One safe bet at Cincinnati casino? Some will cheat

CINCINNATI (AP) — One of the safest bets at a new casino set to open in Cincinnati this spring is that cheaters will be among the gamblers, targeting dealers who have only dealt cards in a training room.

But there also will be hundreds of surveillance cameras, pit bosses with years of experience and about a dozen agents with the Ohio Casino Control Commission all working to spot and stop cheating.

Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati will be the last of four voter-approved casinos to open in the state, all in less than 12 months. Casinos in Cleveland, Toledo and Columbus have already opened.

Since then, the commission says more than 60 people have been charged with cheating, or about 10 each month since the first casino opened in Cleveland.
