Re: Bellagio Poker Cage robbed at gunpoint

I just want to know why in 2017 the Bellagio security cameras are so crappy? At least it's better than the video from the 2010 robbery where there were fuzzy lines running across it like it was recorded on a used VHS tape back in 1983.

Security systems are expensive and you aren't going to replace thousands of cameras every few years.

Re: Bellagio Poker Cage robbed at gunpoint

So assuming they don't catch this guy, Bellagio will just eat the loss? No chip changes?

They'll cash him. Look at the adept way they've handled the Mandalay Bay case?

MGM PGP won't allow this. Can't increase costs if it doesn't increase revenue as a result at MGM properties anymore. The only thing that matters these days is how much MGM's stock has increased than anything these days.

Their insurance company will take a hit, not Bellagio.

Higher quality video released by the police. (The thumbnail is bad, because it's blurring out random people in the poker room)

Re: Bellagio Poker Cage robbed at gunpoint

It may be irrelevant. But, the guy walked through the high stakes area both before and after going to the cashier.

Anybody who's been in the Bellagio poker room would know that's a detour for somebody who wants to take the most direct route from the poker room entrance to the cashier (and back again). It would only add a couple seconds each way. But, why do it?

Best part is at 1:33 when it appears the dealer is pitching cards as robber leaves lol. I think that's usually where they spread the 80/160 mix and similar games. Doesn't surprise me; one little robbery is not grounds to hold up a super stud 8 hand.

I liked the part when the person beside him pulled his $600 away from the robber.

Re: Bellagio Poker Cage robbed at gunpoint

just did a little digging and found similiar image/video of person .... I could still be wrong but think I have something.

was there any mention of a reward?

I could post the similar photo itt to get some feedback but much of facial structure seems to be a match. Also would hate to be potentially wrong and connect potentially innocent party to this.

What is on his face? A bandage?

Also, mad props for putting white tape on the bridge of the glasses. Very inconspicuous and natural looking.

Contrary to your belief, the Hanson Brothers were not involved.

Anyway, it would seem that contacting the authorities (I assume they have some sort of crime tip, crime stoppers line there) is the way to better find out what you are looking for in terms of potential reward, though this is not really the type of crime that usually has one.

Confirmed, it was so casual as well.
