Share Article

Prominent Las Vegas attorney Bob Nersesian outlines what should be known by every person who sets foot in a casino. The book discusses patron rights and how to deal with casino employees who abuse those rights.

Bob Nersesian of Las Vegas is the nation’s premier attorney when it comes to legal actions against casinos for patron abuse. Bob’s new book, Beat the Players -- Casinos, Cops and the Game Inside the Game should be read by everyone who sets foot in a casino -- average casino patrons, skilled players, casino employees, and anyone else. It should be required reading for police officers, regulators, other public officials, and attorneys who may represent any of the aforementioned.

Casino abuse of patrons occurs more than you might think. In reality, casino security guards have no more authority than other non-law enforcement individuals; they are just casino employees who sometimes legally carry weapons. Security guards often detain, handcuff, harass, or threaten law-abiding winning patrons. The guards have no fear of personal repercussions for their crimes, because the authorities refuse to prosecute these errant casino employees.

In an enjoyable writing style, Nersesian discusses patron rights and the many ways the casinos have trampled on those rights. The true accounts of player abuse are outrageous and compelling. The reports of large jury awards casinos have had to pay for wrongful acts committed against patrons show that casinos can be beaten in court, even in Nevada. Cases discussed include Nevada and other jurisdictions.
