Las Vegas police say the man armed with a large revolver demanded cash from an employee at the casino near Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana at about 6 p.m. Monday. They say he made off with an undetermined amount of cash.

Photos from the surveillance tape indicate he is black man, about 6-foot-1, possibly in his mid-thirties. He was wearing a black baseball cap, pink shirt, and blue jeans.
