Prestigious gambling-houses it is not advantageous to fraud their clients as they make money on a fair game and they have no reason to risk their license or worst of all freedom. As casinos can count money fraud from the side of gamblers is cut short completely with efficient work of security service.But where a casino does not keep an eye on security in full measure and those want to make a profit out of its carelessness leave themselves a loophole. And “one-day-casinos” themselves would not mind kicking out of the clients maximally possible amount of money for a short term of their existence.And the game does not matter there – let it be poker, roulette wheel, blackjack or any other game. The ways of fraud differ, the objective to be achieved is one – to get money of “a fish” in a fraudulent way.Blackjack is a rather popular game all over the world. And accordingly there are many ways of fraud for that. It is easier for a gambling-house to technically fraud a gambler. Let’s analyze some methods of clients’ fraud in blackjack by unfair operators of casinos:Incomplete set. The easiest way to worsen chances of a gambler to win is to take away some cards from the set probably aces. That will reduce a number of “blackjack” combinations at the gamblers and as a result their chances to win.Marked cards. Casinos can use this way of fraud when a false gambler plays at the table. Sitting, as a rule, on the last box, he takes a decision on the cards so that croupier could pick the strongest combination than the other gamblers.Crooked shoe. The game begins with already shuffled set in the shoes. Before that, the cards should be distributed so that it would bee enough to have a shuffle to become bankrupt.False Shuffles. Before start the game, making false shuffle, with a rather easy technique a croupier can divide the set into two parts – one with bowers and the other one with minor cards. And knowing how a client cuts the cards or making a false cut of the cards, a croupier will give for the game only minor cards that worsens the situation of a gambler.Special shoe. The only wish can make invent a device for a croupier to take out of the set a card he needs. A special system of mirrors and prisms in such shoes does not let the gamblers win.“A mistake” of a croupier. Sometimes the croupiers make mistakes and a winner combination becomes losing. But sometimes it is not a case of inattentiveness of a croupier but a wish to play up a client. Mostly it occurs to the gamblers inebriated with alcohol who do not follow the game.The gamblers who increase their chances in fraudulent way playing blackjack use different methods beginning from a primitive pinching of dibs up to command games applying technical means. The following are some well-known ways of card-shaping:Late stake. It is a common way of card-shaping – increase of the stake with a winner combination available and decrease with a losing combination available. So when a gambler has a blackjack, he or his accomplices draw away a croupier and put on the box a greater amount of money.Replacement of the cards. There is a game blackjack switch. There a gambler can change his cards on two boxes. For example, if on the one there are an ace and a sice and other a dick and a cinque, he shall have right to replace the cards to obtain an ace and a dick (blackjack) on one box and 11 points on the other one. But using some manipulations the gamblers can change the cards on different boxes also in ordinary blackjack.Browsing. When a croupier offers to cut the cards one of plotters takes a cut card and passes it over the surface of the cards as he browses. At that a correct browsing should be made on the underside of the set so that a croupier could not notice a trick. It should be made so that the accomplice could see 3-4 last cards in the set. Then they make a cut and the game will continue with the minimum. When the seen cards should appear the gambler increases the stakes up to maximum and puts the stakes over all the boxes. Knowing which cards would come out, he makes a croupier pip out. Such distribution for a shuffle is enough to clear out the casino.Marked cards. This card-shaping requires complicity of a casino’s employee. It is very efficient as a gambler always knows which card comes next.Crooked shuffle. As in the case of card-shaping with a gambler, being in conspiracy with a croupier the gamblers can hope for increase of their chances at special distribution of the cards after the crooked shuffle.Replacement of the cards. It is a very sophisticated way of card-shaping. Especially in the casinos where shoes with the cards carelessly lays on an empty table. A gambler comes up to the table and while a pit boss calls a croupier he changes the set of the cards in the shoes or the shoes itself (!) with the cards for a previously prepared shoes made for his (gambler’s) gain.All the above methods of trick still take place in fraudulent gambling-houses.
