Snakes on the roulette table? The odds are zero

BETHLEHEM, Pa. – An eastern Pennsylvania casino is trying to dispel a bizarre online rumor: The Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem says patrons are not being bitten by snakes.

Casino spokeswoman Julia Corwin told The Express-Times (http://bit.ly/1hJVmh5) that there have been no reported snake encounters at the Sands. She said that if there were any snakes at all, the critters would have been captured by the casino’s sophisticated surveillance cameras.

The rumor circulating on Facebook claims someone went to a doctor with some kind of bite, the doctor diagnosed a snake bite and asked immediately whether the patient had recently visited the Bethlehem casino.

State police operate a station at the casino. Trooper William Ortiz reports “absolutely zero snakes” inside.
