Dustin Marks is known as one of the world’s most famous insider cheats. Not only had he been a casino dealer but he had also been one of the very few cheaters who had managed to cheat the casinos where he worked for several years without anyone ever being able to catch him.
Dustin Marks was born in the 1950s and is known to be one of the most famous insider cheaters in the United States. He had worked in several well known casinos in Las Vegas during the 70s and in the 80s. He had mastered several different cheating methods in blackjack and in dealing techniques over the years.
One of his specialties had been second dealing where he used to peak at the card on top of the deck and then deal the second from top cards to the players while reserving the top card for his partner. Though the technique had been invented and used by many other players before Dustin, he had mastered it in a very commendable way.
Another specialty of Dustin had been false shuffling in single as well as in double decks in the game of blackjack. In all of his jobs as a dealer, his partners would play at his tables and get the winning hand frequently.
A partner would come to his table and would place a $100 or a $25 bet and Dustin would then deal him the first card. Since casinos at that time were already aware of several different cheating methods, the betting amount was kept to $100 and not more in order to avoid any heat from the pit bosses. However, Dustin had managed to perfect his shuffling techniques so well that he was able to manipulate his decks in front of the pit bosses without them knowing it.
While playing with his accomplices, at each hand Dustin used to peak at the top card in a very sneaky way and when there was a high value card he would signal his partner who would then place a high bet and Dustin would ensure that the high value card was dealt to him. This would give them an edge over the casino and would allow them to win plenty of hands.
Dustin had also mastered the trick of false shuffling where he was able to shuffle the cards in such a way that he would get a high value card at the top of his deck which he would then deal to his partner, no matter what position on the table he was sitting in.
For many years, Dustin Marks successfully carried out his scam and in process he won millions of dollars at the casinos where he worked by cheating his bosses. However, the interesting part about his career is that though he made so much of money and cheated right under the noses of the casinos he was never caught even once during his career.
It was only later that Dustin wrote a book in which he talked about all of his adventures that people became aware of his cheating career at the casinos.
