    Thanks for the link, I just skimmed through but it looks like it can be a good read.

    Did I read one of his responses correctly where he seemed to imply (wink wink) that they had cameras planted inside the blackjack tables? :wink2:

    Q: Are there really cameras everywhere? Bathrooms and bedrooms too? How many cameras were there in your casino and how many people does it take to monitor everything?

    A: By law, there were no cameras in any bathrooms or bedrooms. That also goes for 99% of all casinos.
    I can't give you an exact number of people that monitored the cameras (it's in the single digits), but there were 3000+ cameras on property. You wouldn't flare your nostrils on the gaming floor without a camera seeing it.



    Q: Honestly, are any of the games rigged in anyway? BJ for example? Also once there is a rule that if the BJ table gets wet they shut down and clean it up. Are there sensors under the table? Thanks.

    A: No, but there may be ((cough)) cameras closer than you think ((cough)) watching your every move.
