1.5 Million USD: The Impact of A Non Shuffled Deck of Cards

September 4, 2012 5:30 pm

We had spotted several gambling stats in the past – we spotted this today:

“No one at the Nugget could decipher why the players were so lucky, though, and the casino let the game go on till 10:18 p.m. When it ended, the house had lost a little more than $1.5 million.

There was no complex scheme, but it wasn’t lady luck, either. Someone in Kansas City allegedly had forgotten to turn on the automatic shuffler before the cards got shipped out. Since the cards were never shuffled at the plant – the casino doesn’t shuffle them again – the same patterns kept repeating in game 802. The players noticed, kept on betting and upped their wagers.”
