Every human activity can be, or most likely should be, characterized, explained, and legitimized. We know what the consequences could be expected in case of violation of certain rules, laws and regulations. In this article, we tried to analyze the most typical types of cheating in casinos and also the consequences that come for cheating not according to the law, but in life.
Casino fraud is divided into three main categories:
1. When the “rogue” player.
2. When the “fraudster” is an employee of a gambling house.
3. When the “fraudster” is a company, then there is a casino.
There is another type of fraud, when the cheater is the state. But this is such a ubiquitous phenomenon that we will limit ourselves to just three gambling – specific situations.
So, when the cheater is a gambler.
In one of his books, the card sharper Alexander Barbacaru wrote that katala actually only helps fortune to make the right decision by her actions. As an example, he put the situation when an ordinary player accidentally recognizes the opponent’s cards. Demand a replay or take advantage of the situation?
Neither the law nor the documentation of gambling houses prescribe cheating techniques and reactions to them. It turns out that, for example, by changing cards at poker, players do not violate either the law or the established rules of the casino game. And among the romantically minded part of society (not the smallest part), the actions of sharpers also cause respect and admiration. Consequently, the ethical and moral laws of society are not violated either.
The consequences of exposure for card sharps are not comforting. Where the law is silent, there is a place for crime. Therefore, there are still cases here and there when players break their fingers, hands or, even worse, necks.
When the fraudster is a casino employee.
Casino employees who want to fill up their pockets at the expense of their employer are in approximately the same position as players. Currently, it is problematic not only to legally prove the fact of fraud, but also in General compliance of a person with his actions in the casino. Job descriptions, no matter how carefully designed, always contain white spots. For example, no one can say exactly how high a casino dealer should carry their cards over the poker table when the hand is being dealt. And what if the players see the cards being dealt?
Here, as in the case of players, when fraud is detected, the old grandfather’s method is used – violence with the involvement of criminal elements. If not detected, but suspected, the casino employee simply loses his job “without explanation”.
When the fraudster is the casino itself.
When a casino cheats its customers, the most difficult question is. In fact, any casino, even in Moscow, even in Las Vegas, is deceiving. With what? The rules of the games have already initially laid down disappointing consequences for the player’s pocket. Despite the seemingly small percentage, the casino does not leave the player with almost no chance of winning. In the end, he will lose – it’s just a matter of time.
But sometimes this is not enough for a casino. And then clearly cheating techniques are used. For example, to reduce the chance of winning in poker, a gambling house may remove one ACE from the deck. Or maybe remove all of them. Who says there should be exactly 52 cards in the deck?
In our country, legal entities have a great advantage over individuals, so it is almost impossible for players to influence the casino to pay for cheating. At best, they will stop just going to it. Although there have been more extreme “exits” in history, such as arson attacks on gambling houses or physical violence against casino representatives.
From all of the above, it is difficult to accurately answer the question of whether there is cheating in the casino. Still, it’s one thing to see how you’re being cheated, but it’s another thing to prove it. And when you once again hear that someone is outraged that they were unfairly beaten, you can only philosophically say that the one who loses is worthy of losing. And the winner is either a master of cheating, or he left the casino on time and did not get into the losing time interval in the casino.
