A "Suit" at Sand's Bethlehem casino is alleged to have made bogus entries into the comp system that gave a player two thousand dollars in comp credits and a forty five dollar meal.

I hope he wasn't just entering righteous info from another patron incorrectly. It would be horrible if it was actually an honest clerical mistake.

Multiple entries over a two week period, so chances of "mistake" seem remote, particularly since the entry starts with a card swipe, not a keyed-in number.

What about a fairly common practice in Vegas: a visiting Rich Uncle plays on his own card for two weeks but plays on his neice's card for one day so as to bump up her comps with his action. The floor people know he is not a young blonde named Stephanie, they know what he is doing. He is giving his neice a few extra meals and a few extra dollars in freeplay. Its not a crime in Vegas.

I've been "overcomped" at Sands a few times for $20, $40 & $56. But it wasn't because I conspired with the Pit boss to do so.

I simply played for an hour or two at a $15 BJ table, made a decent amount and just got up with the winnings without Coloring in.

Sands PA is so overpacked at the BJ tables, there are usually people standing behind you waiting for a spot and they jump in before you even get 2 ft from the table.

A lot don't give a player's card or come in with chips in hand, so the Pit boss doesn't realize it's a different player and keeps the the rated play going for the initial player.

I doubt that this case could have carried on that long to comp in the Thousands, but not entirely out of the question if it was a high stakes table.
