I keep reading about pre-paid cards from Wal-Mart getting hacked before people even get home with them. No amount of deregulation from Congress is going to stop that.

From 4 years and a couple weeks ago.

My hypothetical scenario is that each of the 10 people have illegally gained money($1,000 each person, so a lot of $10,000. ) They make a plan before even going anywhere near the Casino not to come in and leave at separate times and not to interact with each other at all, let's say at a bar. By the time they are each in the Casino they have entered at separate times and never interacted with each each other and all left at separate times so that the Casino won't question the money. If you are a Casino Employee/Manager/Owner who draws your suspicion? The one guy who has $10,000 or the guy who has $1,000? I know my suspicion would be drawn to the one with $10,000 and not the one with only $1,000.
In both The Hunger Games and in gambling, may the odds be ever in your favor. :D "Man Babes" #AxelFabulous The 2 year war is over! Woo-hoo! :D I sometimes speak in metaphors. ;) Remember this. ;) Crack the code. :D 8.9.13.25.14.1.13.5.9.19.14.1.20.8.1.14! :D "For about the 4096th time, let me offer a radical idea to those of you who don't like Nathan -- block her and don't visit Nathan's Corner. What is so complicated about it?" Wizard, August 21st. :D

The TV series Vegas from a decade ago with James Caan seemed to emphasize money laundering prevention tactics. Like if you buy-in for $5000, gamble for 15 minutes and cash out, that would get you a visit from the casino owner and his thugs.

Just the other week, a guy next to me strolling up to the craps table was being hassled by a suit. The player had a match play in his hand and was about to do a doey-don't with it. The suit said to the guy something about "You've already talked to the vice-president of the casino and he never wants to see you do that again!"
What? Was it his match play? I don't know, and nobody told me why. But that is not something I want to hear in a casino except to hear it once, said to someone else. The player played on, a bit rattled. Should I have left the table? You know somebody's watchin'.

As far as Drake being barred from gaming at a casino he'll be performing at, that might be a security thing so he isn't mobbed by patrons while he's at the roulette wheel. You know, employees can't gamble kind of thing too. But if there's a stray celeb in the crowd who isn't performing, they're free to use an alias on the floor.

Drake can hire a look alike that "Left," earlier while Drake dons a very good disguise and gambles in peace. Michael Jackson came to visit Janet Jackson on her Rhythm Nation video set wearing a very good old man disguise and security accosted him thinking this "Old man," looked like a creep and were taken aback that it was really Michael trying to visit his little sister, LMAO. Drake can do something similar and no one would know it's really him if the disguise is really good and the gamblers already saw "Drake," leave earlier. ;)

It's wonderful you have a plan. Having a good plan is usually a good thing.

Now please tell me what your plan is accomplishing and how it's helping you launder the money. And again, I'm not talking about washing money.

Your plan would work for washing money, however, you wouldn't need 10 people to go in all at once or one place. You wouldn't need to have some big meet up at a bar prior. One person could just go to 10 different casinos in one day or 10 casinos in 10 days or some variation of that. IMO having 10 people would be way too many people that you would have to worry about f-ing something up or ratting you out. I think I have to give your hypothetical plan an actual F.
♪♪Now you swear and kick and beg us That you're not a gamblin' man Then you find you're back in Vegas With a handle in your hand♪♪ Your black cards can make you money So you hide them when you're able In the land of casinos and money You must put them on the table♪♪ You go back Jack do it again roulette wheels turinin' 'round and 'round♪♪ You go back Jack do it again♪♪
