A slot machine cheating syndicate is arrested in Singapore

A cheating syndicate which operated at a number of casinos throughout the world, including the United States, Europe and Macau has been busted by Singaporean authorities. The cheating syndicate consists of a team leader, and a number of players. The team leader would use electronic devices to record the play patterns of particular brand slot machines before uploading the data to a server for analysis and decoding. The decoded data would then be sent back to the team leader who would distribute it to the players. Armed with this information, the players would return to the analyzed slot machines with their electronic devices and continue to play the machines while waiting for the devices to alert them prior to the next big win. In terms of reward, the players would keep 10% of the winnings, while the team leader would keep 5% of the winnings from each player. The remainder of the money would go back to the syndicate.

As a result of this slot machine scam, team leader, Czech national Rodoslav Skubnik won $20,000 and was sentenced to 22 months in prison after admitting to three charges of cheating at the casinos in Resorts World Sentosa and Marina Bay Sands. Skubnik’s accomplices, Vladislav Logachev and Andrei Egorov are yet to be sentenced.
