The basics of cheating at casino
Casino cheating is considered to be the actions that are prohibited by the casinos' rules. Cheating is illegal anyway, but the security measures may vary and deviate depending on the casinos jurisdiction. For example, in Nevada State the casino cheating is considered to be the felony under the law sanctions of Nevada. However, under many other jurisdictions the specific status may not exist at all, but casino cheating may be treated more likely like the fraud and dealt appropriately by the casino authorities.
Land casino cheating methods are applied by the skillful cheaters, despite all the prohibitions either of the law or of the particular casino. The most widely used cheating methods are: Past posting, hand mucking, card marking, second dealing, top hatting, electronic shuffling machines, collusion, etc.

Usually the casinos resort to cheating combat with the help of particular procedures such as particular standardized ways of cards shuffling, dealing them, keeping, storing, retrieving from the decks and opening the new decks of the playing cards.
In addition, each player should remember that the gambling establishments of the new generation have got the "eyes in the sky" that is an extensive array of various cameras and motion recorders which can easily monitor the cheaters in a cheating process and record all the actions in a casino.
Some casinos even can use software for facial recognition that enables the casino to recognize the person even being effectively disguised to detect already well-known cheats or card counters and advantage different players as soon as they enter the casino.
