The most famous casino cheaters

casino cheats

Ever since there have been casinos, there have been casino cheats. These are people who want to win so badly that they are prepared to do anything – including breaking the law – to make it happen. Some people have even become so notorious for what they have done that they are famous (or rather, infamous) for their cheating. We look at some of the most high profile now – play here.

Tommy Glenn Carmichael

Tommy Glenn Carmichael added his name to the roll call of cheaters due to slot machines. He has even been imprisoned for what he did. It all began in 1980 – Carmichael used a metal device that he would put into the slot machine, making it think that a coin had been inserted. It would trigger the game without Carmichael having to pay anything at all. 

Eventually, as slots became more updated, the device no longer worked. So Carmichael started to use smaller casinos in Las Vegas; they still had the older machines as it cost a lot to update them. However, it was at this time he was caught, and sent to prison for five years. When he was released in 1987, Carmichael clearly had not learnt his lesson, and he started cheating again. To do so, he had to buy a slot machine and really learn how it all worked. Knowing this, he created a ‘slider’ which worked in a similar way to his previous device. He even sold it to other cheaters! However, he was caught again in 1996, 1998, and 1999 and was jailed. He is now banned from any casino, although he does make a living working with casinos to prevent other cheats! 

Richard Marcus

Richard Marcus is often called one of the greatest cheaters of all time when it comes to casinos. He made a huge amount of money and was never caught, so his title may well be deserved. So how do we know what he did if he was never caught? He wrote a book about it! He waited until he had made as much money as he would ever want through cheating, and then stopped, so he decided to write a book about his exploits. 

Marcus has a name for his cheating method; he called it the ‘Savannah’. It was a simple method, but it took plenty of guts and not a small amount of skill. 

Marcus would, quite simply, use sleight of hand to remove chips from a losing bet. This was much less obvious than the method of adding chips to a winning bet. 

Ron Harris & Reid McNeal

In 1995, the jackpot of $100,000 was won by Reid McNeal. He was playing keno at Bally’s Park Place Casino Resort in Atlantic City. This might not be anything to be suspicious about, except for the fact that McNeal didn’t show any emotion when he won. All he did was ask to be pain in cash. 

All jackpot wins need to be verified by state gaming officials in New Jersey, so an investigation was set up. The investigation led to a man named Ron Harris who was a computer programmer. It turned out that Harris was modifying software to pay out huge wins if a certain sequence of coins was used to play.

Revolutionary Blockchain-Powered Social Media Platform Hyprr Set To Launch In August

Published

Hyprr

This could be a game-changer as Hyprr (formerly Howdoo) incorporates most of the benefits of other social media platforms and combines them into one. Oh…and it’s also on the blockchain, so censorship-resistant you could say. 

HowDoo officially changes its name to Hyprr. The team is pleased to finally announce the launch of their new blockchain-powered social media platform Hyprr going public in August.

Why Hyprr? You may ask.

The answer is simple and straightforward.

The current social media landscape is no longer sustainable. There have been several cases of data breach and unauthorized mining of users’ data. The owners of the popular social media platforms wield too much power and take arbitrary decisions. It is really all about them and what they want, when in fact, it should be about the users.

Now is the time for a change. This is why the idea of a social media platform truly powered by blockchain technology is an exciting one. A platform that gives full control and ownership to users, a safe and secure space where users can decide what happens to their information. A social media platform where content creators are duly paid and rewarded for their content. The good news is, a social platform like this already here, it is called Hyprr. Let’s say you’re a content creator with a few thousand followers, well under youtube’s…

But what are some slot themes that players love? Read ahead to find out! 

Classic style themed slots 

The funny thing about classic style themed slots is that in the very early days of the online slots industry these games were by far the most common, however this was more because of technological constraints rather than anything else. As soon as developers had the know-how to create more colourful and vibrant themes for their online slots classic style games slowly fell into obscurity. 

But here’s the thing: after almost two decades of colourful and themed slots there are a growing number of slot gamblers who just…
