blackjackIn the first part of the article I described several ways of cheating performed by casinos. Now let’s see how players tend to cheat casinos back.

Some casinos prohibit drinking during Blackjack games, while others offer alcoholic drinks but might ask you to leave a game in case you’re already unconscious.
