They call Vegas “Sin City,” but this isn’t what they had in mind. It’s often in a casino’s best interest to cut a cheater loose, because it means they’ll head off to the competition and hopefully bilk them out of some money. But with margins getting tighter, more and more casinos are working together to keep cheaters out. One tool that they use is the Surveillance Information Network or SIN, created by Viisage Technology. This private networking tool links up over a hundred casinos nationwide and allows them to compare notes on cheaters, high rollers and other important players, as well as alert each other to new scams being run.
