Despite several years have passed after the alleged incident, four people believed to be involved in the dice sliding scheme are being investigated

A group that allegedly cheated for multiple days at a casino on the Las Vegas Strip is being investigated. The incident dates back to November and December 2021, when four people, allegedly involved in the activity were able to collect more than $200,000 in winnings by using a dice sliding scheme, a report released by 8News Now reveals.

The sliding dice scheme isn’t anything new. It can involve multiple people in order to cheat casinos and secure easy winnings. The way it works is that the person who needs to throw the dice at a craps table, for example, would signal an accomplice for a bet and then instead of throwing the dice, they simply slide them. This allows the person that holds the dice to manipulate the outcome of the game round and win.
