Surviving that will hopefully teach him a valuable lesson. Also he is likely going to collect significantly more than the initial 60K.

Dumbass wins a lot of money, either decides to get a room or already has one. Tells some girls to come party in (room number). Girls tell pimps / boyfriends, or since this is 2021 they might've just done it themselves: show up at dumbass' room with the means to separate a fool from his money.

I don't gamble at casinos much, but if I did, I would stay at a different casino from where I won. Same principle as moving your car in the mall parking lot after dropping some purchases in the trunk before going back in for lunch.

The fact that it wasn't his fault doesn't change the fact that he did a bunch of dumb stuff that made it more likely to happen.

He'll be lucky if his medical expenses are under half a million.

Kinda.

I mean I should be able to put all my expensive shiat out on my front porch then go to sleep and wake up expecting it to still be there. Because stealing is illegal.

But if I did that you would probably call me an idiot.

$60k is nothing compared to the settlement MGM will pay for letting people in to kill him. Can see lawyers rubbing their little hands already.

You win the money, go *immediately* to the cashier's window and get a damn *check* for the money, then find out if your bank has a nearby branch and deposit that sucker, *then* tell your buddies you got lucky, and ask the casino if they would provide security to get you to the damn bank (because there *are* people at casinos looking to see who the big winners are so they can rob them).

Oh, yeah, and that casino/hotel needs better security procedures if someone with an AR-15 is getting in the damn building. Does no one remember what happened the last time someone was inside a casino/hotel with a long gun? I'm sure there are some people in Las Vegas that can tell you about it.

I do take risks sometimes, but usually they're well calculated risks.  I think I would do very much as you described if I won big at a casino.  But I've already calculated the risks long ago and won't be putting any money down at a casino.

When casinos first opened up in Detroit, security would often times drive behind people who won big in order to dissuade robberies.  People suck.

It should also be determined if he was wearing a short skirt the casino had adequate screening for firearms of any kind.

Was MGM negligent?  To me, that all depends on how the perp got a long rifle to the vic's room.

Did the perp open carry thru the lobby or conceal the rifle in a suitcase?

Maybe not $60k ones. My brother's bank won't let him deposit checks over $10k via phone. Some friends' banks have other limits.

BWAH-HA-HA-HA!

They absolutely f*cking won't do that.

They will "provide security" to you anywhere you want to go on their property.

Once you're off their property, you're on your own.

I once won $8k playing poker at a casino and didn't need to ask for security, they showed up as soon as I stood up and escorted me until I left the property. They had someone get knocked out in the parking garage for a $5k win a few days prior.

Any more and I would see about the casino electronically transferring the winnings directly to my bank account. I can do that for sure in Canada, not sure about the states.. I expect if I were going down there I would get an American bank account through my Canadian bank and deposit it there. And, I would make sure the casino doesn't 'withhold the tax'.. that would be annoying since I wouldn't be taxed on the windfall in Canada.

First, to the underlined part from Clavell... no, that's not a thing. They provide security on their property, they're absolutely not gonna provide security or assume liability for anything off site.

As for your part... Not for farkin 60k they wont... my banks limit is 5k for phone deposits.

Eh, I dunno... I took a tour of a major casino's security setup in Las Vegas a few years ago. The surveillance of the table games and the cash cages were impressive. Just about everything else was overlooked. The system that was monitoring the hotel areas and the staff areas was abysmal. Think a control room from 1988.

They only really care about their cash. Once they've given it away they only want it back in the machines or on the tables.

I mean, wasn't that shooting of a country music concert in Vegas done by a guy who toted like dozens of guns up to his hotel room in an MGM Grand Casino also... maybe they're just bad about keeping guns out of their hotels in general.

It was the Mandalay Bay but yes. That guy made multiple trips to bring his whole arsenal up to his suite and no one at the resort seemed to notice.

I think they've implemented measures to try and prevent that from happening again (housekeeping now has to check the room daily, regardless of the "do not disturb" sign), but the jury is still out on how effective that is.

According to the police report, a woman he planned on meeting later at the casino floor came into his room, joined by two gunmen.

So did he know the woman before hand or did he meet her after he won?

I'm guessing you should not invite a strange woman to your room that wasn't paying attention to you before your big win.

I don't know much about casinos, but wouldn't they be able to just do a bank transfer?  That seems safer and more straightforward.

This is America. He'll need to collect more than $60k to pay the medical bills that will result from him winning $60k, which won't be covered by the taxes he'll still have to pay on the extra $60k he won.

That sounds about as effective as TSA security theater.

If you win a lot of money in a casino:
1) Check out quickly and quietly.

Do NOT:
Tell your "friends" about it. Some of them obviously weren't his friends.
Have a "party with the guy who won $60,000" party in the casino's hotel. You really are just begging to be robbed.
