GREAT ARTICLE.....

I DON’T REMEMBER THAT HEIST AT THE VENETIAN RESORT FROM 2012. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE VIDEO OF THAT IDIOT LOADING UP 1.6 MILLION IN CHIPS.

HOW DID HE THINK HE COULD CASH IN THOSE HIGH AMOUNTS!?!?!?

5-6 YEARS AGO, I HAD $2,400 WORTH OF CHIPS I WON FROM THE HIGH LIMIT BLACKJACK AREA IN TREASURE ISLAND. I BELIEVE IT WAS ONE $1,000 DOLLAR YELLOW, TWO $500 DOLLAR PURPLES & FOUR $100 BLACKS.

THE TI CAGE LADY WAS A FRICKEN NIGHTMARE TO DEAL WITH. SHE WOULD NOT CASH THEM UNTIL I GAVE HER AN ID CARD AND SHE HAD TO SPEAK TO THE PIT BOSS IN THE HIGH LIMIT AREA.
I WAS TOTALLY SHOCKED HOW MUCH SCRUTINY I WAS SUBJECTED TO ON THIS SMALL AMOUNT FOR A LARGE LAS VEGAS CASINO. THEY GRILLED ME ON WHEN AND WHERE I WON THOSE CHIPS AND ALSO CALLED THE VIDEO ROOM & PIT BOSS. I WAS SO PISSED AFTER THIS EXPERIENCE I TOLD THEM THAT THIS WAS TOTAL BS AND THEY MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WAS A CRIMINAL.
THIS WAS ALL AFTER MGM PROPERTIES SOLD THE TI SO THEY COULD FREE UP SOME MONEY FOR THE CITY CENTER. SO MAYBE THAT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THESE NEW PROCEDURES?!?!

WE WERE STAYING AT THE TI ON A COMP ROOM OFFER BUT AFTER THAT CASH OUT MESS I DECIDED TO CROSS THE STREET AND HEAD OVER TO THE VENETIAN FOR MORE BLACKJACK. AS I WAS LEAVING THE TI, I SAW A GUY WHO I WAS PLAYING WITH IN THE HIGH LIMIT ROOM. I TOLD HIM I WAS HEADING TO THE VENETIAN AND HE WAS LOOKING TO DO THE SAME.

WE ENDED UP SPENDING 5-6 HOURS PLAYING BJ AT THE VENETIAN AND I THINK I WAS UP A LITTLE BY THE END IF THE SESSION. THE OTHER GUY WENT TO THE ATM MACHINE AT LEAST 3-4 TIMES AND WAS GETTING KILLED. I TOLD HIM HE SHOULD STOP PLAYING BUT HE WAS A BIG GAMBLING MAN AND HE WOULD NOT STOP.

I THINK IT WAS ABOUT 5:30 AM WHEN WE FINALLY WALKED INTO THE SIDE VALLET DOORS OF TI AND I REMEMBER TWO PRETTY GIRLS WEARING VERY SKIMPY DRESSES AND 6” HEELS WERE WALKING IN THE DOOR JUST IN FRONT US.
ALL OF THE SUDDEN TWO TI SECURITY GUYS WEARING SUITS (NOT UNIFORMS) WERE ALL OVER THESE GIRLS, THEY COULDN’T HAVE BEEN MORE THAT 6 FEET INTO THE CASINO. I WAS SO TIRED I WANTED TO JUST SLEEP ON THE CASINO FLOOR BUT I DO REMEMBER THEY TOLD THEM TO TURN AROUND AND IMMEDIATELY LEAVE THE PROPERTY. THE GIRLS DID COMPLAIN A LITTLE BUT DID LEAVE. THE SECURITY GUYS EVEN THOUGHT WE WERE ALL TOGETHER SINCE WE WERE SO CLOSE BEHIND THEM. I TOLD HIM NO WAY IN HELL WE WERE WITH THEM, WE WERE HERE WITH OUR FAMILIES, NOT PICKING UP HOOKERS.

ACTUALLY, I THOUGHT THEY WERE JUST TWO PRETTY GIRLS JUST COMING BACK FROM ONE OF THE CLUBS OR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN SO I WAS SHOCKED THEY WERE HOOKERS. SO MANY OF THE YOUNG GIRLS DRESS LIKE HOOKERS, SO ITS HARD TO TELL ANYMORE.. THOSE HOOKERS MUST HAVE BEEN WELL KNOWN TO THE CASINO SECURITY TEAM SO I’M SURE THE EYE IN THE SKY PICKED THEM UP BEFORE THEY EVEN GOT CLOSE TO THE DOOR.

I KNOW THE CASINOS ALL HAVE A DATA BASE ON KNOWN HOOKERS, CHEATS, BAD CHECK WRITERS & OTHER PROBLEM PEOPLE.

I CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR THE MGM HEAD OF SECURITY, BANQUET SPEAKER THIS YEAR!!!!
