SD Gaming Commission To Look Into Reports Of Cheating In Deadwood

DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota’s gambling commission is looking into reports of cheating at poker tables in the western gambling town of Deadwood.

Member Dennis Duncan says the state Commission on Gaming has received numerous informal complaints the past couple of years of players working together in poker games to obtain the chips of opponents. He says it’s the commission’s responsibility to ensure the integrity of the games.

The commission has approved hiring a consultant to look into the validity of the collusion claims, and to provide recommendations to casinos on identifying cheating at poker tables.

The Deadwood Gaming Association supports the move. Executive Director Mike Rodman says the industry doesn’t want its reputation tarnished “by rumor, innuendo and disgruntled patrons’ blogs.”
