Customer Question

In a casino I was playing an electronic roulette machine and won £800. I went reception to get a transfer card that enables me to cash out the winnings. When I came back someone had cashed out my winnings and claimed the cad at the cash desk. The casino know who he was and an internal investigation is pending. Do I have any legal recourse to claim the winnings off the thief?
