Roulette Player Jailed in Scotland 23.08.2011

Roulette News

Most people enjoy a game of roulette at a land-based casino while on holiday to a casino resort such as Las Vegas or Monte Carlo. Online players like to play roulette games in their spare time on evenings and weekend in order to unwind from work and the troubles of everyday life.

It is very rare to hear that a roulette player chose to play roulette right after committing a serious crime. However this is exactly what 30 years old Robert Mason from Glasgow, Scotland did after he brutally murdered 56 years old Andrew Alexander at his home in Hillfoot Street, Glasgow.

Mr. Mason started his murderous journey by getting a ride to a nearby shop where he purchased the murder weapon, a lockback knife. He was then driven to the victim’s apartment where he stabbed Mr. Alexander 101 times that included 81 stab wounds and 20 cuts.

Right after the murder Mr. Mason made his way to a local Ladbrokes betting shop where he proceeded to play machine roulette game. He still had his bloodstained clothes. He played for a while and then left to get a change of clothes, throwing away the blood soaked clothes to a nearby waste ground in a regular garbage bag.

After that he again visited the same betting shop and continues playing his favorite roulette machine game. Both his visits to Ladbrokes were caught on CCTV. That footage helped convict him with murder and send him to life in prison.

The reason for the murder appears to be a £30 debt that Mr. Mason owed Mr. Alexander. When the former did not pay up Mr. Alexander placed a reminder note under his door. This triggered Mr. Mason rage that resulted in two lives being ruined.
