E! has every episode ever of 'Las Vegas' marathon on now.
I've been watching all night and they arrest a lot of people like nobody's business.
Right now they're tracking a card counter who doesn't stay at a table long enough to count so they figure he has a partner/lookout.
In an earlier episode they arrested a dice influencer who kept rolling 10's and leaving with $8K-$10K. They invited him to an exhibition and promised to pay him $100K to demonstrate his throw. Instead they tracked down his accomplice with the magnetic dice and didn't pay up! They were gonna throw him out but decided to figure out how he was so lucky!

I'm at S3 E18 (3/17/2006) at 5am ET on Sunday.

I stopped watching when in season one they used infrared to analyze what was in some guys pockets with extreme clarity.

That show is a joke. What most people think Casino surveillance can do.

Can't fight the infrared cameras looking for cold fake boobs.

And they're using a mid-00's phone camera to put a card counting team into the black book and barring them from the casino.

2:30 am ET on Monday
Sam becomes the new owner of the Montecito, enter 2 IRS agents to inform her that the previous owners owe $240+ million in back taxes and if it's not paid in 7 days, the IRS will seize the Montecito.

So Sam asks Ed to buy the casino for $300 million but he already knows about the IRS, so his counter-offer is to buy it at a private auction for half the price and he would become owner.

Magnum PI took over the casino and his first official act was to hand out $1,000 cash to everyone in the casino!

How does the new owner deal with a suspected card counter who won a million at blackjack? They put new cards in the shoe, watch him lose the first shoe, then win 80% of his hands on subsequent shoes. They figure out he's marking cards and can identify the dealer's hole card. So the owner arrives at the table, ditches the shoe, has two decks of cards in his hands and tells the player to bet, a lot. Player draws a 20, but the owner dealer hits him anyway and takes his money. This goes on & on, player bust on a dealer cheat until all the money he won is back in the dealer's rack, then he gets banned from the casino. No gaming commission, no police, and no more gambling.
