A former blackjack dealer at a Connecticut casino has been charged with conspiring with two gamblers to cheat the casino out of more than $60,000. The Day reports that 49-year-old David C. Peters, of New London, is charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree larceny, first-degree larceny and cheating in connection with the alleged cheating last fall at the Mohegan Sun casino. Tribal police say Peters allowed the players to increase wagers after the time to do so had passed. He also allegedly paid them when they had tied or lost, or diverted cards that would break their hands. Police say one player won nearly $34,000 at Peters’ table. Peters’ attorney, Peter Catania, said Thursday he is still reviewing the facts of the case and it would be premature to comment.

Death, taxes, and blackjack dealers helping players cheat. It seems these days that these are the only things certain in any blackjack player’s life.

This week it was reported that a 49-year-old dealer at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut has been charged with helping players cheat at the game to the tune of $60,000. David C. Peters of New London, Connecticut is facing charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree larceny, first-degree larceny, and cheating, all related to his former job at the casino. He allegedly helped players cheat by allowing them to increase wagers after the game’s rules allow them to, as well as paying out when hands tied or lost, and worked to eliminate cards that would have busted their hands.

Right now the defendant hasn’t issued a comment, nor has his attorney. Details on charges related to the cheating players also haven’t been released, although we reckon that they’ll be facing some trouble as well.
