The UK’s Supreme Court recently ruled in the case of Ivey v. Crockfords that the poker player Phil Ivey cheated while playing punto banco in the Crockfords Club casino in London. The Supreme Court decision provides guidance on the kind of conduct that, at least in the UK, will constitute ‘cheating’ in the context of gambling, and the relevance of dishonesty in determining this. The Court’s decision also has implications for what will be considered cheating in online gambling in particular. Simon Wallis of Joelson discusses the facts of the case, before exploring what the decision means for online gambling, through the use of a number of examples specific to the remote gambling context.
