Genting Casino Scotland investigating $250,000 Baccarat Cheat Scam

Another Genting Baccarat Cheat Scam
Funny thing, Genting Group which operates several casinos in the UK and Asia, has again been victimized by what its senior executives say is another baccarat cheat scam. The funny thing is that Genting Group is the owner of Crockford's casino in London, the gaming establishment that brought the whole Phil Ivey baccarat edge-sorting cheat scam to light back in 2012. Ivey was accused of cheating Crockfords out of $12 million.

In this latest case, Genting Group says that a cheating gang hit its Glasgow casino's baccarat tables several times over a four month period and beat them for a cool quarter million. Now details of how the alleged scam was carried out, but it appears to involve distracting tactics and maybe even inside dealer-collusion enabling the cheats to identify the value of the cards before they were dealt.

No mention of edge-sorting has been made. When I get more info on this I will pass it along.

Does demanding to see called poker hands at showdown give unfair advantage to some poker players?

Secrets in the muck?
All poker players have been annoyed at one time or another when other players demand to see their hands after a call when they are thrown into the muck. The accepted explanation for this is that it helps to identify collusion at the table.

But does it? And does it somehow favor certain players over others?

Here's a pretty good article on the subject.

My North Korean Poker-Hacking Claims Backed up by other News Articles

Online Poker Hacking for Nukes?
Back in mid-May I wrote an article about my suspicions that Kim Jong Un, the nuclear-bluffing North Korean dictator, may not at all be a bluffer when it comes to hacking online poker sites. My reasoning, of course, was that hacking online poker games was another profitable source of income to finance the North Korean nuclear weapons program.

Now serveral other news articles about Kim's poker-hacking program, as I shall call it, are surfacing online. And I highly doubt that any of these articles contain fake news. They're coming from official South Korean security agencies.

Here's one article about Kim Jong Un hacking online poker. Have a read and let me know what you think.

Guy REALLY gets cheated out of $100,000 casino slot machine jackpot!

Sugar Daddy got screwed...
Imagine this situation: You're with your girlfriend/boyfriend having a great time at a casino playing a slot machine with a progressive jackpot. You're the one gambling because the money being pumped into the machine at fifty bucks a pop is coming off your casino slot player's card. So while the machine is registering the monies off your card, you're smooching with your companion and you say to him/her, "You go ahead and press the button to bring me good luck." He/she presses the button and...WHAM! Bells start ringing and the slot machine screen goes berserk!

You got back all the money you lost at slot machines your entire life and then some!

Then suddenly your companion goes running off to alert casino personnel to the your win, crying hysterically out loud,"I won! I won!"

At first you don't think much of the fact that he/she said "I won!" and not "We won!" You think that he/she was simply overwhelmed by the moment, and of course you, not he/she/, would be receiving the big hundred-grand check from the casino.


He/she gets the check because he/she is the person who actually pressed the button on the machine. Casino law states that the person who presses the button or pulls the arm of a slot machine is the rightful winner of the jackpot, regardless of who puts the money in the machine before the button is pressed or the arm is pulled.

So if you have a bitch/asshole companion who is a greedy son of a bitch/asshole who doesn't want to give you the jackpot or at least split it with you, you're shit out of luck.

Imagine that!

Well, you might have guessed that since I'm writing this, the event depicted here actually did happen.

Yes, it did.

In April of this year at the Seminole Hard Rock casino in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 66-year-old Jan Flato was sitting at the slot machine with his hot young Russian girlfriend, Marina Medvedeva (who is married to a guy whose last name is Navarro), when he inserted his player's card into the machine and told her to press the button for good luck.

She did, and the reels came up $100,000!

She claimed the jackpot, gave him jack shit, after which he appeared to threaten her in text messages and she played the nice innocent little girl, as if she wasn't out hustling the guy in the first place.

Well, what would you do if this happened to you?

I know what I would do!
