Interesting excerpts from the article :

This post exposes how real-world highly advanced poker cheating devices work.

In 2015, I stumbled upon a post in an underground forum, discussing how someone was ripped off at a poker table by a very advanced poker cheating device.

From what I understood at that time, the post being in Chinese, the device was able to remotely read card markings to inform the cheater who will win the next hand.

Intrigued, I decided to follow the trail of this fabled device to see if people were indeed cheating at poker using devices that would fit naturally into a James Bond movie.

Without spoiling too much of the rest of this post, let’s just say that the high-end cheating device that I was able to get my hands on far exceeded my expectations and it really is an outstanding piece of technology.

Upon ordering the poker cheating device I kinda expected, based on the screenshots I had seen early on, to get a dedicated piece of hardware that kinda looked like a fake phone.

However, to my surprise, the device, showcased in the picture above, far exceeded my expectations by being a fully functional phone with extra hardware dedicated to cheating. Also to my surprise, the device not only allows to cheat at Poker but to cheat at almost any kind of card games you can think of.

Using a modified phone as a cheating device offers the key advantage that it is impossible to tell that it is a cheating device unless you know what to look for. It is also a decent smartphone that can make phone calls and run all the apps you love.

Originally based on my investigation, I thought these devices were mostly used in Asia, which could explain the poor translation. However, following the Defcon talk, anonymous sources told me that these devices are indeed actively used in the US, including Vegas, to rip people off.

Conclusion

High-end poker cheating devices are real and highly efficient. The complexity and the build quality of these devices as well as the number of games they support indicate that there is a very profitable and active black market for gambling cheating devices
