banned from
    the casino in 1996 for damaging a slot machine and it refused to
    pay his jackpot.
    Blackford's attorney, Ryan Beattie, says they're disappointed
    with the decision.
    Dennis Ogden, who represents the casino, says the ruling makes
    clear that banned customers should stay away.

    How big of a loser do you have to be to get banned at a casino.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
