Online Poker "rife with cheats"
The boom in internet gambling may be about to hit its greatest hurdle
with one of the world’s most famous casino cheats claiming the online
world is far more at risk from cheating than the casinos in which he
Richard Marcus is among an elite of casino cheats and during a
25-year reign he and a small team took casinos in Las Vegas, Atlantic
City, London and Monte Carlo for a reported $5m.
And yet Marcus, who now writes books based on his experiences, claims
the boom in internet gambling which has come along since he went into
early retirement offers even more rich pickings for the
criminally-minded who no longer even have to show their faces to claim
their ill-gotten gains.
Marcus says he knows of systems operating online currently which are
evading detection and making serious money, including systems which in
some online casinos will reveal the other cards on the table.
"There is so much cheating going on," said Marcus.
"Within a short amount of time we are going to see about one in a
hundred people playing honestly. The rest will be using bots or it will
be computers playing against computers."
However, that’s a suggestion one online poker provider was quick to
dismiss though others in the same industry remained tight-lipped in
the face of silicon.com’s enquiries.
