The Associated Press headline reads:
Man passes out in casino; is robbed of $230 in winnings.

CHESTER, Pa. (AP, May 30) – A man passed out in a suburban Philadelphia casino and then, police say, was robbed of his winnings by another gambler. The 60-year-old man was collecting his slot machine winnings at Harrah’s in Chester on Thursday when police say he blacked out.

So. . . . I guess the robber got to this man’s cash before the casino could!  The difference here: The casino has a state license to steal but this customer doesn’t!  (Think about it: Why do you think they call slot machines one-armed bandits?)
