If he gambled as much as they are saying he gambled in all the places he is said to have gambled at in Las Vegas, how is it that other gamblers in Las Vegas have never seen or heard of him as far as I can tell?
Those photos seem to indicate this Lisa was much more than just a former employee. In some, the two are posed like a married couple. Of course, some women and some men just like to hug, and will hug anyone at anytime if they could.
I’m sure she is shocked. She thought she knew all about him.
Maybe she did know Stephen Paddock as he was back then, back before something shook his life apart and distorted his sense of humanity.
Yes I agree appears to be pretty chummy, and older in one of the pictures so friendship spanned several years and said watched movies so had to have spent some time together.
Not sure where taken but perhaps one in a high rise Hotel
It is alleged that he primarily play video poker which deosn't require much social interaction.
With Video poker, the "house take" is approximately only 2%.
There is some conjecture that he may have been using casino gambling as a way to 'launder' or 'wash' money arising from possibly illegal activities.
He played video poker.
Not all millionaires look like Hollyweird types
Bingo. High rollers are pretty well known within the gambling community. Nobody has said anything about him.
They can't spend their money on clothes or anything they can't sell quickly. I don't care how much money they have they live on the edge and they think everyone is out to get them...they think that because that's the way they are.
Often true. He also may not have wanted to look wealthy for many different reasons. He may have wanted to blend in and be less noticeable, if he was in casinos as much as they say.
People may not be telling the truth about that though is one of my points. Someone else may have gambled using his players cards too.
Apparently you've never heard of The Millionaire Next Door You should read it, very insightful look into the habits of the wealthy. Available for free at your local library.
Very body should read it give very good insight.
Although I have read that knowledgeable video poker players can make money on comps and not lose too much or even make a little I don’t think he could make much money on video poker. Very unlikely.
That is why I think that he 'washed' money from 'ill gotten gains', and was not a heavy better.
His intent was to wash the money at the casino and get additional complimentary credits, not necessarily to win more money, as most other people would try to do.
Don't forget that he had used "complementary credits" to secure several of his room rentals .
In my business dealings I have known a couple of millionaires who’s first impression on me was that of a guy needing a handout.
In addition to my reply 11 where I did take care to acknowledge the validity of your point I wanted to say this, though I still wish to pay respect to the validity of your point.
Paddock seems like a caricature of a gambler. Excessive not spending on clothes and teeth for example.
Many gamblers may be like that, but they don’t have the money he had and act like that to that extent usually. They could though.
He may have been trying to hide this:
There is one video with a list of all of the casino hotels he is said to have frequented, the list is extensive.
Have to wonder if other players may have gambled using playercards with his name at times.
That is true and kind of funny, (though the whole Las Vegas incident isn’t funny).
It is a good observation.
