A man wearing a motorcycle helmet entered the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas on Tuesday, December 14, 2010. He pulled out his gun at the window where the chips were maintained. He escaped with $1.5 million dollars in chips! In the movie “Ocean’s Eleven”, the Bellagio Hotel is robbed by George Clooney, Brad Pitt and his crew.
Bellagio Chips May Be Worthless!
As indicated earlier, the robber received Bellagio chips and not money. Although these chips can be used at the Bellagio Hotel, the robber will have difficulty in converting these chips into money. To start with, these chips are very rarely circulated. The Bellagio has notified all of it’s cashiers, pit bosses and other employees of the robbery. The Bellagio security personnel will certainly be on the lookout for anyone trying to cash in large amounts of chips in the future. Within the chips is a tiny electronic devise that will allow the Bellagio Hotel to track the chips.
The police believe the same individuals that robbed the Bellagio Hotel also stole $20,000 in chips from the Las Vegas Sun Coast Hotel the same day. The casino industry in Las Vegas has some of the most sophisticated security devices in the world to deal with robberies.
For now, the exploits of George Clooney and Brad Pitt’s crew in Ocean’s Eleven have made a terrific movie about robbing the Bellagio Hotel. Unfortunately, it was a fairy tale!
