MAYS LANDING, N.J. (CBS/AP) An Atlantic City gambler convinced he'd been cheated by the casinos for years admits he took revenge by killing a worker at the Taj Mahal Resort.

Mark Magee, of Norristown, Pa., pleaded guilty to murder Monday and faces at least 30 years in prison before a chance at parole.

Magee admitted he walked into a card and dice room, pulled out a pistol, and opened fire on 57-year-old Ray Kot in May 2009.

Magee says he stalked and killed Kot because he believed the casinos had electronically manipulated table games.
