when you win some money in a casino You can order escort of security guards .... This person apparently neglected this and was eventually attacked in the parking lot .... I think the parking is being watched by video cameras and the offender will soon be caught .... But of course you need be very careful when you win money

I didnt know for all these extra measures.
And the interesting thing is, that all participants, can ask for an escort to their
parked car. But i doubt that the escort is carrying a gun, so what good can come out in
a situation like that? Probably one more person with their hands up Smile

At this point money does not matter anymore but it is very good that this player has escaped with life. Life is the most important thing and if the thief is caught the damage ( cazino chips and money ) can be recovered more quickly.

Sad to see someone doing something like that just for money but its common in every single country not just "USA".
They should for sure have better security and not let something like that ever happen again.
Hopefully police is gonna find that thief fast.

Well I see no one is saved from robberies not even poker players or anyone hahaha but good is the sad reality, what I thought is that unless there is security in such places or even security cameras .. . Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

If that player had a gun he could avoid this robbery on him. It's easy when you have a little friend to help you and you can save yourself from many unpleasant situations. Unfortunately, he was robbed but he escaped without being hurt and now he can hope to regain what he has lost.

weapons are certainly good for protection, but sometimes it seems to me better to give money and leave than to try to oppose the criminal .... in the end It can end in very sad stories .... so it seems to me he did the right thing .... And he’s the money come back after a few days good games

I agree also. It doesnt worth risking your life for the money.
You never know how they will react, if you try to fight them back.
And the casinos are easy target, from what we all know, and we have seen may stories like
that.
It is a place where many are leaving with their pockets full.
Not the best thing to do though. Just use some other method to get your money,
and just keep some small bills with you, just to make the robbers happy, if anything like
that happens Smile

What do you do in the situation in which the thief has criminal thoughts? There are many sick people in this world and drug addicts who rob. Your life can always be in danger because they are drugged and paranoid. In this situation they become confused and it is very serious. A gun is a gun and can help when the situations are ,,hot''.

Healthy people could rob you too. Casinos are always places where you'd need to be more alert because all the money involved. He was smart for not putting up a fight, it might saved his life...

It is good to have friends when you go to the casino but if you win good money you will have to honor your friends in the bar or with some girls. Smile Life is hard for some people and they attack you to rob you. This is not fair and even if we live in civilized countries, here often the jungle law works.
