CINCINNATI (AP) — Prosecutors in Cincinnati are expected to announce charges Tuesday against alleged cheaters at Ohio's fourth and newest casino.
The Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office has set a 9 a.m. news conference to release details about cheaters at table games.
Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati opened almost three months ago. It has hundreds of surveillance cameras, pit bosses with years of experience, and about a dozen state agents on the lookout.
Still, cheaters show up.
The state has caught about 10 each month since the first of four casinos opened in Cleveland a year ago.
State officials say cheaters not only steal from the house, but also Ohio's counties, cities and school districts.
That's because the state collects 33 percent in gross revenue taxes from the casinos — about $203 million in one year.
