Pennsylvania State Police arrested a customer and table dealer late last week after accusing the duo of cheating on an electronic craps game at the Mohegan Pennsylvania.
52 year-old Jason Richard Kutney of Bear Creek, an electronic craps dealer at the Mohegan is accused of pressing a button on the game early allowing casino player, Louis Attilo Grasso, 66, to see the final numbers on the dice before placing his final bet.
The scheme allowed Grasso to take home $17,521 on December 30th and then, on January 5th, the player won $4,125 with Kutney’s help.
Casino security took notice after Kutney’s table registered a “sudden large win rate,” according to the charging documents in the case.
Once security began to monitor Kutney through surveillance video, they discovered the dealer pressed the dice button early nine times. Bettors were provided up to 20 seconds to place their wager after seeing the winning numbers on the dice.
When questioned by authorities, Kutney admitted to pressing the button on the electronic machine early for Grasso to view the numbers on the dice.
Grasso exercised his right to remain silent and requested the assistance of an attorney when questioned by investigators.
