Stephen Paddock

The Las Vegas gunman stayed free-of-charge in 2 luxurious adjoining hotel suites because he was a high-stakes gambler who spent up to $100,000 an hour in the hotel’s casino.

Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino comped 2 rooms for Stephen Paddock, 64, who killed 58 people and injured 489 at a country music festival on Sunday, Oct. 1.

Police say Paddock constructed 2 platforms in his posh sniper’s nest on the hotel’s 32nd floor to fire high-powered rifles into the crowd of 23,000 down below.

Clark County, Nevada Sheriff Joe Lombardo believes Paddock had an accomplice. Hotel receipts shows Paddock had at least one guest who visited him in his suite. Authorities are working to determine the identity of the guest.

The retiree managed to smuggle 13 large suitcases and golf bags containing 23 guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition into the rooms without attracting suspicion from the hotel staff.

A person who has seen Paddock’s hotel receipts tells UK’s Daily Mail that Paddock stayed for free in the 1,705 sq. ft. suite that typically rents for $500-$600 a night.

The insider said Paddock avoided detection by exploiting the fact that the hotel staff changes shifts every 8 hours.

Comping hotel rooms to high-stakes gamblers to keep the money flowing is common practice in Las Vegas. Some of the perks include a free stay in $35,000-a-night villas, free plane tickets, limos, butlers and even high priced escorts.

Eric Paddock

Paddock’s brother Eric, pictured, tells the Mail that Paddock wasn’t at that level. Eric said his brother gambled enough to score free rooms and $1,000 sushi meals.

A former boyfriend of one of Paddock’s girlfriend’s sisters, Adam Le Fevre, told NBC News that Paddock was a “methodical casino gambler who used algorithms and spreadsheets” to game the system.

An expert who is familiar with high-stakes gamblers say Paddock was what the casinos refer to as a “premium mass” player — one who bets in high amounts with a better understanding of the game than the typical player.

“Vegas is full of people that are basically just gambling for free,” said Michael Shackleford, who runs a gambling strategy website called The Wizard of Odds. “I think the shooter was one of these people who was basically milking the system, getting free vacations.”




  • Platoon

    Are you going to report on the eye-witnesses who stated that there were multiple shooters?

  • Phillybruh

    So in other words, they are no closer to a reason than they were the night he did it. And just refuse to say he did this because He’s white and can come and go as he pleases without question.

  • thrift.store.jungle

    we’re still not calling this white monster a terrorist, hunh?

  • You Could Never

    In most hotels there is no night housekeeping staff. In a hotel that size there are probably 75 during the day and maybe 15-20 at night. And they sure as hell not gonna say shit. They want to deliver your extra towels and keep it pushin.

    A lot of people don’t know that, hun.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Set Up he was set up. Got a free room whoever did it did what needed to be done then he got killed so that he won’t be able to say anything.

    Many witnesses went on CNN and other news outlets saying shots were coming from different places.
    How was a burrito eater able to brake a Hurricane Proof Window??
    Why thry keep showing pics of him with eye closed and a shot glass in his hand?
    So many questions so many “conspiracies”

  • Yardgirl

    Girl even low stakes gambler too. My sis won a lil some some in Atlantic City several years ago and every month since she gets an offer for a free one to two night stay! I go with her and hang out at the fabulous outlets while she gambles. I am no fool LOL!!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It’s right there in the post tags, hun.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    If he was spending 100,000 per hour then he DID pay for his rooms.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    There were no multiple shooters. People make mistakes in the midst of chaos.

  • stav

    You’ve got that right!

  • Harley

    In your heading ??? That is what gets people’s attention and YOUR CLICKS

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    A friend sent me a video of a flashing strobe light on the 4th floor. She said that was evidence of a 2nd shooter. I asked her, “Where’s the broken glass on the 4th floor?” She didn’t respond.

