Foxwoods patrons robbed of free slot play, police say


A group of people stole more than $90,000 from Foxwoods Resort Casino by fraudulently gaining access to the accounts of customers who were awarded free slot machine play, Connecticut State Police said. Foxwoods began investigating when a patron complained in September that $150 worth of bonus slot play had already been redeemed from her account, according to an arrest warrant affidavit for Antonio Cifizzari, 39, of New Britain. He was charged Friday with first-degree larceny, The Day of New London reported. Casino officials learned that the account had been used a few days earlier at a slot machine and reviewed surveillance video.
