What Happens in The West Stays In The West. 2005-11-23
The state Division of Gaming Enforcement has given their recommendation. They have asked New Jersey's chief casino regulatory agency to blacklist two cheaters. The slot machine cheaters, Sean McAndrew, 64, of Long Beach, Calif., and Eugene Bulgarino, 72, of Peoria, Ariz., were convicted in the late 1990ís in Las Vegas for just this, but havenít been barred from Atlantic City casinos.
These are the same men that swindled more than $6 million from Las Vegas casinos in the late 1990s. DGE Director Thomas Auriemma recommended that they be barred from all casinos. This wasnít a small thing it was a major scam, and should be stopped fro ma second time hit.
The two were part of a ring of thieves who hit the Luxor, Sahara, Excalibur, Rio and Harrah's casinos from September 1996 to November 1997. Auriemmaís agency filed a petition in order to make this possible. Both have access to do this again, but in another location.
McAndrew, who has twice served time for Las Vegas slot machines fraud. He was released last December, and no one knows if he will be back to his old tricks. Bulgarino was sentenced to four years in prison for his part. This consisted of obtaining parts from slot machine manufacturers to manipulate machines. He would then recruit people to claim the bogus jackpots. He is not out and around, but more so Atlantic City is worried about McAndrew.
They donít have any knowledge he's in Atlantic City, or heading that way, but they want to protect themselves. They just want to take the temptation away, but blacklisting him. In order to so this The State Casino Control Commission must vote on whether to put McAndrew and Bulgarino on the list. So far the black list for Atlantic City has 171 people on it.
