Big-time Italian cheats Baioni and Camilleri
As I had expected, 61 year-old Frank Camilleri and 64 year-old Francesco Baioni, the two longtime professional roulette pastposting cheats from Italy, have received no jail time after pleading guilty in court to various casino cheating offenses on roulette tables throughout the UK. What I failed to mention in my previous article about the Italian casino-cheat pair is that they have already done prison time in the US for cheating at roulette in American casinos, though I don't have details on these events.
This light jail sentence goes to show the UK's continued leniency in dealing with convicted casino cheats. Obviously British courts hold casino gambling with disdain and are unwilling to severely punish casino cheats caught at the tables. So I guess if you're a casino cheat, the UK is a great place to work if you can get your moves down. Had this Italian cheating pair been found guilty in the US, they might have been sentenced to as much as ten years in prison, where they might have had to resort to cheating in one of Nevada's prison casinos. See post about prison casinos below.
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.
