MGM National Harbor Baccarat Dealer Accused of Orchestrating Cheating Scheme

Posted by freemexy on March 27th, 2019

A baccarat dealer at MGM National Harbor Casino in Maryland was charged with conspiracy charges by federal prosecutors after being accused of working with a partner on a cheating scheme. 카지노사이트 According to prosecutors, Zhang engineered the scheme by exposing a portion of the baccarat deck to his co-conspirator. That partner would then take a picture of the deck, and when Zhang ensured that the exposed portion of the deck wasn’t shuffled, the co-conspirator was able to know what cards would be appearing in the coming hands. Zhang is facing accusations that he called his partner to arrange the operation and to seek a portion of the money won through the scheme. Lawyers representing Zhang have not commented on the charges. Officials allege that the cheating scheme took place in September 2017. Other conspirators are also suspected to have taken part in the operation. The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency, which oversees the six casinos in Maryland, has said that it was notified about the investigation. The MGM National Harbor released its own statement detailing its role in the investigation. “Ming Zhang is no longer employed by MGM National Harbor,” read a statement from casino spokesman Malik Husser. “We have provided our full cooperation with authorities throughout this investigation.”Baccarat is a game in which players attempt to predict which of two hands - named player and banker, though both are available to bet on in the modern form of the game - will finish with a higher score. Hands are scored similarly to blackjack, but only the final digit of the total score matters, making nine the best possible hand. Because baccarat has a relatively low house edge, a comfortable pace of play, and requires no skill from players, it has become an extremely popular game among high rollers, especially in Asia. In traditional high-stakes games, players and dealers will slow down the pace of the game further by spending more time handling the cards and engaging in superstitious rituals.
