LAS VEGAS -- Steven Frith said his Las Vegas weekend was ruined when a rare scoring change in a September USC-Utah football game swung the betting result in many sports books from the Utes to the Trojans.
But after weeks of haggling, the Folsom, Calif., resident and USC fan found sweet victory when the Nevada Gaming Control Board ruled in his favor. His $200 check arrived last week.
"I've lost plenty of money in casinos over the years," Frith said. "It seems only fair that they actually pay on the occasions I do win."
Regulators had been taking calls from gamblers and casinos after Pac-12 officials changed the score of the Sept. 10 game two hours after it ended.
