Well, if only they could have stuff the money into a safe then use it wisely under the radar, without raising any kind of awareness - or even launder through some off-shore bank account... But no, they all lost their mind after which is quite funny since to get this kinda money in the first place they were required to be cool, calm and collected while doing the original scheme yet after they went 4 da total opposite and of course this was the thing which initially brought them down.

It looks like they had a very good scheme going on for a short while,not sure why they appear to have gone all wrong but it is usually greed on the part of someone that scuppers this type of crime.
I don't think pleading for leniency after a gambling crime is going to be successful in Vegas either!!

I really don't understand how they could do this kind of cheating even with the Craps dealer help. Casino have floor manager that is making verifications of the tables and they also have a camera system.

It had to be a very good scheme to go trough this surveillance without being caught in a short period of time. Confused Confused

If they doing it with small amounts and in different time periods (during the shifts of different floor managers) then the untrained eyes could easily look over them especially in places like this - which is popular as hell. I think at least this is how I'd do it...
