Macau Business Magazine Article on Richard Marcus' Cheating Career!
I was recently interviewed by Macau Business Magazine, one of the most important financial and casino industry magazines in Asia. The topic of the feature article is the widespread cheating that is going on in Macau, which you might know has become the biggest legalized casino-gambling area in the world, surpassing even Las Vegas. A large part of the article covers my cheating career. In all, it is a very well-written and informative piece. Read it here.
My book, AMERICAN ROULETTE (St. Martin's Press), tells the true story of my twenty-five years as a professional casino cheater. Upon arriving in Las Vegas, in my early twenties, I supported myself solely through legitimate gambling. However, I soon found myself broke and homeless, living under a highway overpass. I eventually sought gainful employment in the only industry I had knowledge of, becoming a Blackjack and Baccarat dealer. Armed with experience on both sides of the tables, my mentor to be, Joe Classon taught the ways of a professional casino cheater.
Although retired, I keep up on the various cons and scams that law enforcement is largely unable to adequately police.
