Default 2011 Casino Cheating...year in review

If there’s a way to cheat, it will be discovered
For casino cheats, 2011 has been a banner year.

Criminals have pulled off more successful scams this year than in the past, said Darrin Hoke, director of surveillance for the L’Auberge du Lac casino in Lake Charles, La.

Hoke doesn’t attribute the boom to the sour economy. Rather, he said, “I think it’s the timeless cat-and-mouse game between casinos and the people who want to steal from them.”

During a presentation on opening day of the Global Gaming Expo, the world’s largest gambling industry event, Hoke outlined some of the year’s biggest table and slot scams. Here are the top six:

After further reflection, I should have posted this in "Gambling Law"? or in "News"?

Electronic roulette

Cheaters also have found ways to compromise electronic roulette slots. In one case involving a machine with a real ball and wheel, a supervisor colluded with gamblers and hit a button when the ball dropped to change the outcome of the game and help the accomplice win. In another, scammers figured out they could convert comp money into real cash without actually betting by covering all the spaces in the game. Other observant cheaters discovered that the ball and wheel on certain machines never changed speed, so they could track spins to uncover patterns.
Cheaters? Really? Seems like a standard advantage play to me.

I found that one funny too. Casino propaganda to paint any Advantage Play as "cheating".

Default Advantage play at keno

Read chapter 24 about the big keno hit of the guy that won 19 out of 20 three times in a row.

I was thinking the same thing.

Default Not the thread I was hoping for when I saw the "Casino Cheating" title

I wish some newspaper or trade magazine would publish an article recapping all the instances of casinos cheating patrons in the past year.
