yeah stupid people and they maybe just ran out of ideas on how to clean their money, every drug dealer should know a way to clean the dirty money and they were just stupid traffickers lol and they make the headlines for the irony of what they did lo. Anyway bad things happens to people doing bad things so they got what they were bound to get. Karma a bitch!!

Looks like those guys outsmarted themself here. There are a lot of rumours that gambling joints are used to wash money from doubious sources. But it surely isn't done that way. But with $200k for 5 people these were amateurs.

Its a great idea but things in moderation or else you get caught.....id rather go risk some of the money and say lose 20% and leave like you just accepted the loss....if you win bonus!

So they just put 200k in the slots and then cashed in without even playing?And they didn't think the casino would notice?
They then allowed an undercover cop to enter their circle and bragged about how they were such great drug dealers?
Not the brightest of criminals.

I dont think this was the greatest plan ever hatched. How did they expect to get away without being noticed, two hundred thousand into slot machines and dont even play them.

Yea i mean it would be better if you just played the money through at least once. Theres nothing suspicious about that. And maybe u would have some money left today Tongue

I don't think it would have mattered what genius plan they came up with for laundering their money,once you start confiding with undercover cops your days of criminality are pretty much finished.
It also seems getting caught with drugs in USA is one of the worst places to be compared with other places around the world.

This piece of news have nothing to do with poker, just with some slots machine so i'm not really that interested...

Still, stories like this make the general public thing that this happens on all casinos and it's bad for the legit business and image of the games in general.