    Conspiracy theorists don’t think things through to a logical conclusion. They think they know more than the experts.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I used to work with engineers (young men) who gambled using algorithms like this devil did. They would go to AC on a weekend and get comp rooms they would beat the house in shifts. Some of the craziest people are the best at mathematical statistics…

  • You Could Never

    And this fool up top was an accountant. Numbers were his life.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Yup I do too AC stay giving out comp rooms if you win over a certain amount of money. I love the outlets in AC but once you turn that corner its like your in the middle of skid row smh…

  • You Could Never

    We havent paid for a room in AC since 2003 lol. My sister and BIL just got back from Vegas from Labor Day. Free rooms and discounted airfare. BIL is a gambler. A big one.

  • Mrs.Meenie

    The only reasons I am getting from all these news stories as to why he did this was b/c he was rich and bored.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Agreed. They all spread their legs for money. Nothing high class about that. Thanks for the edit Sandra!

  • stav

    Exactly!

  • Yardgirl

    Girrrl we made the mistake of GPS-ing the nearest McDonalds (for my lil cousin) and ended up at the one IN skid row. We were surrounded by drug addicts and “ladies of the night”. I was like ummm, let’s get back to car right quick!! And this was in the daytime!! We went to one right by the outlets, phew.

    Yes my girlfriend gets round trip for 100.00 and free room. How you gotta spend to get that. I like shoes, dresses and blouses too much. Did I mention a bag.

  • Coy little wink

    Lemme guess…..he probably shot the window out?

    Also the shots echoed off the tall buildings which could make people think there was more than one shooter…

  • Kanyade

    his rooms, your rooms, my rooms, my niece’s rooms, my future godchildren’s rooms, etc. lol

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I did the same thing looking for the Dunkin Donuts!!! I clutched my purse so hard to my chest when I went in lol. Its a shame the city looks like that… there’s nothing but check cashing places and liquor stores on every corner smh…

    He shot out, busted out, aint that hard to do if he can make semi automatic weapons into automatic weapons…he use to have a pilots license too. He shot out two windows…went to the other one to get a better shot….nothing Sherlock holmes need to figure out.

    No that’s very common….but that’s probably gone change now…

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You’re right. The sonic sound of the bullets followed closely by the actual sound of gunfire and bullets skipping off the ground and other surfaces. All of those sounds distorted by the acoustics of tall buildings would seem like a dozen shooters.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Not your readers tho, we be smart….LOL

  • Justlooknout

    The hospital where he was delivered.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Do I have to call him a terrorist in every headline?

  • Breitbart_Savior

    I’m sorry. This just does not pass the sniff test.

  • hottlanta

    Waiting on Dump to sign the domestic c terrorist act bill. This will be the perfect time for him to do it. Been on his desk for several days. They will call him a terrorist when they call the white guy who stole that sign in North Korea a thief. Don’t hold your breath.

  • hottlanta

    I know right. EXCEL spreadsheets for gamblers. Who would have thought such a thing existed.

  • hottlanta

    They gonna interview the seed that planted him. One thing I did learn from Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky is the shelf life of a sperm when they showed that stain on the dress still viable after all those years. They might try to analyze that to see why did he do it.

  • hottlanta

    Ladies of the night. Haven’t heard that in ages. How old are you again? I remember I called the flight attendant a stewardess and folks were rolling and I still call Macys, Rich’s.

    Really. Rich’s was known for their cakes, They had s salon called Soul Scissor’s which was always packed on the weekend. It was a treat to go. We made it an event. I remember getting some bomb deals on the fifth floor called Finale on Five. They got something now call Backpage and the prices are good. I went to the one at Stonecrest Mall and had to leave before I spend some money. We would get dressed up and go on the weekend and have a ball.

  • free

    they acting like this n*gga is schwarzenegger, john wick, and rambo combined. i don’t think i’m buying it.however, with all those videos he had set up, the hotel would have to be complicit if this were a conspiracy.

  • NeverSurprised

    Why does the liberal media ignore ISIS’s continued claims that he converted to Islam six months ago?

