There's a famous old adage that says, "You can't beat the house," but that hasn't stopped countless people from trying to cheat gaming establishments. It raises the question: what happens if you get caught cheating at a casino? With 40 million yearly visitors flocking to Las Vegas, it makes sense that at least a handful of those folks arrive in town with the intention of cheating the house.
Over the years, the ways casinos handle cheaters have evolved from the downright brutal—true vigilante justice—to the more or less humane. But gaming establishments are wise to the ever-growing list of cheating options out there, and they monitor players carefully. If you've wondered what to do if a casino catches you cheating, much of what happens depends on the policies of the individual casino, as well as the laws of the state you're in. You probably won't get beat up like you see in the movies, but the consequences are pretty serious nonetheless.
