Recently in London a casino cheat who used hi-tech spy equipment to win up to £250,000 was jailed for nine months. If the UK casinos get the go ahead casinos cheaters will be just outside the doors.

The World’s Greatest Gambling Scams details the best scams ever pulled off in the adrenaline-fuelled gambling world. They range from those relying on basic sleight-of-hand manoeuvres to those that utilise gadgets such as the cameras used in the London scam, based on the very latest high-tech wizardry, including:

* the famous Ritz Roulette Scam that used mini-computers and cell phones to determine on what number the roulette ball would drop

* big-action baccarat games in which the dealers merely pretended to shuffle the cards

* a dye solution for marking casino cards that can only be seen with special contact lenses and disappears without trace an hour after its application

* a tiny weightless receiver embedded into a roulette ball and controlled by a radio transmitter hidden in a pack of Marlboro cigarettes.

Richard Marcus (www.richardmarcusbooks.com) has appeared on television in the UK on the Challenge TV series on gambling scams. He appeared and has also had a successful career as casino cheat which he detailed in American Roulette and Great Casino Heist.

As well as describing the scams from their inception to implementation, Marcus introduces us to the vastly diverse characters who carried them out and analyses what made them tick.
