Everyone wants to win a lot of money when playing their favourite casino games, but sometimes, people go a little too far and take some bad paths. Cheating at a casino is never acceptable and there can be some serious consequences for those who get caught.
Here, we’re going to look at some of the ways casinos deal with people who cheat…Although we’re not going to tell stories of the guilty getting their hands chopped off or fingers broken like in certain movies, the consequences can be pretty dire.
First off, when you cheat at a casino, you risk forfeiting all of your winnings thanks to the casinos powers of seizure. Even if you only cheat on one game, the casino cannot be sure that the rest of your winnings aren’t also the proceeds of cheating and they may go ahead and seize the whole lot.
If you’re caught cheating at a casino, don’t be surprised if you’re detained. They will question you about your cheating and try to figure out how you did it and whether you have any kind of accomplishes. During the questioning, you might find that they let you go when they realise that they don’t have any proof of your guilt, or if they decide their accusation was false in the first place.
If you’re a keen casino player, then you could be very disappointed if you do end up getting caught cheating. This is because casinos can blacklist you and ban you from entering their premises. On top of this, they might let other local casinos know that you’re a cheater, especially if they are owned by the same group.
Did you know that card counting is actually legal? While this might seem like a form of cheating it just isn’t, and many people win big by using this method -although we don’t suggest you try it – it’s extremely difficult and if you get it wrong you’ll potentially lose a lot of money. Of course, some casinos do still ban those who count cards if they are winning too much money consistently.
When it comes to cheating at an online casino, it’s actually a lot more difficult. When everything is done online, there is less room for error and this works in a casinos favour. Of course, if you did manage to hack the system and cheat online, you would likely be banned from the site and others affiliated with it, plus you would likely have committed a criminal offence too – something that may be dealt with very robustly by the authorities.
As you can see, cheating at a casino is never worth it and is best avoided altogether. It’s entirely possible to win a lot of money without cheating as these games are all down to luck, although everybody knows the house has the edge!
