  1. I used to fix the machines in casinos that act like atms, break bills or to cash out you winnings with. Every time I worked on a machine I had a security guard, cage manager and they had to announce it to the the back office security who were watching on camera. Also had to have a gaming license.

  3. 2:54 another thing about casinos are if someone were to win a big amount like that it would stop table play completely while the pit boss came, checked, verified, counted, etc

  4. What I'd want to know, if someone was counting (not cheating the game) would you allow them to keep their chips but just tell them they aren't allowed to play, in this case blackjack, anymore

  5. Maybe if he stopped judging movies set in the past by today's standards he would give some higher ratings

  6. this guy is great especially when he drags oceans 11 but I think he definitely has had dealings with the mob

  7. Nothing really to say, but I enjoyed this video. Thanks for making and sharing it.

  8. The oceans movies are like my favourite and he completely destroyed them. ☹ Ah well, I can just turn my brain off when I watch them.

  9. The salt under the table has leaked over to the service industry; if you put salt around a table of campers, within 15 minutes, they're up and out the place.

    Has worked every time since hearing this urban legend

  10. I was the 21 dealer in "the Hangover", and I worked in a casino (Venetian) at the time. I was in the business for almost 25 years. I have to say that our scene was more realistic than you give it credit. The movie is a farce, so of course some of it isn't real, like all the attention on the table. But the dealer calling out "splitting fives" is exactly what we do when something strange happens. The scene is so realistic, that you had to point out the pit boss & floorman wouldn't hide their mouths, which is true. But nitpicking. I'd like to be the expert on these casino things.

  11. amazing so everything is unrealistic because they didnt use a technology they didnt have or was bad in time of making the movie…very helpful

  12. 2:44 i have never thought about it but rusty (brad) wins $4.5m right there on one hand of dice :p (15×$10k=$150k×30=$4.5m)

  13. I like how he causally tossed in “NSA SCIF”….this guy has worked with the alphabet boys before.

  14. I love how if you just count cards as an individual and keep winning you're not welcome, but if you lose all the time your very welcome. Gambling should be outlawed.

  15. In college I was on a card counting team. The "we're sorry you're too good for us" speech is very real.

    The reality is not very glamorous: card counting sticks out like a sore thumb and nearly every dealer and pit boss could tell we were counting (some would even chat with us when we were). None of them cared unless a computer system somewhere said we won too much money and needed to be cut off.
