    For you to get any real restitution in a class action lawsuit, you would need to be the lead plaintiff.

    Otherwise, all the members of the settlement class would probably only get a $5 discount, or something similarly useless.

    A better option might be a small claims suit.

    You would sue for actual damages, attorney fees, filing fees, and perhaps punitive damages.

    If you want to go the class-action route, contact an attorney.

    You can also read through the thousands of similar complaints and/or find out if others would be interested in joining.

    Bally's seems to be a notoriously unethical operation.

    Here's an example of one such site:

    I've used http://badproducts.com/ before in filing a small class action lawsuit. They recovered money for me and about 10 other people and were pretty helpful. I think the consultation form on the website is free so they should tell you if you have a case that's winnable. Good luck!
