If you have ever played poker in a casino, chances are you have encountered video poker machines. Similar to slot machines but featuring 52-card decks instead of three reels and using an RNG to shuffle and distribute cards randomly – some people may wonder whether there are ways to cheat at these games; we will discuss some potential strategies here.

One method of cheating a poker machine is placing chips in front of the winning number after the wheel has stopped spinning, although this technique doesn’t always work and may be easily detected by surveillance cameras. Another popular tactic to cheat poker machines involves palming desirable cards before swapping them out with lesser attractive ones before playing them; this more subtle form of cheating is harder to detect.

Recently, a team of Russian mathematicians made headlines when they cracked US poker machines by outwitting their RNG. These mathematical criminals could calculate the chances of receiving certain cards based on when they were dealt; furthermore they could pinpoint where each poker machine fell within its pseudo-random number sequence to know exactly when and how to play.

Criminals were able to accurately predict cards in a hand as well as what other cards would be replaced. With this knowledge in hand, these criminals could then predict the outcome of games with this information. Unfortunately, casinos eventually learned of this scheme and revised their procedures; nevertheless, such cheating still happens and players must keep an eye out for any suspicious activity that may take place in real-life casinos.

Some individuals have attempted to exploit software glitches to cheat poker machines. By placing their stakes strategically, they found an approach which caused a game to payout a jackpot – however this can be seen as fraudulence by casinos who could refuse to honor winnings due to this method of cheating.

Other types of poker cheating include hole card reading and past posting. Hole card reading does not count as cheating when done mentally; however, when used with devices to count cards it becomes illegal. Past posting in roulette involves distracting the dealer while an accomplice puts their chips with help from different colored chips on an expected winning number – considered past posting by poker rules.

The popular “shaved and stringed coin cheating trick” involved filing down coins to reduce their size before attaching them to string. Cheaters then used this scam to drop their coin into a slot while pulling arm. By manipulating its placement on reels, cheaters could maintain control of where it landed – now obsolete since most mechanical machines have advanced electronic systems.
