Roulette Past Posting

Past posting in roulette is one of the oldest tricks in the book, and it’s still plaguing the industry, Joseph said. It’s also quite simple — cheaters place their chips on the winning number after the ball has dropped in the roulette wheel. Usually one player in on the scheme will distract the dealer, and a second player will put his chips, with his conspirator’s different colored chips underneath, on the winning number. If the second player is caught, his chips will be removed, but the first player’s chips will remain.
