    Has anyone heard anything about the sports book at South Point getting robbed at gunpoint? Went to their Big Game party yesterday, but left after the game because lines were crazy long. Came back after dinner at the M and they had the front of the sports book taped off. At least 10 security/police were there and no ticket takers. People around the sports book talking about a robbery at gun point, but caught the gunman. Had to leave cause another commotion happened when someone stole a phone and security chased/tackled the man. Too much going on and got out of there. Will go back Monday to cash winning bets. Anybody hear anything about this? Just wondering.

    I believe it was Silverton. I haven't heard anything about South Point.

    It was blocked off last night around 10-10:30 after Super Bowl. I don't think security would be there 1 week later.

    yeah...the robbery occurred after the game....I didn't see it, but I heard others talking about it. the sport book was packed, all the seats were taken 3-4 hours before the game.
    most of the seats were reserved simply by putting your stuff on the seat or others used paper saying its taken. also, brent musburger was there in a glass booth talking to a radio station and there were young hotties giving out free bags to people. Ok...next year going to go to the sport book and reserve a seat early!
    I ended up at a small bar next to the elevators to the parking garage, the TV's were big enough and luckily they turned the volume up high. I almost saw a fight there, an older guy (drunk) got into it with a guy sitting next to him; he got right in his face and called him an expletive...luckily the guy was calm and didn't want to fight...lot of action at the SP super bowl, great game and almost saw a live brawl about to happen.

    I was at the watching party at the South Point, and cashed my one ticket around 9 P.M., must have been shortly before this happened. We left there around 9:15 I think.

    We watched the game from South Point's grand ballroom. After cashing in our tickets, we went up to Baja Miguel's for dinner and were still up there when the robbery occurred. We left around 9:30, but the restaurants are so close to the parking garage entrance that we weren't anywhere near the book. I had no clue until I saw the post this afternoon.

    It looks like they got the guy on this one.

    With all of the people around, I'm very surprised they try robbing casinos.

    Very few robbers are Rhode scholars.
