Ohio is Newest Casino--Cheating Groind in US

Hollywood Casino Toledo
The two new casinos that have recently opened up in Ohio, the Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland and the Hollywood Casino in Hollywood, have been getting hit by both professional casino and poker-cheat teams. This is nothing new for new casino areas, especially in the US where casino and poker personnel are quite weak in rookie casinos.

The reports I have been getting is that the bulk of the cheating is simple past-posting(late bets), bet-capping (adding to winning bets) and bet-pinching, which is swiping losing bets off the layout before the dealer notices them. I have heard some reports of fake chips being put into play, which of course is a more serious offense and could costs these young casinos lots of money.

In the meantime, I expect this rash of casino and poker cheating to continue steadily for at least the next year or two.
