A Las Vegas high roller is trying to find the person who spiked his drink while playing blackjack in December 2021 at the MGM Grand. Dwight Manley believes that someone put the horse tranquilizer ketamine into his beverage before he proceeded to lose $2m gambling in a VIP room. Billboards announcing the $1m reward were seen across the city in recent days:

Manley previously offered a $500,000 incentive for info that leads to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator. Talking about the matter, he said “Any tip is worth looking at. Someone knows who did this and we want to keep it from happening again. I could have died.” The 58-year-old is suing MGM Resorts International over his claim that he was the victim of a serious criminal act in its establishment that led to him acting erratically.

The casino allowed the former sports agent to raise his max credit limit three times, eventually reaching $3.5m. He claims that someone spiked his drink and pit staff noticed him acting strangely afterward. He eventually left the table with his friends, forgetting to bring $500,000 in chips from the table when he got up.

While MGM is seeking $440,000 through legal action, Manley says he owes nothing and has made a number of allegations against the company, including deceptive or unfair trade practices.
