Poker player spared jail after he attempted to cheat Aspers Casino.
34-year-old Ozgur Aytekin from London and three accomplices tried to swindle the Swansea casino while playing three-card poker by passing cards to each other under the table. Not surprisingly, the less than subtle fraud was spotted by the casino's CCTV.Swansea Magistrates' Court heard how Aytekin and one of his accomplices had regular discussions and showed each other their cards while a third man distracted the dealer. Aytekin and his accomplice would then remove their bottom cards under the table and swap them, ensuring a winning hand.The casino was defrauded out of £75 with a further £425 discovered at a cash table. Aytekin pleaded guilty to cheating at gambling and was sentenced to four weeks in prison suspended for 12 months. He must also undertake 100 hours unpaid work and pay £85 costs and £21 compensation.One of Aytekin's accomplices was jailed for four weeks earlier this year but the two other men involved are still at large.
