Card player uses security system to rip off casino

Cameras are everywhere.

A wealthy gambler at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia turned a casino's own surveillance system against itself.

The gambler was a "whale", or someone who gambles huge amounts of money. An accomplice got access to the casino's high-resolution security cameras and sent the information to the player, who was playing a high-stakes card game.

I assume the camera was trained on the dealer to prevent the dealer from cheating, and instead helped the player.

In eight hands of cards, the player won $32 million.

After the scam was uncovered, the player was kicked out of the villa where he and his family were staying.

The casino believes it can recover the money.
