it would be nice that I get dealer like this and to give such a cards against me!what a funny story,when casinos cant believe anymore to people who work there!till this days,we had dealers who love to take money,now they love to give
When next to you every day a lot of money is lying that of course the temptation to bite off a piece of cake is great .... but for such work it is necessary to take people who will not commit a crime ... of course to define it is very difficult therefore such stories occur
How the hell they came up with that .75 cent sum at the end? There is no chips worth less than a doillar and this game was not a nickle and dime slot machine - this is ridiculous. Ah, well - asians are really not good at hiding these things.

The national average base pay for a casino dealer in the United States is under $25,000. That's really not a lot. I guess Li Rong Gao, the croupier, was probably driving an older car and living in a modest home. But that is still better than getting locked up, isn't it?

It's a nice little scam isn't it really. Become a dealer and invite your mates to play at your table and deal them the best hands. In the grand scheme of things, twenty six thousand dollars isn't that big a deal while it may be for the players who benefitted from this scam. Looking out for the next report of the next scam!
