A Craps scam costs the Bellagio over $1 million

For nearly two years, Bellagio craps dealers James R. Cooper Jr. (43), and Mark M. Branco (42) worked together with friends; Jeffrey D. Martin (38), and Anthony G. Granito, (49), to scam the Bellagio on the Craps table. To avoid raising suspicion, Martin and Granito would place a few real bets, then they would place phantom or unclear bets while muttering some Craps wager. Cooper Jr. or Branco would then pay Martin and Granito as if they had won the phantom wager. The scam took place at low end Craps tables because the high end Craps tables are more closely monitored. It wasn’t until a suspicious dealer noticed something unusual and notified casino management, that the Bellagio started investigating, while keeping a close eye on the crooked Craps dealers and their two friends. As a result of the investigation, James R. Cooper Jr., Mark M. Branco, Jeffrey D. Martin and Anthony G. Granito were named in a 60 count indictment with charges including; cheating at gambling and theft. The charges could see the suspects jailed for decades.
