Apparently, Aces has agreed to turn state’s evidence against his criminal cronies in Vegas, in order to save himself from a life in prison. With all eyes on Lake Tahoe, a rogues’ gallery of killers collides in a mad race to the Nomad Casino penthouse suite, where they hope to hit the jackpot and wipe out Aces.

High-tech poker cheat jailed

As reported by Sky UK News, A high-tech poker cheat who used an array of spy equipment to pocket an estimated £250,000 was sentenced today by London’s Southwark Crown Court.

Yau Yiv Lam, 45, a chef, and his two partners in crime, Fan Leung Tsang, 41, and Bit Chai Wong, 39, chalked up a string of spectacular wins in casinos throughout London using miniature cameras hidden in their sleeves and virtually invisible earpieces.

But as Lam filmed cards dealt by the croupier, with the footage being beamed to an accomplice in a van outside the casino equipped with video recorders and screen monitors, unbeknown to the trio, The Mint Casino, in conjunction with the police, were filming their every move.

Southwark Crown Court was told the images were played in slow motion so the cards could be identified as they were placed face down on the table. The information was then relayed to a third gang member at the table.

Police believe the gang targeted a total of six of the capital’s 25 gambling joints, making as much as £38,000 in just one week. All three pleaded guilty to one count of “cheating at play” under the 1846 Gaming Act. Lam was jailed for nine months, with Tsang and Wong being given nine-month prison sentences, which were suspended for two years.
