Philadelphia, in my opinion, is a much rougher town than New York is now or at least their residents seem more inclined to do something stupid, but even in that city attempting to rob a casino or its patrons have become a big mistake. Shortly after the Sugar House casino became operational a pair of thugs followed an unlucky man home beat him in an attempt to alleviate him of his slot machine winnings. Within a few hours that faces of the assailants were all over the web. In a post 9/11 New York City there is no way that a brand new casino is going to be built without the top surveillance equipment in the world watching every corner of the establishment. A thief can try rob a person by mugging them, but it is likely to be a major mistake and there is likely to be some eye in the sky that will get a positive ID on their faces.
