Casino exec: Paddock would make $100 bets for hours

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) - An executive casino host described Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock as an analytical gambler who would try to identify video poker machines most likely to provide big pay-offs.     

Host John Weinreich at the Atlantis Casino Resort and Spa in Reno, Nevada, said Paddock would sit for hours, placing bets of $100 or more, rarely interacting with anyone but always conscious of his surroundings and who was winning.     

Weinreich said Paddock's girlfriend Marilou Danley once worked at the casino and initially got on Paddock's good side by leading him to a machine where someone had lost tens of thousands of dollars.     

Many gamblers falsely believe such machines are more likely to pay off.     

Weinreich called Danley a "super sweet lady" and said he later learned she had taken off with Paddock.
