~ Movie star Libby Montgomery lost her earrings worth half a million. She found the earrings but did not stop the insurance claim she had initiated. Lloyd Bentley the Insurance Agent arrived with $500,000 in a briefcase, but then accosted Libby. Bouncer/former boxer Rudy Bellini defended her and beat the man to death; he buried the body in the desert. Libby kept the money and hid it in her suite. Casino Accountant Bobby de Faro stole most of her cash, with plans to pay off the Casino’s large debt to Uncle Tony, head of the Family.
~ An Insurance Investigator named Orrin Groat arrived and began asking questions. In separate incidents, both Uncle Tony and Bobby beat the stranger - without knowing who he was or why he was there. Rudy buried another body in the desert.
~ Libby had agreed to a long engagement to Rudy in order to keep their secret about Lloyd. Rudy surprised her with a wedding ceremony, but she stalled and did not sign the license. Rudy revealed the Casino had a Life Insurance policy on him that, in the event of his demise - would pay two million to the Casino, or to his widow if he was married.
~ Demoting several people, crime boss Uncle Tony took over daily management of the Casino. He was unhappy to learn from his girlfriend Peggy Sue, the new accounting apprentice - that staff had been skimming profits. Entertainment Director Vincent Martino, Casino Accountant Bobby de Faro, Former boss Joey Calligari and card dealer Frankie were all guilty of stealing cash or messing with the books - and feared for their lives. They were aware that cashing in cousin Rudy’s Life Insurance policy would more than repay the debt.
~ FBI Agent Mac Ranker recently arrived at the Hotel to investigate the murders of Groat and Bentley. Both bodies had both been found in the desert, with evidence leading to the Casino.
