I was dealing blackjack in the back of the casino next to the bar on a really slow day. I had nothing to do so I would watch people play on the slot machines while I wait for a player to sit down at my table. I started watching this guy play on a slot machine next to me and he was down to $10 in the machine. He stopped playing, tilted his chair forward (so to save his spot) and then walked to the restrooms. While he was in the bathroom another man walked over to the slot machine, took the $10 out and walked away. The slot player came back from the bathroom and when he saw that his $10 was gone he went crazy. He ran to our pit and screamed at my floorman, “Help! I’ve been mugged; call security!” My floorman hadn’t seen what happened so he thought the guy actually did get mugged. He picked up the phone, called security and security came running over. When the slot player told the security guard what happened the guard gave him a nasty look and said, “Wait; if you were stupid enough to leave your money in a slot machine and go to the bathroom, what did you expect? I can’t help you from your own stupidity.” The slot player was so furious that he started punching the security guard in the face. He got in a good first punch but then the security guard threw him down and used a taser on him. The slot player ended up going to jail for assault, all over $10. That cost him bail, a trip back to Las Vegas for his court date and a hefty fine. That $10 mistake cost him a few hundred dollars at least.
