Than, there was also the Stupak / Binion's thing, I don't know whatever happened there, but Becky Binion refused to honor some $5K chips, claimed they were all accounted for.



Yeah but chances are Becky didn't have 5k in the cage.
I have a bewitched egg that I use to play VP with and I have net over 900k with it.

EvenBob sent me a PM with the MGM refused chip story. That can be found at www.sportscapperisland.com titled "Nolan Dalla and His Confiscated $5,000 Chip." The Bellagio will likely be even pickier than the MGM in accepting the old chips.

How about bets on how long until the perp is caught?



I go with #5, "After (spring), but still caught."

According to the evening 10pm Fox news (local), these large denomination chips are microchipped and/or serial numbered in some manner.

I will go with sometime in the month of January. I think with the holidays coming up, it will be hard for LVPD to devote resources to the investigation. Also, the perp will be laying low. However, I think he will try to pass some of the chips on New Year's eve, which will lead to his arrest in January.

I have visions of a guy somewhere smashing open a 25k chip to find the micro chip

I just saw the video footage of the robber running out of the Bellagio. My question: how come there were no security guards chasing him? Sure it was 4am, but there still must have been plenty of security guards on duty. And the robber probably had quite a long distance to go between the craps table and the exit.

Nice to see you were celebrating in style. How was the Bellagio? :P



Hehe.....

Actually, when I was there in October I did manage to win one $1000 chip, and I had no problem cashing it, didn't need to show ID. Probably because I only had one.

I actually think they handled it very well, no shots were fired, no-one got hurt, and the guy probably has less than $100 worth of plastic composite chips that he probably can't cash, and even if he did, they will claim on the insurance. Last thing I want them to do is try and detain an armed robber within the confines of the property.

If we assume he doesnt actually cash the large denominations, they might even make a profit from the insurance. Plus a load of publicity.
