You may have heard that casinos don’t like cheaters, and are more than willing to rough up any rule breakers who are defying the odds and taking home money illegally.
When it comes to fraud or felony charges, you will only get into real trouble if you use and electronic aid or a similar device to try and cheat and steal money from casinos.
Counting Cards is not actually considered a criminal offense however it is left up to the casino to decide whether to ban you, and they often will, they will also make it seem a much greater offense than it is to scare potential card counters away.
Because casinos security guards are so vengeful, cheating is not recommended. However, you did ask so here are four tips on casino cheating.
1.Counting Cards in Blackjack The classic Hi-Lo method involves a player starting with 0 at the shuffle. Then for every 10, face card or ace that is dealt, take away one point. For every card 2-6, add one point. Then make 7, 8 and 9 as zero points. (You can also let cards cancel each other out) Before each hand, divide your count by the estimated number of decks left. When you hit +2 you know it’s time to bet. Try not to move your lips as you do the math or most casinos will kick you out.
2.Marking in Poker poker is an easier game to “rig” since you will often play against human opponents. Marking cards involves marking the back-end of cards through a variety of methods including blocking out parts of the card, shading parts of the card or scratching it. Then the player will either use special contact lenses or sunglasses to see the alteration, or may be able to read the marks with his own eye.
3.Dicing Dice in Craps Cheating in craps involves either a player slipping in altered dice (which may be weighted down rounded out on one side to increase the odds of a high number) or manipulating legitimate dice. You can improve your odds at rolling your desired number by placing the wanted number face up in your hand and then moving your hand so that it remains in the position, whether rolling or landing flat. If you master this technique, be subtle about it as casinos do look for this and will not hesitate to send you on your way.
4. Confusing the slots Slots are improving in technological terms all the time, however some are still susceptible to a trick known as the ‘fake quarter’. The fake quarter needs to be the same size, density and weight as the real thing. In the past cheaters have found that a quarter attached to a piece of string and then inserting it into the machine and then pulling it out will fool the machine into thinking you have made a bet. Casinos are very wise to this method of cheating and the chances of finding a machine that will fall for this trick are somewhat limited.
