Mark Bowden:

But the story was even bigger than that. Johnson’s assault on the Tropicana was merely the latest in a series of blitzes he’d made on Atlantic City’s gambling establishments. In the four previous months, he’d taken $5 million from the Borgata casino and another $4 million from Caesars. Caesars had cut him off, he says, and then effectively banned him from its casinos worldwide.

Amazing story about how this guy won a ton of money playing blackjack without counting cards. It’s nice to see someone take advantage of the casinos for once.
