Invisible Ink Poker Cheat

Invisible Ink Poker Cheat

Tuesday, 26 August 2014

An American poker player has been banned from playing in casinos in the state of Connecticut after admitting to using invisible ink to cheat.

55-year-old Bruce Koloshi marked cards using the special substance, thinking that only he'd be able to see it using special contact lenses.

Unfortunately for Koloshi, casino surveillance operators at the Mohegan Sun could see it too when watching footage in black and white rather than colour. They subsequently informed the state police.

Koloshi pleaded guilty to the charge and was given a 10-month jail sentence (he'd served 10 months since his initial arrest).
