Baker man tries to cheat casino, State Police claim _lowres

Clifford Profit

State Police gaming officials arrested a 27-year-old man accused of cheating at the craps table Sunday at the Hollywood Casino in Baton Rouge.

Casino officials notified investigators that man later identified as Clifford Profit was placing bets on winning markers after the dice was thrown, Lt. J.B. Slaton, a State Police spokesman, said. He did that to increase his winnings.

Slaton said that type of betting is seen at the roulette table and other casino games.

“I think its more prevalent on the games where they think they can slide more chips on their stack when the dealer isn’t looking,” Slaton said.

Profit, 2540 Hovey Ave., Baker, was booked into Parish Prison on counts of swindling and cheating, booking records show.
