  1. If you know anything about gambling or have ever stepped foot inside a casino, it’s pretty clear that the odds are always in favor of the house. That is, unless you happen to have an accomplice working inside the casino...

    Not quite 21 but that's pretty cool, im sure the casino was corrupt in one way or another
     
  3. Never said if he got to keep the $32 million and how would they have found out?

    I think this takes care of the first question.

    The casino could be getting reimbursed from their insurance policy. It never specifically says where they're getting the money from. I am also wondering if the cat got away with it.

    He got kicked out and banned, THEN the casino went looking for the stolen money?

    The casino prob makes 50 million a day...
     
  9. My guess is that after he won so much they kicked him out. They then checked the security cameras to see if they could find any funky stuff. This is when they found that one camera had, for the very same period, been trained on the hand of the dealer in question. After that they presumably tried to find out who trained that camera there.

    People who gamble at casinos are suckers, unless you cheat or scam your way, and even then, they will kick you out.
    I hear ads all the time saying "we have the loosest slots" and other BS. You think those multibillion dollar resorts got
    built because *****s that gamble won?
