Last month four Las Vegas casino employees were accused of forging documents and stealing money from the Planet Hollywood Casino in conjunction with what is now being called the Planet Hollywood Poker Room Scheme.
The casino employee’s arrested include Jason Peterson, Thomas Kordick, Johnathan Sanner and Scott Marshall all taken into custody on August 21, 2009 by the Nevada Gaming Control Board investigators.
The Planet Hollywood casino employees worked in the poker room as dealers and supervisors and were accused of creating false documents for jackpot winnings and splitting the money amongst themselves.
Local police have stated that these employees worked together to cheat money out of the casino by using a paper trail.
The State Gaming Control Board stated that several times in August the employees claimed jackpots for high hands that were never won. The employees forged the signatures of false players and took home money in the thousands.
The notorious four were charged with conspiracy, forgery and theft. Planet Hollywood staff members together abused the casinos high hand bonus. If a poker player won the high hand bonus, no harm, no foul… the bonus was paid, and play continued as usual…
However, if no one won the high hand bonus, it appears the casino’s staff members were allegedly tempted to create their own winners, file the paperwork, and chop the pot, so to speak
According to news reports, authorities were tipped off by a casino whistle blower.
