    He had more issues than buffets for life being rescinded.

    Sounds like a spoiled brat that wanted attention, and didn't feel the VIP love. I'm just glad he didn't take anyone else out with him.

    I doubt the buffet issue was his only problem; the article notes his mothers death occurred 3 weeks after losing buffet priviledges.
    He also went to great lengths to document his issues with the Casino.
    After all his documents and past issues are fully analyzed, it would be interesting to see what a psychiatrist would say.

    He left 270 pages worth of a suicide note. He needed mental health treatment in the worst way.

    By the time his pass was taken away, he had more or less perved out on every female employee in the buffet over time.

    I'm no psychiatrist, but I'll take a shot at it.

    Casinos try to make us feel special, like we're VIP, a celebrity, etc. We all know we aren't special, we're just buffoons that lose a lot of money in order to be diamond status to skip a few hundred people in the buffet line. To some, that makes them feel important.

    To get free buffets for life, he had to spend considerable time there. Much like the guys that eat every meal at Hooters, and leave a fat tip, hoping the girl takes it as bait that he's money. Sure, the girls will greet him and make him feel like they actually care about his day, but really, they just want your money.

    I'm guessing he went broke trying to preserve his perceived status. The girls at Hooters don't let you hug them incessantly once the big tips stop. Eventually, you're a nobody when you don't have money, and your touching isn't welcomed.

    Like a grown child that can't handle rejection, he threw a fit. Some people can't handle failure because they've been taught to believe that they're special. The reality is, you're not, and I'm not.

    Now replace Hooters with "M Resort."

    Remeber the kid Elliott Rodger out in California? He left pages and pages of grievances, and YouTube videos. Dude actually thought he was a somebody. And look what he did, when he found out he wasn't.

    He didn't earn them via VIP status. Pretty sure it was a promotion/contest.

    wilsllotfrorcash,

    I am not a trained mental health worker either. BUT, I don't walk around with a loaded handgun. Sorry to hear that a life was wasted. At the very minimum, that person took out his own life and did not take any innocent bystanders with him.

    RIP.

    This page has the best information still available that I could find regarding the promo in which John Noble won his free buffets for life. (The original promotion webpage seems to be long gone.) Based on that info it's safe to say that VIP status would have been meaningless, since anyone could have capped their drawing entries each day by just putting $1000 coin-in through the machines and purchasing a buffet the same day.

    Yes, there were obviously other "issues". And you can't totally say bad timing (losing the prize) with his mother's death as it was his behavior that caused him to lose it.

    The problem is he let this fester and grow for TWO years and then acted on it. You don't get over the passing of a parent, but a buffet? A buffet that you indulged in for THREE years. Sorry, I would be tired of eating there all the time pretty quickly.

    Thank goodness he took no one else with him, but that's awfully traumatic for any patrons at the buffet who witnessed that. It just sucks he likely got no help.
