2 gamblers take NJ casino for more than $11M


news.yahoo.com

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Lightning has struck twice at the Tropicana Casino and Resort, which has lost more than $11 million to just two high-stakes gamblers since April.

Just weeks after a blackjack player beat the casino for $5.8 million, a different gambler won $5.3 million last week.

Yet despite the huge losses, the Tropicana is sticking with its new emphasis on high-stakes table games play, confident that things will eventually run it its favor.

"That's just how it goes sometimes; if you bet more, you can win more," said Tony Rodio, the Tropicana's president and CEO. "We have

Now I love to see the house get taken. The problem here is, can you trust that it was an independant player or players that won? What if it was all set up by the new owner to get publicity? The motive would be to bring in the money hungry suckers and let them leave hungry. If you need the business, what would be better than to say, "see thse guys did it, you can too?"

I love how the owner or manager says he is ok with it. I am sure that behind the scenes he is figuring out a way to make the house odds better.

PR stunt.

When the Casino in my town opened up last year you couldn't walk past the place without winning a couple dollars, things have since slowed down.

Similarily video lottery terminals payout like mad for the two weeks before Christmas (I stood across from a bank of machines for 4 years as a bartender...we had to double our cash reserves each year for those couple weeks to cover the 'increased luckiness' of our patrons).

How much would it have cost them to advertise thier highstakes tables nationwide/internationally VS what they paid these couple of people?.

HA very smart thinking there. I suppose though to make it seem real and to stop the person from balbbing about it would take a lot of effort as the person that they use could just say that they owe me all this money that I won and they wont give it to me. The casino could hardly say ahhh but no we set this up as a fake as a promotion as that would get them in a hell of a lot of trouble. Very good idea tho to promote gambling there!

I have a contact in Mexico that was heavily involved with developing casinos there. He says that all casino slots (terminals) there and here are controled by one master computer that varies the odds as it sees fit to stay within the odds limit. But if election computers can be fixed with secret programs, why not those in gambling houses? I mean, after all....

Card games would seem to be legit, I suppose, but who knows for sure?

That is a good question.

The news outlets would pick it up for free just for ratings. Everyone wants to win millions.
