Casino snakes rumor slammed

The Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem has denied rumors  that there are snakes in their place.

The casino issued a statement earlier slamming the rumors that went viral on Facebook. "There have been no reported incidents of snakes on our property. We do not allow any animals on property with the exception of service animals," it said.

The state police operating inside the Sands Casino Station also denied the rumors.

Trooper William Ortiz told The Express Times that there are zero snakes in the place. "You always hear all kinds of little stuff. It is strange but there is none," he added.

The rumor reportedly started when someone went to a doctor to have a snake bit checked. The doctor allegedly asked the patient if he or she visited the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem lately.

Julia Corwin, a representative of the casino, said that the story must have been modified and passed along. "It seems like there was one post that was going around and then it's been kind of modified in a bunch of different directions," she said.

True or not, a snake in a casino is pretty scary.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
