    Exactly how this would go down... just replace the words with "...were you aware of the cheating capacity of these machines if tampered with?" ... "no Mr. Chairman I wasn't" "yet you admit this it's possible right?" "... well anything is possible Mr. Chairman, but no we would never ever cheat...

    Like I mentioned before, Harrah's in Rincon is still using Mindplay... although in a covert manner. You don't know they're using it unless you ask, and if you don't know what it is nor suspect it, you'll never ask =) Shift Boss told me exactly how it's all setup. The betting squares have sensors...

    It's all very simple when it comes down to the bottom line... The casinos make money... and they make money for more than just themselves. All these 'control measures' in which the sole duty is to keep the games inline, sometimes look the other way based on an offer that couldn't be refused;)...

    Losing 14.5% of my bankroll in 6 hours.

    Anyway, I know most people don't agree with my findings, so I don't want to argue about it. Instead, I just want to say, experienced players should rely on their experience and gut feelings. If something feels wrong to you, don't play that game / casino until you figure out what is wrong, if...

    An Episode at Harrahs

    Well low clumps of cards... not only would you place a min bet (if this was the flavor of the cards for a while... not just occurring randomly which would be natural) but you would hit all your stiffs vs. dealer 2 - 6 and maybe even 17's here & there if it was really bad! The high clumps would...

    2 Deck Pitch Game vs. 6 Deck Shoe- question

    Not usually... but if the ASM is like uhhh 'custom chipped' then yes it would. Although no matter what you either get drowned with 10's or a plethora of low cards when the +TC is going way up and they just never appear... not saying that no 10's appear... they do but usually with a lot of low...

    2 Deck Pitch Game vs. 6 Deck Shoe- question

    Just be aware of games in which the high valued cards never show more often than not ;) But even if you cut in a different area... and that group of high valued cards comes out... it usually results in a push with the house (all 20's)... just saying be aware of this. There's a difference in...

    Losing 14.5% of my bankroll in 6 hours.

    Well... it can't hurt you to move on (unless you want to argue leaving a high +TC...)... but then again if a row of 10-valued cards are coming, most likely it'll be an 'all twenties push' with the house and that's the same as just taking them out of the deck... but legally ;) Yes... the cards...

    2 Deck Pitch Game vs. 6 Deck Shoe- question

    Yeah... but watch out for dealers who shuffle the deck with uneven picks. It perpetuates card clumping... and I"m not talking about naturally occurring card clumping. I know... I used to do this myself ;) Usually 1/4 to 1/3rd of the bottom isn't included in the shuffle... which keeps any like...

    Ruffled by The Shuffle and Card Clumping

    Well yeah Leisure Suit Larry ;) ! But like a few other respected players had mentioned several times... what if the ASM's are chipped to do otherwise. We all know that the ASM's can read the cards... that's a fact! Every AP knows the math works, but it won't work when the game is subverted some...

    Ruffled by The Shuffle and Card Clumping

    Exactly... I frown when someone says that over billions of hands the TC blah blah blah blah... Well what if the machine is purposely manipulating the cards at the right moments... not all the time mind you but just enough to give them an extra percentage yearly without it being blatantly...

    Organized Crime in Vegas still...?

    We had some board members arrested at our Condo in Lauderdale ... crooked contractors jacking up the prices... then giving kickbacks to the board members for giving them the job... they were eventually busted... we then elected a whole new board and the manager was almost fired. So this kinda...

    What happens if you write down incorrect information on a casino CTR?

    gambling industry (drugs, trafficking... whatever) and government are but two sides of the same coin ;)
