Quote:
Oakley, 54, was arrested at Cosmopolitan, a hotel and casino on The Strip, on Sunday after trying to pull a $100 chip during a gambling session. It is unclear what game Oakley was playing, but Oakley “was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known,” officials from the Nevada Gaming Board said. Security tapes confirmed his intent to cheat.

That mightve worked way back when but he should've known better than to try that in today's modern casinos where everybody and everything is watching.

My first five minutes as a dealer back in 1977 an 80+yo lady wearing a Tam and speaking with a Scottish brogue capped a $3 bet with 3 greens ($75)...I guess I looked a little green myself
I said 'really?' kicked them off the top of the stack and kept on dealing...the floorman laughed and patted me on the back
