    So I tune into this program “Las Vegas Cheaters,” on Saturday which I thought was the Vegas version of the cheating spouses exposed program. But this was about GAMING and cheating in Vegas. I watched a segment with a guy who used to work for the Gaming Commission. He was like their star employee. His job was to examine the machines, see how they operate, suss out any glitches, ascertain if people can cheat, etc. Well, he got a little too good at his job, and he figured out how to win Keno. Ha ha, got your attention now eh!? Well, he realized that the numbers are NOT chosen randomly as we all assume and that they do follow some pattern. In figuring out the pattern he was able to raise his odds of getting 10 numbers from 3 percent each ticket to 30 percent each ticket. So, of course, he caves into temptation and goes to Altantic City with a buddy. The buddy buys 10 cards and chooses the numbers based on their system. The buddy hit the 10 numbers--$100,000—on the first game.


    Well apparently the Gaming Commission is not a great believer in plain old good luck either. They investigated the two, the genius guy was arrested and fired. Maybe I’m being naïve, but aren’t we ALL trying to figure out ways how to win and beat the machine? I understand the wrongness of him being an insider, but if a regular Joe could figure out how to raise his odds on winning Keno would that be perceived as cheating? It’s the same as the counting cards thing with Blackjack. I just don’t understand why that’s considered cheating either. What about Video Games? It’s like getting arrested because you get too good at playing Sim City or Mortal Combat!


    "I'm sorry I like to add links to the real stories I write about, but I could find nothing on the actual guy or his name. Wish I'd paid better attention. I did get a link for Vegas CHEETAHS but that was no help."

    Thank you for the interesting things. I love Keno too and I always wonder. Sometimes I see figures but no attention from me. Next time I will spent more attention. Lol.
