In American Roulette, Richard Marcus tells his never-before-heard story, of ripping off casis. The book follows Marcus, along with several of the world's great professional casi cheaters, as he travels from Las Vegas to London and Monte Carlo, pilfering large sums of money from casis by performing sleight of hand magic tricks with gaming chips. As skilled cheaters, they back up their moves with psychological setups to convince pit bosses that they're watching legitimate high rollers getting lucky, while in fact they're being ripped off blind. With the exploding growth of casi gambling, heightened by Indian reservation and riverboat expansion, more and more elaborate casi cheaters are illegally assaulting the green-felt, getting rich off of vice casi personnel. Richard Marcus's insider story is a window into the hidden world of intriguing personalities and tense situations he encounters as a member of expert casi-cheating teams who use their wits to turn the odds upside down and earn millions. American Roulette is a fascinating story t only for those who occasionally casi-gamble, but for everyone with a little larceny in their heart.
Richard Marcus has done nothing but cheat gambling casinos since he was twenty-one. He was born in New York and has lived all over the world.
