Casino scammed by player using hijacked security cameras

Player scams casino out of $32 million by using hijacked security cameras

This is one of those "happy Friday stories" that you always see. For once, the House didn't win. A foreign high roller managed to scam $32 million from Crown casino by using hijacked cameras to gain an advantage over the house. Full details of the scam are not yet known, but we do know the player has been banned from the casino. I wonder why...

The person in question was occupying one of the expensive villas with his family. He managed to gain remote access to the casino's security cameras, which he then used to spy on the dealer's hand. He had someone watch the cameras and somehow relay the information to him so that he could make intelligent bets.

 

His scam was uncovered over the course of eight hands. He and his family were then kicked out of the villa in the middle of the night and instructed never to return. While the casino believes it is likely they will be able to recover most of the $32 million lost, in all likelihood, the player has already returned to his country of origin.

 

This just goes to show that the House doesn't always win.
