Another proof, that the most dangerous attacks come from the inside of a company. But i am a bit surprised that the person on the floor didn`t notice that players were taking pictures of the cards. Should ring some alarm bells.

I really do not think that he could get away with this with all the security protocols that these casino's have in place. I am glad that he was caught and it looks like he is going to go to jail for quite a long time

I think they take photographs very smart way to use some technology that it is not easy for person on the floor to see players take photos. And of course they all and dealer think about this situation for long time so that not get attention

Why is he the only person charged so far?
At the end he was getting just a small portion of the money.
A meaningless amount, compared to the actual winnings.

Does this news reminds you of something?
Like Ivey and Sun conspiring? The moment this happens you are breaking rules and laws...

of course this is a group fraud, and therefore all the participants in this violation of the law must be in answer .... he received part of the money ... others also received part of the money ... others are also supposed to suffer punishment .... to be fair ... . all fines and in prison

Another case in which a casino employee conspire with friends, to win illegal money from a casino. I do not understand why he received so little money for this maneuver, in the other casino where he worked, only $ 1000. Anyway, this guy is another loser who will get in jail because he was caught. It's interesting to know what was his share of this million dollars.

But then everybody going to see you are into your smartphone all the time something happening on the table. It's not a foolproof plan either.

Trying to steal from your work place? Not a very good idea, but I bet he did this before and he didnt get caught. Also, I'm wondering how were the players taking photos and nobody saw them? And for how long did they play to take away over $1.000.000? Casinos these days have a lot of tech to catch cheaters, it's not worth trying to steal from a casino, you will definitely end up in jail.

If it is a big casino, it isnt that easy to check everyone out.
There must be a delay at some point. Catching everyone in the act must be hard.
I doubt too many are getting away with it.
And if the repeat their actions, then they are betting on casino's favor catching them Smile

The risk reward ratio in this is not good. The risk far outweighs the reward of stealing from your employer so this was a bad call on the part of the dealer. Why oh why do people still think they can get away with it? Maybe some do, but it really is arrogant to think you can get away with it, cos you will lose it all in the end anyway!

this is one of the few stories about dealers scammers .... usually such stories are buried in the wilderness of Nevada .... of course now are other times but gangsters and mafia are immortal .... maybe the dealer is still lucky that he will just go to jail ... perhaps

I think many of them trying to be paperless as much as they could so thy do not have to fear the random robberies which could occur at these places as well.

I not think people who take pictures take them with smartphone many chance that they use some other technology to nit be able to see easy, maybe some micro camera, for example in our local casino you cannot put anything on table not cigarettes not matches box, maybe it is different in this casino

Maybe, maybe not. But whats the point using these if they are not sitting at a high roller table. Lifetime ban and prison sentence versus a couple hundred/thousand dollars. Ir is very far from the whole thing being even, very-very far - in my opinion.

I would understand if you do something for big amount,like million or two and then to go in jail for few years,that would understand why he do it!but for few bucks to spend so many years,you must be mad!you know what is law in america,so what can you expect,especially if do it for second time in life!
if you get bigger amount,then you have something after you go out from jail,but for this...

The worst thing is not that, that he did it for a small amount.
The worst thing is that he did it while he was employed.
Others have not a job at all and are struggling to keep it straight,
and you get the ones that have one, to steal, from their own job on top...

The casino must investigate each of its workers, as it is possible that Ming Zhang, has several investigations for similar facts and continue to work as a letter dealer, it is left if you revoke the license and stop committing these frauds in the casinos

There is no chance he is going to work in a casino again.
Data like this travels all around the casinos.
The even share players details, from casino to casino,
and you may denied entrance in a specific casino, for something that you did in another one.
