Before we go ahead and bash the casino immediately (since most of us instantly assume that when somebody wins at a casino, they will do everything to find an excuse NOT to pay the winner), let’s see what happened last week, which started Monday, May 1.
At the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino located in Biloxi, Mississippi, police were called by the casino management on a situation regarding a couple who took off with over $1,000 in winnings, which they haven’t actually won.
Turns out that the two suspects, Christopher Ray Kinney, age 45, and Gina Renee Kinney, age 48, apparently had not placed any wager into a slot machine, but instead they simply cashed in a stolen ticket. Police speculate that they are husband and wife.
A gambler had left a slot machine unattended. Afterwards, the couple appeared, grabbed the cash-out ticket and collected the winnings.
On Friday, May 5, the two turned themselves in to the police. They were arrested on a grand larceny charge.
