Thread: 9 Scandals That Rocked The Gambling Industry

  1. #1
    I remember the employee that walked out of the Stardust with the suitcase full of chips and money. 27 years later and they still have not caught him.

    Richard Marcus's book American Roulette was an entertaining read (he was one of the nine scandal persons listed in the article linked above) IMHO.

    I have a funny feeling that “they” caught him, we just haven’t found him...8 miles out, 6 feet under....
    Keep your friends close, keep your drinks closer...

    Could be true. Pretty amazing if he did get away with it. I`m surprised the "motorcycle helmet bandit" as I think they called him who robbed the Bellagio craps table wasn`t listed in the article (he was even the son of one of the mayors of LV, which is probably why it wasn`t mentioned). He got away with it for a good while (and I think the amount of chips was bigger than the Stardust robbery too) until he got too greedy when he started running out of chips. Then he sold one of the chocolate chips to..... an FBI agent. Doh! Cool article though, thanks for posting that Mickey.
