'All Men Are Created Equal Except In The Casino' Explains Pit Manager

'All Men Are Created Equal Except In The Casino' Explains Pit ManagerMoney talks, and nowhere is that more true than at a casino where the management extends all types of courtesies to its wealthiest patrons, whilst tolerating all manner of abuse in its attempt to satisfy its big spending customers. As Mohegan Sun pit manager Glen Costales, explains:
“All men are created equal except in the casino. If it’s a premium player, he gets away with a lot more than the five-dollar player would get away with.”
Glen Costales’ revealing statement was made whilst testifying at a tribal gaming commission hearing in support of a Maria DeGiacomo, who earlier this year was fired from her job as a pit boss for permitting a high-roller to place late bets at a blackjack table.
The player in question, Matthew Menchetti, would regularly lose $50,000 a night on visits to the Mohegan Sun, and is believed to have gambled away more than $1 million overall during his frequent visits there. At one stage, however, casino security thought that they noticed suspicious activity involving Menchetti and two dealers, and so requested his arrest by state police, who then later released him with no charge after concluding the dealers were just trying to keep the “whale” happy.
Nevertheless, Maria DeGiacomo lost her job and so is currently fighting her dismissal at her hearing in front of the tribal gaming commission. Meanwhile, Matthew Menchetti has subsequently hired a lawyer to have the gaming commission clear his name of cheating, claiming such indulgence his client was afforded was typical of those given to high-rollers, including the placing of late bets. Other antics Menchetti was permitted included hitting the table, and shouting abuse at the dealers. Commenting on the issue, Las Vegas Transport Workers Union VP Shane Kaufmann, said:
“The casinos pretend they have rules that are set in stone, like going into a bank or dealing with a police station. Are they supposed to allow late bets? Absolutely not. Do they do it all the time? All the time. The abuse, the screaming, the cheating, the sexual harassment. Throwing things around. It’s worse all the time.”
