The Ol' Sticky Palms Roulette Cheat Move

Remember Fred Biletnikoff?
It's a humdinger! It takes balls! And it gets the money--every time!

And here's how it works...or I should say worked because according to reports I'm getting out of France, one very sly gentleman (not sure if he's French) has been casino-hopping up and down the casino-happy French Riviera with some very sticky palms below his wrists.

Using his hands to spread his own roulette chips over the layout, those sticky palms lifted up other players' cash chips the way the soles of your shoes lift gum off the street. He started by sucking up $5 chips, then graduated to $25 chips, and really had a heck of a roulette scam going, one that only victimized other players at the table and not the casinos.

His hand movements were all completely natural as he did not have to bend his hands to get the chips.

But then, like almost all greedy casino cheats, he got greedy. He decided to apply the stick'em to black $100 cash chips being bet by a high roller who was keenly following his bets. When number 13 came in, as bad luck would have it for the stick´em cheat, the high roller was waiting for the $3,500 payout his winning $100 chip straight-up on the number would bring.

But the high roller got a rude surprise when he looked and there was no black chip on number 13.

He was sure he'd bet one there, and when he complained to the pit inspector, who called surveillance, the sticky-palm cheat was caught red-handed...or should I say sticky-handed?

My take: Another great casino cheat scam done in by greed. The guy should've stuck (pardon the pun) to $5 chips. People playing those are much looser and don't generally hawk their bets as much as high rollers do.

Even with $5 chips, I'd think the guy could've easily made a few hundred bucks a day if he moved around  a bit.

Latest Dealer-Cheat Casino Scam nets seven-felony convictions at MotorCity Casino in Detroit

Bust Out Casino-Cheat Team
In another cheating-dealer/cohorts casino scam, seven people were convicted for a relatively small casino scam on an ultimate Texas hold’em table at the MotorCity casino in Detroit, Michigan. In a casino that sees tons of low-level amateurish casino-cheat scams, this one was no different.

Cheating dealer Darryl Green simply, and systematically, overpaid his six cheating accomplices’ winning bets and refrained from taking their losing bets. It´s not clear exactly how long the scam went on, but apparently in only netted a few thousand dollars, not a helluva lot for staining your record with a felony.

The scenario of cheating dealers working in collusion with their cohorts is becoming more and more prevalent as new casinos keep cropping up all over both in urban and rural parts of the United States.

It is my opinion that casinos need to educate their dealers and floor staffs via game protection training that this type of behavior is both wrong and extremely injurious to both people’s professional and personal lives.

Another Double Whammy Casino Cheat Bust in Singapore!

Singapore Casino-Cheat Candy Store
It never ceases to amaze me how much cheatng is going on in Singapore's two big casinos. They've been at it six years now, but it seems that Singapore is still the haven of the world for poker cheats and casino cheats, both pros and amateurs alike.

Last week there were two major casino cheating busts, but don't forget that for each bust you hear about, there are several successful casino scams that have been paid and forgotten about.

The first casino-cheating bust occured at the Marina Bay Sands casino, where another cheating dealer was overpaying his four cohorts on several different table games over a long period of time--to the tune of $118,000. These simple and amateurish overpaying-winning-bets scams are getting more and more popular, not only in Singapore but worldwide, including Las Vegas.

It blows my mind that these types of scams can go on for so long. Several times over the past year the total take from this scam has exceeded a million dollars. This shows how weak in general casinos across the world are in the area of table game protection.

When I conduct undercover surveillance for casinos, I always find evidence of the same things--lack of proper dealing procedure and basic ignorance of casino game protection.

The second Singapore bust also occured at the Marina Bay Sands. This one appeared a bit more professional but also probably involved corrupt casino employees (it seems Singapore's casinos have hordes of 'em).

This time it was three men and three females, otherwise four Russians, a Filipino and a czech (quite a strange mix of a casino-cheat team), who used electronic devices to beat the casino's slot machines. I don't have details as to exactly what devices they used or how they beat the slot machines, but all six were arrested while a laptop, sixteen cell phones and $125,000 cash were seized.

So it must have been a pretty big and maybe even professional operation.

In any case, I think it's fair to say that Singapore has become the number-one candy store for worldwide casino cheats, surpassing even Foxwoods casino in Connecticut.

I spoke at the Aces Casino Summit in Singapore just two years before the country's two casinos opened in 2009.

I urged them to get proper game protection training for their employees--obviously they still haven't listened.

I have never been contacted by either Singapore casiono to help them out.
