NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Three gamblers have filed a lawsuit against Foxwoods Resort Casino alleging the eastern Connecticut casino failed to pay them more than $1.1 million that they won in a table game in 2011 and didn't give them back a $1.6 million deposit they put down to cover any losses.

The Day of New London reports that the gamblers filed the lawsuit in federal court in New Haven July 31, seeking $3 million in damages. The plaintiffs are Chinese nationals Cheung Yin Sun of Las Vegas and Long Mei Fang and Zong Yang Li of Los Angeles.

The lawsuit says Foxwoods officials didn't pay the men because they believe the gamblers cheated.

The men say they won nearly $1.15 million playing mini-baccarat using a legal card-monitoring practice.
