Dancing Gambler Costs Caesars Palace Casino $250K Fine

Casinos are famous for having a strict set of rules and etiquette which customers are expected to respect.
This applies even more so to the game of baccarat, which tends to attract the classier, high stakes patrons of the casino and, as one casino source puts it:
“Baccarat is, indeed, a high class game…when it comes to Baccarat just play a little reserved, especially when you first get there.”
However, that piece of advise seems to have been overlooked by not only one particular customer, but the whole of the Caesars Palace casino security team in Las Vegas, last October.
As it read on the State Of Nevada’s regulators’ complaint report; “The patron climbed onto the baccarat table from his chair, walked on his baccarat table and placed baccarat wagers before returning to stand on his chair and eventually sitting.”
Moreover, the high stakes gambler was allowed to do this on at least three occasions and even perform a dance, all under the eyes of the casino managers.
As a result of their inaction, Caesars Palace has been levied with a $250K fine by the Nevada’s Gaming Control Board for not protecting the game or its customers.
Caesars Palace, however, do not appear to be too upset by the decision which begs the question how much the player was losing at the time for them to have overlooked his incredible breech of baccarat etiquette with his dancing Shenanigans.
