A New Jersey judge has ordered gamblers who won $1.5 million with unshuffled cards to return the money.

Judge Donna Taylor ruled in favor of Golden Nugget Casino in a lawsuit against 14 gamblers, saying the games did not conform to the state’s gambling regulations, according to The Daily Mail.

"The dealer did not pre-shuffle the cards immediately prior to the commencement of play, and the cards were not pre-shuffled in accordance with any regulation," the judge wrote. "Thus, a literal reading of the regulations… entails that the game violated the (Casino Control) Act, and consequently was not authorized."

The gamblers argued that “it is not their fault the cards were not shuffled,” adding that they should be able to keep the money.
