I’m not reading no article, sorry. But I reckon chances are if you are caught doing one of those “cheat / not-cheat” moves, you’re still gonna get arrested and go to jail/prison, as I’m sure it can fall under a multitude of illegal stuffs.


Considering arrests have been made in MD for legal card counting, if you try this BS “loophole” you are most certainly going to jail.

I guess you didnt follow up on the arrests for legal card counting in Maryland

The person got a six figure lawsuit settlement

https://bj21.com/category/patron-abuse/pages/maryland-police-officers-settle-with-falsely-imprisoned-card-counter

Based on the current status of the law an arrest for something that is not legal amounts to false arrest

Law is reactive not proactive You can only be arrested for something that is already illegal on the books. Not for something someone thinks should be illegal

I followed them closely.

My point is that you are 100% going to get arrested, charged, and maybe or maybe not convicted under a theft statute.

No amount of money you could make pinching bets or sliding dice is going to make it worth going through the wringer of the criminal justice system.

Well like I said its not my cup of tea

So far the article says the casinos have only been trespassing those caught. Something tells me its not as easy as you think to prosecute

Until they update the laws at least

According to the article MGM National Harbor caught 172 people cheating in 2017 and only evicted them from the property.

Precisely why they want the laws against cheating enacted
