I'd doubt it and hope it doesn't get to that point.

If he did and don't catch him, you'll find out pretty quick as they'll likely move to cancel all 25k chips. (See BikerBandit about that one)

Speaking of BikerBandit, it's a good reminder that staff is trained to let an armed robber leave the hotel so that he doesn't shoot any innocent person on his way out. (I made the mistake of reading some twitter replies and there's too many people confused as to why the person wasn't shot immediately onsite)

Re: Bellagio Poker Cage robbed at gunpoint

Why dont any robbers ever just simply tape something over their license plate right before going in?

Risk of getting pulled over before/right after they commit the crime? Also, probably not his car

I'd be so pissed if I was trying to cash out and had to wait for the cage to figure this **** out.

Jesus. Biker bandit was in 2010. Time flies when you’re wasting time on a forum.

Article didn’t say what he got away with. Wonder if he got cash or all checks

Robber got away with $35k according to Doyle Brunson, who says there was $200,000 in cash waiting for deposit in Bobby's Room.

They don't take the $10 and $20 chips at any other cages, they are poker only.

Maybe they would make an exception because of this, but I've had a few randomly in my pocket and had to walk my ass back to the poker room.

I'm very confident that they'll make an exception during these circumstances
