I expect the casino to be a little more savvy than the average rube.
You would think so, but then again "I though anyone could see that" is each con mans usual defense.
If I walk into a baccarat room and complain that they aren't using my favorite Frobozz Magic Playing Cards with an official Frobozz Magic Card Shuffler and dealing them from a certified Frobozz Magic Baccarat Shoe, I expect to be unceremoniously thrown out.
But I guess I'm naive when it comes to the world of high-stakes gambling, huh.
Yes. Greed and being afraid to lose that high-stakes gambler. And again, as in every fraud, they work best when the victim himself thinks he is conning the actual fraudster.
I noticed that according to the summary, he had to pay back his "win", but no charges for fraud were even mentioned. I think the judge couldn't put his opinion on casino ethics more clearly...
