If Ocean’s 11 taught us anything, it’s that it’s really, really, really hard to rob a Las Vegas casino. And that it’s even harder to rob one, and not get gunned down by an angry security guard or Andy Garcia. All in all, marching into the MGM Grand and absconding with a whole pile of cash seems like a whole lot more difficult of a way to get a few bucks out of a casino than, say hitting the Roulette table here at Silver Oak. But that’s exactly what a guy did on Friday night.

According to reports, the man walked into the high-limit slots area at the MGM Grand and demanded money. Because he had a gun, the cashier wisely complied with his request and handed over some loot. And that’s when the thief undertook his brilliant and wily escape plan. He hurried out of the casino, hopped on a motorcycle, and drove off into the sunset. And maybe they eventually will catch him, but they haven’t so far. Now, call me crazy, but I would have thought that casinos might anticipate a criminal mastermind trying the old walk-out-of-the-casino-and-drive-away plan. So basically they have better security at convenience stores. At least when someone robs a 7/11 they can lock the criminal in the store after he robs the place.

Of course, even if it is easy, I don’t recommend anyone try this at home. But I do recommend trying to take our casino for a few bucks by cashing in a nice, big deposit bonus. See all our current bonus codes and promotions here.
