Poker Cheating Devices

Cheating with cards has become an important part of poker gambling. Some cheaters use entire teams to perform different tasks, such as stacking, dealing, etc. Some card cheats mark the deck with their fingernails, while others use poker chips. Others use more complex techniques such as burning the top card or a sequence of cards in order to read the opponent’s hand before dealing. Some cheaters use cold decks or special decks that are stacked in advance to guarantee a certain outcome.

The invisible ink card scanner is one of the more popular cheating devices. This device can be used to scan a deck’s back and reveal the numbers and suits. It works by using an IR lens or light that can’t be detected by contact lenses or glasses. It is also easy to hide. It can be hidden in items like a watch, power bank, lighter, or even a cuff.

A modified smartphone can be another useful tool for poker cheating. A recent hacker was able to turn a Samsung Galaxy Core into a poker-cheating device with an external scanning camera. According to Bursztein, the device is designed to look like a normal Android phone but contains all of its internal poker-cheating hardware. The hacker was able to purchase an activation key for the device through an online black market.

This type of cheating device uses a poker scanner camera that scans the barcodes on the decks of cards. It then sends the information to your phone. It can tell if you are holding the best hand, and also how many chips will you win.
