Gambling Pro Archie Karas Charged With Defrauding Casino

Industry experts estimate that casinos nationwide lose tens of millions of dollars a year in various cheating scams.

“This defendant’s luck ran out thanks to extraordinary cooperation between several different law enforcement agencies who worked together to investigate and prosecute this case,” said county District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis.

If convicted, Karas, whose real name is Anargyros Karabourniotis, faces a maximum penalty of three years in prison.

(Reporting by Marty Graham; Editing by Steve Gorman, Bernard Orr)

But authorities said Karas has been accused of cheating before.

He is considered by many to have been the greatest gambler of all time and often has been compared with Nick “the Greek” Dandolos, another high-stakes gambler and high roller who died in 1966.

. Karas, 62, best known for reputedly building a beginning stake of $50 into a $40 million fortune during a record three-year winning streak, was taken into custody on Tuesday at his Las Vegas home, the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office said on Friday.

According to prosecutors, Karas was spotted by surveillance cameras marking cards – using tiny smudges of dye secretly wiped onto the backs of jacks, queens, kings and aces – while playing blackjack in July at the Indian-owned Barona Resort and Casino in Lakeside, California.

The marks gave Karas an unfair advantage by helping him identify the value of cards before they were dealt as he chose whether to take another card, or hold, in an effort to reach the winning value of 21 without going over, prosecutors said.

Karas set the record for the largest and longest documented winning streak in gambling history from 1992 to 1995, arriving in Las Vegas with $50 in his pocket and going on to amass $40 million from high-stakes poker.

The scheme worked so well that he managed to cheat the casino out of more than $8,000 before he was caught, district attorney’s office spokesman Steve Walker said.

He subsequently lost most of those winnings at baccarat and dice games in three weeks, according to Tom Sexton, who publishes the online gambling magazine Poker News. Karas returned to the poker table many times, often with backers, and cleaned out many of the best players in the world, according to Sexton.

California Justice Department spokeswoman Michelle Gregory said Karas was doing the marking with dye inserted into a hollowed-out gambling chip that he would inconspicuously swipe over the cards while playing through a deck.

SAN DIEGO (Reuters) – World-renowned professional poker player Archie Karas, has been arrested on charges of cheating and defrauding a casino after authorities say he was caught marking cards at a California blackjack table.

He will be extradited to San Diego to face a criminal complaint filed last week charging him with burglary, winning by fraudulent means and cheating, the prosecutor’s office said.

A search warrant executed on Karas’s home turned up hollowed-out chips from other casinos, but so far no other gambling establishments have lodged complaints against him, Gregory said.


By Marty Graham

“The Nevada Gaming Control Board has investigated Karas on multiple occasions resulting in four arrests,” said Karl Bennison, that agency’s enforcement chief, said in a statement. “Karas has been a threat to the gaming industry in many jurisdictions.”

San Diego County has 19 federally recognized Indian tribes and 10 Indian casinos, more than any other county in the United States

Please help!

I am relatively new to betting, so I am confused about this moneyline. It is for Italian Serie A soccer.

(just moneyline here)

Lazio +180

Juventus +155

Draw +200. If I were to bet $30 on each team, I would come out better than the $60 in the account. Is this correct, or am I missing something? My impression was that the book always had to even out, make it so you could only win one way. right now, I only have $60 in my bodog account. With Lazio, I would make $54 (+30 = $84) and Juventus I would make $46.50 (+$30 = $76.50). I’m not putting this question very clearly, but I’m confused on the moneyline. If one of the two win, and do not draw, I would make money

“I wanted to open the debate but I didn’t want to close it.

By Sam Holden

“It’s not a celebratory book about sport,” she told Reuters. What you do matters on and off the field.”

So what drove the author to continue with the book?

LONDON, (Reuters) – Australian Anna Krien has become the second woman to land the William Hill Sports Book of the Year award in its 26-year history.


“Many mainstream sports writers that I tried to interview also cut me off because they didn’t think I had the right to write the book,” said Krien, referring to her lack of a sporting background.

“I think it needs more people to get involved and talk about it.”

Krien, who had a child while writing the book, described the task as more labour intensive than a labour of love and said she had to overcome much opposition from people involved in the sport.