    In the latest publication of their Al-Naba online magazine,
    http://www.newsweek.com/isis-las-vegas-shooter-stephen-paddock-muslim-six-months-massacre-679295
    they state that Paddock, whom ISIS calls Abu Abdul Barr al-Amriki, “converted to Islam six months ago,” and further state:

    “A soldier of the caliphate attacked a gathering of 22,000 Americans at a concert in the city of Las Vegas, resulting in nearly 60 killed and 600 injured.”

    “Brother Abu Abdul Bar stationed himself in a room on the 32nd floor of a hotel overlooking the concert and opened fire continuously on the crowds using 23 firearms and more than 2,000 bullets and died, may God accept him, after running out of ammunition”.

    Everything about this horrific crime screams bloody Islam. The fact that he scouted other venues with audiences entirely different from those he ultimately killed indicates that he simply wanted to kill Americans, ANY Americans.

    There is also the material found in the car that could have resulted in a car bomb, one of the Islamic State’s favorite methods. It kills the leftist media to admit that Muslins may once again be proven to be heartless killing machines, so they ignore the FOUR statements that ISIS has now released (either directly or through their news organization, Amaq) taking credit for the killings. ISIS risks great damage to their credibility in the Muslim world if they are lying. THEY ARE NOT.

  • Justlooknout

    I partial agree, I do be believe his methods was copied from extremist methods. He had help and he was Insane. But he was also a heavy drinker. Many gamblers keep a cup in there hand (raises my cup) . We aren’t going to know the truth.

    I can say that white folks speaking and being extra friendly. We are all the same our blood bleeds red.

  • Justlooknout

    cheap slot, but how much they spending? I can’t spend more than 100 per visit and I only go every 3 to 6 months. More than that…..It taking from mandatory spending.

  • 2gr8ful

    Trust me the suits are coming. They are going to have a blame for this. Probably how the hotel surveillance didn’t pick up on him taking all those bags in the room from the car even if he spaced it out.

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_
  • Renee26

    Must be nice to be able to work the system like that

  • Elevated Soul

    Drop that truth!!!…..Liberal media/ Fake news ignores the claims of ISIS because ISIS play into the agenda of the globalists.

    Stephen Paddock became a radical long ago.Liberal Media/Fake News fed into his radicalization. Liberal Media/Fake News created Antifa which was right up Stephen Paddock alley.

    Stephen Paddock then became Abu Abdul Barr al-Amriki after his affiliation with ISIS.The supposed lone killer last “legal higher paying job was 30 years ago with Lockheed. Lately he’d been an accountant which allegedly made him a “millionaire”….Some have suggested that either he was gun runner/agent or he was “washing that dirty money”.

    There are several videos floating around that suggest that there were multiple shooters.There are videos that show fire from gun on lower floor.There was also someone on the ground.There were reports by multiple people that “an Hispanic woman and man” were telling people they were going to “die tonight”,so they knew about the plot by Antifa and ISIS.He was said to have been found with a lot of Antifa literature. It also has been claimed that the man was some sort of Arms Dealer too. His girlfriend used two different social security numbers.

    While anything is possible and clearly he was involved,I also believe he was set up and eventually killed by one of his accomplices….

    To my truth seekers….Dig deeper than Fake News.

  • Elevated Soul

    The 4th floor windows open…Infact in many hotels where the windows looked uniformed,there will be some on the lower floors that will open………..Clearly there were two windows busted out on the 32nd floor but it’s been stated the alarm should have sounded but it didn’t.

  • Platoon

    Aside from that video, did you watch the video from the cab driver who was outside the Mandalay? You heard distant shots and upclose shots – signifying that there were multiple shooters.

    The question that you asked your friend was fair. Let’s say that vid is authentic. Do you ponder what if they’re purposely not showing this in the media? Do you trust mainstream media?

    Didn’t get notified that you responded…thanks for getting back to me:)
