Russian Casino Cheat Team Collared In New Gorica`s Perla Casino!

Never heard of New Gorica? Well, it´s a quaint and very pretty resort area in the Alps of Slovenia near the Italian border that is home to the Perla Casino, the largest casino in the region which also now hosts major poker tournaments on the European Poker Tour. A cheating Russian roulette crew was apprehended there last week after beating the roulette wheels for more than 100,000 euros. The early reports I'm getting is that they were using laser scanners and cell phones to track the revolutions and speed of the roulette ball and then determine in which sections the ball would land. It seems to be a scam very similar to the London Ritz roulette scam pulled off in 2004 by other Eastern Europeans.

More on this when I get it.
