Two more Blackjack Cheats come clean in New Year's Eve $10,000 Casino Scam at Dakota Sioux Casino in south Dakota

Dakota Sioux Casino
It was New Year's Eve 2015, a prime night of activity for casino cheats, but this time the cheats hooked up with dealers and floorpeople and scammed this tribal casino out of ten grand. The latest pair to fall in the casino caper were a pit boss and a dealer.

Lito Banbilla Bolocon, the pit boss, has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit theft in a gaming establishment on tribal lands. Now he faces five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Although he probably will receive lots less prison time and a much smaller fine, he has blown his entire career for what was probably a few thousand bucks.

Same for blackjack dealer Fern Fraya Gill, who helped Bolocon devise a plan to bring in three player/agents to whom they could dump off the money at the blackjack table. She pleaded guilty to the same charge and faces the same punishment and the same ending to her casino career.

Jeremy Kris Brown, another blackjack dealer in on the scam, pleaded guilty last May, and Jordon Anthony Rondell, the "big player," guessed it....also pleaded guilty to the same charge.

I don't have the details of exactly how the dealers passed the money off to their cohort players, but I imagine it was something simple such as not taking losers, paying pushes and overpaying winners.

Bolocon's job was surely to try to protect the scam, making sure no other casino employees caught on to it.

Well, somebody did, and the bottom line is a lot of people went down big-time for such a little amount of money.
