Blackjack Win Helps Catch a Criminal 01.03.2012

Blackjack News

A man wanted by police for dealing crack, PCP and cocaine has been caught whilst trying to cash out his winnings at a casino after a game of blackjack. Police had been looking for the man ever since he was caught selling crack to an acquaintance, but he managed to flee the scene before police could arrest him. The acquaintance was a high school friend of the wanted man who had agreed to help police frame the criminal in return for a reduced penalty.

Ever since police attempted to catch the criminal, they had been looking for him but to no avail. However, the man did not manage to stay on the run for too long as a casino in Pennsylvania managed to identify him whilst checking his ID. He had been seated at a blackjack table escalating an impressive $2,500 before deciding to cash out his winnings.

Unbeknownst to the man, an arrest warrant had been in circulation ever since he escaped from police. As the man handed over his ID card whilst exchanging chips for cash, the cashier managed to identify him and notify police. The man will now most likely face a prison sentence, and his $2,500 will be kept by police until he is released.

This comical news item certainly serves as a reminder that clever casino players need not break any laws in order to reap big rewards. Blackjack is an exceptional casino game in that the house edge can be manipulated by counting cards. People get rich playing blackjack, and this is even the case if you prefer to play online casino games - these days you can play live dealer blackjack at great online casino sites like 888 Casino.
