Berlin restaurant Raid

Fraud attempt with radioactive discovered in a Berlin restaurant

By Sophie Couard

This is not the first time that we've read about some unscrupulous person trying to beat the system. Not too long ago, we wrote about a robbery and carjacking at the Bellagio on the famous Las Vegas Strip. Another story we wrote about involved three men who came up with a scheme to cheat at Blackjacks at Dakota Sioux Casino in North Dakota, US. This next story shows the extent to which criminals will go to cheat in pursuit of money.

The Scheme

Police were involved in a raid at a Berlin Restaurant where they found playing cards that had been laced with a radioactive substance, in a brazen attempt to mark the cards. The detectives believe that part of the scheme involved players who would wear hidden detectors on their persons, allowing them to identify certain cards.

Detective Work

The scheme was unearthed after what was intended to be a routine check at a waste treatment facility revealed a heightened level of radioactivity in a garbage truck. After an investigation the vehicle was discovered to have visited a Berlin restaurant not licensed for gambling. Upon a subsequent raid, Detectives found 13 iodine-125 laced playing cards. A 41 year old woman was arrested and could face a prison term of up to 5 years. German authorities subsequently quarantined the area so they could clean it up from any contamination.

The Lesson of this Story

No matter what casino game you play, it is never a good idea to use illegal means to obtain an unfair advantage as it can end in fines and prison sentences. The motivation for playing a few rounds of a slot or table game should primarily be for the fun, while the chance to win dream prizes from progressive jackpot such as Joker Millions, Mega Fortune or Mega Moolah should be treated like the cherry on the cake. We've got a huge selection of slots for you to choose from so visit SlotsMillion, Videoslots, LeoVegas and Dunder Casino for a fair chance at big prizes!
