The masked gunman apparently had no qualms about walking up to the craps table at Las Vegas’ Bellagio Casino. He shouted “move” as he approached the table and took all the chips located inside of the box on the Craps table that are worth an estimated $1.5 million. Police suspect the robber may be the same man who robbed Suncoast Hotel & Casino last week, taking $20,000 in cash.
The casino has multiple safeguards to avoid these types of crimes. Aside from the obvious criminal investigation that is taking place, both casinos will have to rethink their security strategies, not only for their financial safety, but also for the overall safety of their customers and clients.
