This morning at approximately 3:50 a.m. a masked gunman bellied up to the craps table at the Las Vegas Bellagio and demanded $1.5 million. According to FOX LA, "between 12 and 15 gamblers in the area where the robbery occurred proceeded losing their money uninterrupted before, during and after the incident."

The Bellagio was fake robbed back in 2001 without the use of a face-hiding helmet and handgun. He should have studied more. The suspect -- white, male -- fled on his valet-parked motorcycle .

Police suspect the same man in a Dec. 9 robbery of the poker room at the off-strip Suncoast Casino. In both incidents, the bandit wore a black jacket, black pants, black gloves and a white helmet with stripes.
