Casino in Schweiz robbed!

Tags: casino cosmopol, ept berlin, malta, robbery, Schweiz.
Posted on 02 April 2010 by "T".

Last weekend a casino in Basel, Schweiz was robbed. Around 10 armed men broke in through the entrance door, dragged guns and fired a warning shot before demanding everyone to lay down on the floor while they went through their handbags and pockets taking everything of value. The robbers failed with getting in to the bank valve, though, they still managed to get away with quite a lot of money. So far the police hasn't arrested anyone and there are very few details left out for media to take part of.

This is the 4th casino related robbery in Europe in a very short time. In the beginning of February a casino in Malta was robbed. On the 6th March the Grand Hyatt hotel, where EPT Berlin took place, was robbed. The very next day a money transport truck was robbed outside Casino Cosmopol in Stockholm.

A fair number of the other robbers have already been caught, making it very unlikely its all the same people.

Its like an everyday crime now that someone robs a casino. I know that in Estonia it has happened more than few times alsol, but the amounts being robbed are totally different. If it was only slot machines casinos that were robbed I relly would not gaf Blink, but if there were poker tables aswell, then I do hope they will catch those robbers!

This is only going to get worse.
In Belgium gangs are starting to rob supermarkets with Kalashnikovs.
Crazy! and there is so much money up for grabs in the casinos, security will be beefed up aal over the world, i'm sure.

i think in this moment is more profitable to rob up the casino that the bank lol

This is starting to be a pandemic. People are seeing the easy score of robbing a casino and are copy catting the process.

Hello everybody!

See you soon for new posts lol!

Things like this are becoming normal to see on the news. What world is this that we are living at? Economical crysis is turning things difficult to some!

 $k04/04/2010 06:51:17 GMT
wow so man people are robbing casinos i dont know why tho who wants to go behind bars and then get a bar behind you lol
 ierons04/04/2010 10:29:41 GMT
I feel sorry for the guests I guess, but I just can`t feel any pity for casinoes. Bunch of fucking black holes...

and... I doubt the French authorities will give a shit about what happens in Switzerland.
 Gabri04/04/2010 10:38:03 GMT
I agree on don't having pity for the casinos. They don't have pity for you when you lost a fortune there. I just don't know how can these guys rob a casino and get away with all that security. Maybe an inside job?
 KalorTald04/04/2010 11:21:54 GMT
It's sad to see how much casino were robbed last time.
 robkey6904/04/2010 12:15:20 GMT
it was allways going to happen, all that money inb 1 place.
 Raggamann04/04/2010 15:56:37 GMT
probably no amateurs like in berlin, but not really smart too. they robbed 100k, making about 10k for everybody. armed robbery for 10k? its a joke when you consider how long you have to go to prison if you get caught. robbing the transport makes more sense in my eyes, theres the big money
 leroi2104/04/2010 18:01:53 GMT
i think they gonna caught them like they caught the ept robbers but dont know for the money ... not big chance to find it

And the next one. Evil

A casino in Lyon has been robbed by 4-5 men. They escaped by car with ~ 28.000 Euros.

It is like a disease. Evil
 T3ddyKGB04/04/2010 19:36:39 GMT
i hope this wont be a domino effect that some wanna be gangsters start to rob costumers after leaving the casino with big winnings.
perhaps its always been that way just we never heard about things like that, but since poker got more and more popular the news bring it on TV/newspaper ?
 911insidejob04/04/2010 19:38:25 GMT
wow another 1..gees it seems easier to rob a casino than to grind out a few sngs's for some dollars...
 mozg8804/04/2010 20:42:58 GMT
And speak, in a casino it is impossible to win!Go and WIN!!! Smile
