For one thing, Wynn always has a semi plain clothes security that may or may not have a concealed weapon always standing near the entrance by the bridge.

He keeps the bums out but is positioned to take someone down that is trying to leave after a crime and gets word on his ear piece.

This guy robbed them before, robbed them again and even after he exited the casino nobody interfered with him until he tried to steal 2 cars in front of 4 police officers.

I am 100% sure Wynn security is also instructed not to engage an armed robber inside the casino. “Dead gunman in Bellagio poker room” is a much more expensive situation than “gunman takes off with $50k from Bellagio poker cage and was never seen again”. Best case scenario for the casino is no customer noticing the robbery and the guy getting killed by driving his getaway car in a ditch 5 miles away. That’s especially true in a destination that attracts tourists from all over the world, most of them from countries with significantly stricter gun laws who have never even heard a real gunshot in their life.

But even if you rob a Walmart at gunpoint, the armed security guard is going to let you exit the store and might try to engage you in the parking lot after making sure no customers are around. A $50mil lawsuit because a stray bullet from your security guard paralyzed a 7 year old child is an absolute nightmare, losing a couple grand that might even be insured is not.

If you are banned from a casino, they don't really care if you come back, they will just let you lose your money and then confiscate it if you win big.

Posted this in LVL, but never heard much. Did anyone ever find out if this guy actually played in the Bellagio room?
