Detroit MotorCity Casino Dealer Involved in Scam

A local Detroit news publication reported a scam involving six gamblers, one of which was a former poker dealer, which exploited Detroit's MotorCity Casino.

The five gamblers had an arrangement with the dealer that allowed them to lose and still receive cash winnings or simply not pay for their bets.

The Detroit Free Press reported “According to Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, whose office is prosecuting the group, the central figure in the alleged scheme is the ex-poker dealer, Darryl Green, 53, of Detroit, who is accused of making payouts on losing bets, or simply not collecting payment on lost bets. This happened during 2014, though Schuette said Green knew the six gamblers who were in on the scheme before the cheating was discovered, and associated with them afterward as well.”

Once the casino became suspicious they sought an investigation by the Michigan State Police and now all the individuals involved in the scam face a series of charges including:

· One count of conspiracy to cheat at a gambling game, a five-year felony;

· One count of gambling activities, a 10-year felony;

· One count of conspiracy to commit larceny in a building, a four-year felony;

· One count of larceny in a building, a four-year felony.

The scheme seems to have been quite a simple one lacking any elaborate details. It’s hard to believe that this group planned to get away with it. The croupier has since left his job with casino and considering that the offenses occurred in 2014, it has taken some to catch up to him and his cohorts.

Each of those involved ending up turning themselves in and the initial court hearing is scheduled for March 1, 2016.
