I am not much of a gambler, except for March Madness. When I think about my next trip to Las Vegas, I try to set a magic amount that I will leave at the casino.
The Jewel City Kiwanis Club was treated to very interesting stories about the casinos not always winning. These stories were provided by Bruce Hinckley, a very experienced certified public accountant. Hinckley, who is the president of the Glendale Noon Kiwanis Club, shared stories from his 15 years of experience as the vice president and corporate controller of Caesars World Inc., parent company of Caesars Palace. He is now retired.
When I walk into a casino, I always think the cameras in the ceiling are watching me give my money away. Hinckley shared stories about how those cameras are watching not just us, but also how casino employees are handling our money.
