An Oceans 11-type heist at a casino in Australia has been pulled off... sort of. According to a report posted today at Times of India, the Oceans 11-type heist was happened at the Crown Casino, which is Australia's largest casino.
The article says a "foreign high roller," who was staying at the casino was "implicated in the rip-off, in which the venue's security cameras were used to spy for him. A staff member has also been entangled in the Ocean's Eleven-style heist."
The infiltration allowed the gambler to defraud the casino for about $33 million, but Sources claim the cheater was "exposed over eight hands of cards played in a short space of time." Once the scam was uncovered, authorities were alerted, an investigation began, and the man who attempted the heist was "booted out" of his villa at Crown Towers during the night.
The man, who reportedly wins and loses huge amounts, was served a withdrawal of licence notice which prohibits him from entering the Crown Casino premises. Reports say the man has likely returned to his home country. The VIP services manager believed to have been assigned to "look after" the gambler has been fired.
The heist is believed to be the biggest perpetrated on Crown since it opened 19 years ago.
