LAS VEGAS – A 28-year-old woman was arrested last week for allegedly cheating while working as a baccarat dealer at a Summerlin casino.
Yuxuan Leng was arrested by agents with the Nevada Gaming Control Board on Nov. 2 on charges of attempting to cheat at a gambling game and two counts of cheating at a gambling game.
According to an arrest affidavit, investigators received a report in May 2022 that two baccarat dealers at the Rampart Casino at the Resort at Summerlin had been observed cheating with players on multiple occasions.
Surveillance footage showed that dealers, including Leng, were flashing the players gaming cards and revealing the outcome of the game before the players placed their final bets.
The two players won thousands of dollars, including a combined total of $12,400 during two separate incidents when Leng was dealing.
Leng is scheduled to appear in court again on Dec. 7.
Leng was released on her own recognizance following her arrest.
Leng is expected to appear in court again on Dec. 7, where she will be arraigned on the charges against her. If convicted, she could face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 for each count.
Impact on the Casino Industry
The arrest of Leng is a reminder that casino cheating is a serious crime. Casinos have a number of security measures in place to prevent cheating, but it is important for players to be aware of the different ways that cheating can occur.
If you see something suspicious while playing at a casino, be sure to report it to a casino employee immediately.
