Ohio casino dealer charged for giving tips to customers

Published: Wed, July 9, 2014 @ 3:23 p.m.

WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) — An Ohio man has been charged with giving Pennsylvania gamblers tips on how to win at the roulette table.

The Washington Observer-Reporter reports that state police filed charges against 56-year-old Robert M. Valle of Wintersville, accusing him of telling a confidential informant to place wagers on certain numbers at the Meadows Casino to increase his odds of winning.

Valle allegedly told the informant he used the same techniques to help other patrons win money at the casino. He’s charged with misdemeanor counts of violating gaming acts by tricking or defrauding the table and conspiracy.

Valle was sent a summons. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 15.

He’s charged with misdemeanor counts of violating gaming acts by tricking or defrauding the table and conspiracy? Unless the casino is violating rules by manipulating the outcome of the wheels stopping, (which is violation by the casino) he has no way to know the outcome of a spin of the wheel. I think a good attorney will make a mockery of this nonsense.

Sounds like they should charge the casino with the same charges.

I am certain this tipster was only telling the players, different LEGAL ways to play roulette. Most people who play roulette are not aware of all the MANY different ways to indulge. There is no way to know what number the roulette ball will land on....sooo, this is a total ridiculous charge against this nice, game advisor man.
