Article mentioning Otto Hinsche (July 22, 2007):
Otto Hinsche learned the ropes of the early casino business in Las Vegas at the Last Frontier, then applied that knowledge to running a casino in the Philippines, where Billy was born. Otto became a prisoner of war during World War II, and when the Korean War flared up just five years later, "decided he wasn't going to end up in a POW camp again." He moved the family to Beverly Hills.
