Las Vegas has always been identified with organized crime and it probably always will be. It all began with Benjamin 'Bugsy' Siegel and his mob friends arriving in Las Vegas in the early 1940's opening the Flamingo hotel-casino. Then along came Sam Giancana from Chicago, he took control of the Riviera, Sands and Desert Inn. Skimming from the count rooms was in full force during these tenures. Al Glick owner of the Stardust and Fremont, more skimming. Carl Thomas, a top executive at the Tropicana...skimming from the count room.
I started working in casinos in the 1970's and continued in casinos until 2006. I saw a lot!
