Blackjack Cheater Sentenced to 6 Years

An American called Phuong Quoc Truong was sentenced to 6 years imprisonment in the federal prison for cheating at the Baccarat and Blackjack tables and making $7 million. As part of his sentence, Troung also has to pay restitution of $5.7 million and fine of $2.8. He will forfeit two houses, a Rolex watch, a 2001 Porsche Carrera, and a lot of jewelry.

In April 2008, Truong confessed that he was the leader of a group of six, who regularly cheated at casinos. The gang operated at 27 casinos under the name of “Tran Organization” in 2002. They used the method of false shuffles, which enabled them to place successful bets on games because they knew the values of the cards that would be dealt next. The group also used sophisticated software and hidden transmitters.

In October 2005, the group was highly successful at the Resorts East Chicago hotel and casino in East Chicago, Indiana, winning $868,000 in just one-and-a-half hour.

Players who are worried about being cheated must play online because it is relatively safer. All online blackjack games are powered by software and are entirely digital; so gaming table cheats cannot bribe dealers or stack decks, a fact that ensures security and fair play.
