Ex-casino employees steal player list worth $108m

Three former employees of the Tropicana Casino have been accused of stealing a player list containing over 20,000 valuable casino players thought to be worth $108 million.

John Conklin, 47, now the vice-president of relationship marketing at Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, worked for Tropicana as a marketing executive and is thought to be the instigator. He allegedly told Justin Literelle, 26, who worked under Conklin, to download the list so it could provide "future leverage" to aid them with any future jobs. James DiMarco, 59, is also alleged to have been party to stealing of the list.

If found guilty, they each face 10 years in jail and fines coming in as large as $150,000.

The list contains personal details such as names, addresses, telephone numbers and a unique “casino rating” for every player.
