COLUMBUS – During today’s meeting of the Ohio Casino Control Commission, members of the Commission voted to place Bruce Adams, Jr. of Cleveland on Ohio’s Involuntary Exclusion List.
Adams, a former roulette dealer at Horseshoe Casino Cleveland, was added to the list for placing winning wagers on behalf of individuals with chips that had not been paid for, moving losing wagers to winning positions, moving winning wagers to positions that received a higher payout, permitting winning wagers after the outcome of the game had been determined, and paying winning wagers to individuals in the amount of $5 per chip, rather than the correct amount of $1 per chip. In all, his actions resulted in a loss of $42,200.
The Commission revoked Adams’ gaming employee license in November 2013, and he pled guilty in January to one count of grand theft.
“Mr. Adams’ conduct shows his disregard for Ohio’s gaming laws and warrants his inclusion on Ohio’s Involuntary Exclusion List,” said Jo Ann Davidson, Chair of the Commission. “The Commission will continue to take any and all actions necessary to uphold the law and the integrity of casino gaming in Ohio.”
Individuals placed on the Involuntary Exclusion List are prohibited from entering any casino facility in Ohio.
