High Tech Gamblers and Cheating in Casinos, Casinos are Fighting Back


In Las Vegas many techie types are winning big, too big for the Corporate Casinos who expect to win. The house has to win and the margins are set in advance. High Tech Gamblers and Cheating in Casinos and of course the Casinos are fighting back. Of course you knew they would

Why well because people are cheating: MIT and micro-sensors making progress, Virtual Keyboards, smart dust:

http://robotics.eecs.berkeley.edu/~pister/SmartDust/

Student have been using them under their finger nails to count cards in the CT Indian casinos and the sensors are wired to their watches, displaying the results, pretend I did not tell you that. I refuse to reveal sources. Each time certain cards are played they tap out with their fingers on the table, using certain fingers for certain numbers such as 1's, 3's, 5's and 10. A combination allows the addition to the nearest number. The other hand is used for Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces. Very clever, just imagine how rich Gates would be if he had that system to augment his card counting abilities in his room at Harvard?

Moral of the Story? Never play cards with a Micro-Sensor Research Student at MIT and as per this article Berkeley either. Gray Davis signed into legislation a bill, which allows Indian Casinos in CA to grow and have more slots. So Berkeley students will not have to go up to Reno to score on the casinos there. Meanwhile as the card counting games continue, Pit Bosses are hiring similar students to put sensors on the table to catch people tapping and more remote hidden video cameras to catch cheaters. You cannot regulate morality can you. Not with the casinos, with the public out to make fast buck, not with the politicians, not with judges or lawyers.

So why are we trying to do this with our businessmen who provide jobs? Seems as if the problem starts in the first grade when Junior tries to steal a candy bar, better watch moms and catch them when they are young and explain integrity.

Old games new rules.
