The satisfaction that you receive from watching it, and the happiness it puts on individuals’s faces– for me, there’s nothing like that.”

Judge sets bail in Bellagio $1 million craps scheme

A judge set bail for 2 guys implicated of tricking more than $1 million from the craps tables at Bellagio.

The alleged ring-leader of the plan, Mark M. Branco, 42, appeared prior to District Judge Valerie Adair in prison fatigues and shackles. He was purchased hung on $160,000 bail. His brother-in-law, Jeffrey D. Martin, 38, was provided a $125,000 bail, and permitted time to come up with the cash while out of prison.

A third offender, Anthony G. Granito, 49, suffered chest pains last week when he learned of the 60-count indictment versus him and was undergoing triple coronary bypass at the time of Tuesday’s hearing. Another guy, James R. Cooper Jr., 43, a previous Bellagio dealership, is cooperating with authorities and is anticipated to plead guilty on Thursday.

Prosecutors said that for almost 2 years, a pair of Bellagio craps dealerships and two buddies stole more than $1 million off the tables.

Theodore Whiting, the vice president of security for MGM Resorts, told a grand jury that the opportunity of the group winning as much as they did totaled up to roughly one in 452 billion.

Each of the men were prosecuted on lots of counts of cheating at gambling and theft, according to Chief Deputy District Lawyer J. P. Raman. But Cooper is expected to plead guilty to one count of felony theft.

Between July 2012 and July 2014, when the timing corrected, Branco and Cooper conspired with Granito and Martin to pay off bets that never transpired, the prosecutor said.

Due to the fact that the craps table is typically crowded with base dealers, a boxman, a stickman, a floor person and other gamers, there needed to be a “extremely select set of circumstances that needed to line up for them to manage,” Raman stated.

They would focus on lower limits at tables with dealerships who weren’t paying enough focus on the action.

Granito and Martin would make some actual bets, however mutter some sort of craps wager as the dice were tossed and Cooper or Branco would pay them “as if they had actually banked on it,” Raman said.

But in 2014, a fellow dealership noticed suspicious behavior and informed Bellagio management and an examination began. Cooper told authorities the group had been running the fraud for about 2 years, and Bellagio began tracking the records of the players.

Throughout their play, Granito collected almost $700,000 while Martin collected more than $800,000, according to Raman.

The district attorney said authorities have “mathematical, statistical analysis of the improbability of them having the ability to attain the outcomes they did.”
