Despite the utmost care of the casino staff, original cases of fraud have repeatedly occurred in the world. Famous scammers in casinos often took hundreds of thousands of dollars, or even several million, from establishments. The inattention of the croupier and the administration of gambling establishments glorified the scammers far beyond the countries where the events took place, and inscribed their names in the history of gambling scams.
The stories of the most famous scammers
The casino is the most popular place for fraudulent schemes, as in the gambling business there are always large sums of money available, and even the richest and most attentive gamblers lose their vigilance in a fit of excitement. If small scammers carry out small scams, then the most famous scammers in the casino carefully think over serious schemes in advance that enrich them by more than one hundred dollars. Some well-known scammers not only managed to get away with it, but also became experts in preventing scams in the gaming business.
One of the famous computer geniuses who exploited the vulnerability of the slot system is Denis Nikrash. In the seventies of the last century, Denis was able to hack the machine using a special chip and keys for breaking. The simple scheme allowed him to win at any time, but at the same time it was necessary to involve several people to provide security and cover. The system was completely thought out, but the human factor played in his fate – one of the people who obscured the machine while withdrawing the win, handed Denis and became the reason for the arrest of the fraudster. It is believed that for all the time Denis was able to steal more than $ 6 million.
The unique technique that Bill Zender chose consisted of smearing one side of the dice with special materials. Due to the increased sliding of the dice, the number of combinations that could fall out was reduced from 36 to 6. Players who knew about this technique placed their bets on exactly 6 necessary combinations. By attracting several players, the likelihood of winning increased significantly. Bill is believed to have won about $ 700,000. Bill is now a gaming consultant and prevents such scams.
One of the most famous scammers in casino history is Richard Martin. His method is simple enough, so he managed to always remain innocent. Richard used only sleight of hand and a little natural charm, which allowed him to win 10 thousand dollars at a time. His method consists of placing two $ 5 and $ 5K chips with the lowest value on top. If Richard lost, then with one dexterous movement he exchanged a couple of chips for 2 others with a face value of $ 5 each. If his trick worked and he won, Martin would solemnly take out the bottom $ 5,000 chip. It is impossible to estimate the amount that Richard won, but it is believed that he fraudulently obtained one million dollars.
