No one would ever suspect a man of senior age could find it in his heart to do this, but it's true that not all of our elderly folk want to lead a life of only good deeds when they reach their golden years. There are a few who, let's put it this way, wants to experience that unusual thrill which can only be done when you commit crime, and if things go their way, hopefully get away with it.

well that was a great scheme... cannot say that i am overly disappointed with the fact that casino was totally owned and actually even think that more of such crimes should be implemented against the house... one way or another casino's must be beaten.

I wondered why the trial lasted so long, but if you consider just the reading of the "other charges"
which were 162...
They took the law book and they charged him with anything it had into it? lol
And he was working along with 16 others. wow

It really fascinates me how people's minds work. I could never even imagine where to start to try and pull this off. I am glad he got caught and will now have to serve a long time behind bars

These stories are the ones coming out.
With so many casinos all over the planet, i bet there a more than a few that have managed
to scam a casino successfully and we will never get to know it..
Unless they make a movie for it , in the future Smile

I am now looking at a picure of the 55-year-old suspect sitting in the backseat of a police car, handcuffed. He looks like an avuncular city bus driver or a friendly host at a restaurant. Appearances are deceptive.

Very simple olan but worked well of course until all things were known to casino. I think it is better to try to make fake casino chips then fake money bills. Making money is a lot harder I think, so these guys created a nice and profitable plan but it didn't work

Any scam will someday open up ... and if it does not reveal it means everything turned out and we will never know about it ..... Asian people, it seems to me, with all diligence at every opportunity will try to deceive ... I say this from the experience of communication with them

i am just a little bit disappointed seeing this so called crime being rewarder with such a harsh punishment when casino's themselves getting away with scamming people each and every day with their free booze and games with house edge... me ponders that there should be no punishment here- just return the money and end of story...

That's a dissatisfying article. This accused had no connections to organized crime? What would it take to produce such good quality counterfeit chips? The only interesting fact is that the guy is older?

Yes I too think he is in a gang or something like this, because very well organized system, many people in this plan and chops that are not real but look veeyb real so if pokice get this man I think there are many people still free who are part of this crime.
