I think people are so greedy that they decide to do anything to get the money especially the bigger amount of it. So they step the line and make crimes, they rusk and they know that they can get in hail but still they rusk maybe money makes them blind?

Not sure that i understood how they did that scam with the pins and the free money in slot. How someone get so much free money to play slots in a physical casino. This is something that needs to be more detailed.

This was a very big amount of money to launder and, i think, he got off pretty lightly with his sentence. Casinos' are ideal places for this sort of thing to happen and the security must be pretty good there to catch these guys
The term of imprisonment is not very large and the person roughly understanding this decided to take a risk and commit a crime ... of course we do not know all the events and maybe he did it for some reason that is not described here ... ... but of course he should be in prison

well half a million is not the biggest scam in history, but it is decent money i guess, so i can only say well done dude for owning the casino, shame that this achievement was treated like a crime, better luck next time.

It takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort to misappropriate such a large amount of money. I am glad to know that the wrongdoers got caught and penalized by the authorities.

I don't think that such guys are doing very bad crimes, they are not killers or maniacs they just use some mistakes in the system and make money from this, and also show security people what needs to be done somthat no such mistakes are left in the future, so inthink prison is too strong, I think they need to return money and pay some fine.

Perhaps he used the time in the prison to be a serious guy in the future... That was verry strong to do that as, a Vice President. It seems he have not a good character for this job... Perhaps they found a better person for this position.
