A NJ man won a jackpot in excess of $10,000 at Parx Casino only to be followed home and murdered in a home invasion. The suspect followed his victim more than 50 miles to his house, then broke in and shot the man while the mans family slept upstairs.

While I didnít read the exact circumstances, but cash hand pays done in such a public way arenít good, imo.
Watch this guy. 5:50 start. Look at the stack of 100ís sitting on the slot machine. Completely reckless and unnecessary.
A guy cashed out at the cage for several thousand. The cage girl gave the winner's address to her thug boyfriend. Thug boyfriend went to the dude's house at 3am and killed him.
Seriously, though, there was one from Kansas City (last month) towards the end:
I also one time found a stack of money on the ground and a Detroit drivers license. I picked it up, and gave it to the guy who I saw playing roulette. He was super appreciative and bought me a couple drinks and gave me a small token for the honesty. Many of my friends asked why I didn't just keep the money. Stories like this are exactly why I didnt want to risk him seeing me pick it up and potentially kill me.
No amount of money is worth my life.
Somerton home invasion victim thinks suspects followed him from Parx
my suggestions for leaving a casino with cash and justifiable security concerns:
1._______do a trial run of leaving the casino - walk out to the parking lot (assuming you have a car) but don't walk near your car - walk
about 100 yards away from your car
while you're doing this take a look at the characters to see if any are watching you
then go back into the casino
assuming you've seen nothing suspicious then leave the casino from a different exit and go to your car still paying close attention
if you're walking you do basically the same thing except it might be wise to make 2 trips back into the casino since you
don't have a car which itself can provide some security
2._______when driving stop as soon as possible at a well lit and busy convenience store or gas station and again scope out if anybody is following you
if walking you can do the same thing if possible
if driving check your rear view and side view mirrors frequently
3.__________________________________always have your cell out and in view so anyone can see you can easily and quickly call 911
4._____________________________________________if anybody ever confronts you with a weapon immediately give him or them all your cash
do not fight - your life is much more valuable than your cash