(Editing by Tony Jimenez)

LONDON, Thu Nov 27, 2014 11:20pm IST

Her book ‘Night Games: Sex, Power and a Journey into the Dark Heart of Sport’, about the rape trial of a young Australian Rules footballer, beat six other nominees to the 26,000 pounds ($40,879) prize including the autobiography of former Wales and British Lions rugby player Gareth Thomas.

Although the book is about Australian Rules, Krien said the book should resonate throughout sport.

The judges described the book as a “balanced yet fearless” exploration of the behaviour of sportsmen and their treatment of women and it was an essential, if uncomfortable, read.

Krien, who matched Laura Hillenbrand’s 2001 feat for ‘Seabiscuit: The True Story of Three Men and a Racehorse’, said on Thursday that the tough subject matter made it a brave choice for the judges.

“The importance of the subject,” said Krien. You’re a role model whether you like it or not. “It’s about the dark side of sport…it can be pretty ugly.”

“Sport is a great lens to look at issues other than just the spectacle in front of your eyes,” she explained.

“It was very much a turf war.”

“There was the obvious opposition from the football fraternity saying, ‘Don’t go there, this is something we don’t talk about’,” she added.

Additionally, there has already been grumblings in Louisiana that an online gambling bill will be introduced this year, after Louisiana Gaming Control Board chairman Ronnie Jones presented the regulatory body’s findings to the legislature, where Jones remarked of online gamblers in Louisiana, “They’re playing anyway, but it’s not regulated by the government, it’s not sanctioned by the government or taxed by the state.”

Of course, any bill passed by the legislature would have to also get by the desk of Bobby Jindal and his veto pen.

As points out in this news story, Jindal is leaving out a major piece of information in his anti-online gambling remarks; the fact that Louisiana offers their residents a number of gambling options.

Jindal’s Double Standard

What Jindal is failing to mention is that online gambling has been available, uninterrupted, in the United States since the 1990′s; just in an unregulated form. It is already available 24/7 on any cell phone or computer, whether you live in a state that has legalized and regulated it or not.

In an excellent summary of the situation that can be found at, Jindal comes out not only against online gambling expansion in Louisiana, but also as an advocate for a federal ban of online gambling by overturning the recent change in the Department of Justice’s interpretation of the 1961 Wire Act, which now states that the wire act only applies to sport-betting, and not to intrastate online gambling.

What Jindal and Adelson are essentially asking for is for the status quo: for online poker players in the US to continue playing on less restrictive unregulated offshore sites.

Luckily for online gambling proponents it would seem that Louisiana’s legislature is not in lockstep with the Governor, as a survey conducted by that was cited in the article lists Louisiana as one of the 10 states most likely to consider online gambling expansion.

So it would seem that Governor Jindal isn’t against gambling per se; he is against one specific type of gambling; the type that occurs online.

Jindal’s editorial also makes the unfortunate mistake of echoing one of Sheldon Adelson’s key talking points:

In their crusade to ban online gambling, Sheldon Adelson and his anti-online gambling group, the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling (CSIG), have picked up a powerful and influential ally in Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.

This new stance by the DOJ paved the way for states to pass online gambling legislation -three did: New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware– and now Adelson and his followers are pushing for that opinion to be overturned by Congress, whom they hope will pass a “Wire Act Fix” that would outlaw virtually all forms of online gambling.

Louisiana Legislature Disagrees

Jindal’s Lack Of Research

Jindal, a bastion of social conservatism, came out against online gambling in an editorial he penned for called Internet gambling a bad bet for American middle class, where his arguments echo of those of Adelson and his CSIG group.

“A powerful pressure campaign out of Washington led by special interests is leading the push to make casino gambling available 24/7 on cellphones and computers, with three states already authorizing it.”

The Louisiana legislature commissioned a study on online gambling in March of 2013, led by Representative Mike Huval who feels, “Louisiana has the potential to benefit economically by legalizing Internet gaming.”

If Jindal’s concern is the predatory nature of online gambling (his words not mine) how does he mesh that conclusion with the fact that his state offers video poker machines in bars, gas stations, and restaurants? This seems to be the very definition of predatory gambling.

The difference between the regulating online gambling and passing an ineffective ban, is that the states that have passed online gambling bills are now offering their residents consumer protections and a regulated environment, not to mention hefty licensing fees and tax revenue coming directly from the online gaming sites -In two months New Jersey has pocketed over $2.5 million in tax revenue alone from the fledgling industry.
