The Paddock Story Doesn't Add Up

Apparently Paddock slipped and fell in a casino a few years ago and sued the casino.  CNN (yes, I know) got their hands on the case transcripts and tells us this:

...He was a nocturnal creature who gambled all night and slept all day. He took Valium at times for anxiousness, and had the doctor who prescribed it to him on retainer. He wagered up to a million dollars a night, but wandered around glitzy Las Vegas casinos in sweatpants and flip-flops, and carried his own drink into the high rollers’ area because he didn’t want to tip the waitresses too much....

So this ex-postal worker, ex-IRS agent, ex-manufacturing firm employee and current "landlord" was pushing $1 million chips around? 

I know Ann Coulter has trouble believing that this guy could 1)  HAVE that sort of disposable cash; and 2) LOSE as much as he had to lose (about $25 on every $10K he bet.)

AND he had a couple of small airplanes and at least 2 houses?
