An overweight, angry gambler is kicking up a stink after being thrown out of a casino for his bad body odour.
Michael Wax admits he brought a bad smell to the Atlantic City casino where he spent 17 hours playing poker - but claimed he did not have enough time to clean up.
The 200kg punter was eventually asked to leave after complaints by other gamblers.
He said he told casino officials: “There’s no question I stink. I’m not denying it.
“I do have an odour. I’ve been playing for 17 hours.”
But the 54-year-old limousine company owner said he deserved better treatment, as a frequent customer at the Borgata casino.
He said a poker room manager followed him into the restroom and informed him that patrons at his table were complaining about his body odour.
When the Brooklyn man tried to retake his seat at the table, he said a manager told him to leave.
He said he asked for a free room to freshen up, and the casino refused.
He has now filed a complaint about his treatment with the Casino Control Commission.
“I would like an apology,” he added.
His complaint will be reviewed to determine whether any state gambling laws or regulations were violated, a commission spokesman said.
Dave Coskey, a spokesman for the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, said it was company policy not to comment on matters involving customers.
