Casinos, including SugarHouse, take steps to protect big winners, and robberies of successful gamblers are rare, said Joe Weinert, a senior vice president at Spectrum Gaming Group.

"Casinos are going to do their best to take care of their customers," he said. "It's in their best interest to make sure something like this doesn't happen."

Weinert said that walking out of a casino with cash winnings is no different from leaving a bank with a large withdrawal or a jewelry store with a "big rock."

"You have to be careful," he said. "Bragging about your winnings, it might make you feel good for that evening, but there are preyers in the casino."
