A man who attempted but failed to rob an off-Strip casino cashier’s cage says he lost $5000 while gambling.

Las Vegas police said Richard D. Watkins, 41, pointed a gun underneath the iron cage bars at Silver Sevens, 4100 Paradise Road, on Aug. 3, demanding money. 

Employees behind the cage ducked and triggered a silent alarm as Watkins, wearing a mask, pointed the gun, the report said.

“Give me all $100 bundles,” an employee recalled Watkins telling them.

One shot was fired during the attempted robbery resulting in an altercation with an armed security guard that ultimately resulted in Watkins being apprehended. 

“Watkins was clearly upset that he lost money and blamed the state of Nevada for allowing casinos to take his money,” the report said.

Watkins faces several charges including attempted murder.  He remains held behind bars without bail.
