    Like most every scam - either stupidly bragging about it or getting extra greedy and pushing the envelope.

    A friend of mind who knew Bob when he worked at Mohegan in CT told me this:

    This same guy came under scrutiny at mohegan 10 years ago
    He was placing comp concert tix in his played Accts and selling them
    He had a lot of good connections there so instead of being fired he resigned

    Using $480 K to get $419 K in return ---- from playing slots ?
    These guys did alright for themselves.
    * There's a part of this scam missing - for security reasons, for sure. *

    I love the reader's comments below the article. The best one called the dealer who exposed this scheme a "narc" for dropping the dime.

    BTW, If you are a smoker, go to the Mohegan Sun, there is no reason to purchase cigarettes, just inhale.

    If I remember correctly some employees at Foxwoods got busted about a year ago for a similar scam, saw players who had free play expiring and created new cards and played it...
    Edit: it was actually 2013

    Why would you give a waitress the PIN for your player's card? Is that how people pay for drinks @ this place?

    418k with only $8k of jackpots sounds pretty impressive to me. This takes grinding to a whole new level.
     
    Only 2nd trip for year :(

    oo

    Yes, you had to give up the pin (no free drinks, unless you earned the privilege due to comps)

    They did the similar thing in MGM in 2009-2010 w/fake players cards.

    Also a few years ago, a Las Vegas Casino (Not going to mention their name)
    Was awarding Free Play/Prizes to players that they knew were not at the casino (or even deceased)
    & haven't been to the casino for a long time, so they could advertise we
    have given out $XXX,000,000 in Free play this year to players,
    yada yada, that they knew the players would never redeem.:grrr:
