In 2006, Troy Blackford, a Des Moines, Iowa, truck driver, won $9,387 gambling at Prairie Meadows casino. Blackford tried to collect the winnings, but his request was denied by the casino. Officials said that he had been banned from the casino since 1996, and the ban had not been lifted. (In the 1996 episode, Blackford had punched a slot machine and was belligerent with casino security.) Blackford sued the casino.
