Barney Vinson's World

5 August 2000

Here's a story I blatantly lifted from the pages of Anthony Curtis' Las Vegas Advisor. Well, Anthony won't care. He's the publisher of my book Casino Secrets, and we're just like brothers. (We fight all the time.)

Australian billionaire Kerry Packer was playing baccarat at the Bellagio. An Asian gambler at the next table was making a lot of noise, hollering loudly whenever he won and hollering louder whenever he lost. Finally, Packer walked over to the next table and asked the man to tone it down. "Do you realize who I am?" the man bellowed. "I'm worth thirty million dollars!" Packer studied the man for a moment, then said, "Tell you what. I'll flip you for it."

A lady approached an elderly dealer in a large casino. "Excuse me," she said. "How do you get out of here?"

The dealer replied ruefully, "Lady, I've been trying to figure that out for the last fifteen years."
