In a casino, security measures begin on the floor of the casino. Casino employees monitor all of the games and their patrons. Dealers, for example, are focused on the game they are dealing and are prone to spotting cheating. Table managers and pit bosses keep an eye on the table games, and each of them has someone higher up tracking their movements. It is impossible to keep an eye on every table in a casino without spotting the signs of cheating.

The National Profile Study conducted by Roper Reports GfK NOP surveyed 2,000 adults in the U.S. and found that 24% of respondents rated themselves as casino gamblers. This survey found that nearly half of Americans were over the age of 25 and had some college credits. The average American had no college degree, but nearly half had some college credits and a few dollars in their pocket. The type of game played depends on age, income, and interest.

One way to reduce the chance of being cheated by a casino is to play during off-peak hours. Most casinos are empty between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays. If you want to play quietly, avoid the rush hours. Many players are superstitious and consider changing dealers to improve their luck. Changing dealers can be a good idea, but be aware that the new dealer will probably have a lot of knowledge about the “cool” tricks casinos use to cheat players.
