Most of gamblers go to a casino to play and enjoy themselves. However, many people have an entirely different aim while visiting a casino: they go there particularly to cheat with the intention of stealing from it. In this case, it is important for the casino staff and possibly other players as well, to be able to recognize and spot them. Here are some ways to do this.
Can They Be High Rollers?
Unless a casino already knows a particular player, perhaps because they have been playing at the casino for a while now or because they are rich and famous, casino security are always especially interested in anyone who claims to be a high roller. Many of these people really have a lot of cash to play games, but there are others who pretend to be extremely rich to be given all the fabulous perks that a high roller can get, including access to the VIP gambling areas, free rooms, and food.
It is necessary for casino security and dealers to watch these people carefully, for example, by seeing what happens when they lose. The best cheats usually lose at some point so that their playing will look more genuine. However, they don’t want to lose much money in the process. So if there is any player who only ever loses after he has made a small bet, and the amount he loses won’t be very large, and he wins on this big bets, and this pattern keeps happening, it is likely that he is up to something. It seems to be a clever ruse, but a seasoned security officer will see right through.
Distracting The Dealer
No casino dealer should ever be touched, and they should not touch the players, either. This is a hard rule, but a casino cheat usually bypasses to distract the dealer enough to do whatever they have to do, for example, swap cards. So, if the dealers feel they are being distracted, they must watch out very carefully.
