|Cheating Craps Dealer|
Eventually a video review of one table game caught the craps-cheating act, and then other videos going back a week revealed several repetitions of the passing-off-chips scam.
Police were called in to interrogate Thompson, who was subsequently placed under arrest and charged wtih several felonies including theft, cheating, swindling and conspiracy.
My take: This is a prime example of someone throwing out an entire casino career for not much more than a bag of peanuts. If he had two partners during this seven-day cheat-episode and they were equal three-way partners, Thompson's take would have been a mere $500. And even if the scam had gone on for several weeks before that (casino videos are usually erased after a seven-day period), maybe he made a few grand.
But now he'll never work in a casino again, will have a criminal record and maybe even serve some prison time.
