A New Jersey casino is reimbursing players in a poker tournament that was suspended after counterfeit chips were discovered.
More than 2,100 entrants who finished outside the top 450 and played in the same room as the North Carolina man who is accused of introducing the fake chips will get $560, including a refund of their $60 entry fees from the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
The top 27 players are to share the remaining prize money, which comes to $19,323 each.
All entrants will get back their $60 fee under the deal, which was ordered by the state Division of Gaming Enforcement.
Between fees refunds and prizes, the casino is to pay out $1.7 million.
