Aces Casino Blog: The "Cheaters" Of The Casino Gaming Industry - Part 2, A.K.A. "The Chip Cappers"
To put it mildly, the crew here at Aces Casino never imagined the favorable response that we received here at our Orange County casino party company when we began taking a look at some of the most interesting, if not slightly devious, people in the casino gaming industry - The people who try their hardest to cheat the very games that they play.
Hey, WE can take a hint. If it's popular, we're there.
So, to appease the masses (all eight of you), here is Part 2 of the now-infamous Aces Casino series on the cheaters of the games - People that we call the "Chip Cappers." We see this all the time with our "play for fun" casino guests -- Players that'll attempt to add chips to their original bet when the situation favors them, as in getting a "21" in their game of Blackjack. Hey, I'll promise you one thing -- The "security" here at our Orange County casino night party company is AWFUL. We DO catch the players, but more often than not, we applaud their effort at trying to rip us off for some valueless chips, and show them some of the tricks that both the casinos AND the cheaters use to battle the Chip Cappers out there.
Now, TV-Radio Talk Show Host Jim Rome has a favorite saying when it comes to competition in the sporting world -- "If you're not cheating, you're not trying." With that in mind, please feel free to check out this short, but very informative video on just how the "Chip-Cappers" try to boost their bottom line at the tables....
You need a good eye to catch players like this.
It's amazing to us just how talented some players are when it comes to what the magicians so reverently call "sleight of hand." It's something that the security staffs in every major casino in the world are constantly watching out for, to make sure that their gaming profits aren't being unfavorably cut into. (Ed. Note: To check out just how the casino security forces battle these casino cheats, check out Part 3 of the Aces Police Blotter on cheating, coming out on Monday, March 19th. We're sure you'll find that part equally interesting, as well.)
Before we leave you on this fine spring day, we thought we'd also answer the Aces Casino e-mail requests as to whether we had any further video footage that was just like we showed in Part One of this series, video that showed one of the best "card mechanics" in our industry. Hey, ask and you shall receive, we always say. Here's another vid shot that shows that superstar dealer in action....
OK, that's all for now. Thanks to all of you that frequent our Aces Casino Blog. We guarantee you that this Orange County casino party company's craziest bloggers will return on Monday, March 12 with another off-beat blog about our industry. Until then, have a good weekend and please feel free to call us or check out our frequently-linked web site on our blog if you're in need of a great entertaining idea -- Casino Night entertainment!
