Las Vegas holds a mesmerising charm for gamblers and tourists alike – a kitsch city built in the desert by gangsters as a centre for money-spinning casinos to legitimately fleece punters of cash. This three-part series examines the lengths people will go to, from counting cards and marking decks to computer hacking, to turn the odds in their favour.

Security must stay one step ahead of the “game changers,” cheats who are constantly creating new casino scams; Investigators track notorious cons with inventive devices; Gang members rob casinos, and forever change security in the cash cages.

Casino employees and other “insiders” commit gaming crimes; security team uses thousands of cameras and high-tech devices to thwart cheaters; millions lost in a “false shuffle” scam; Arizona State basketball star conspires to fix college basketball games.

Meet the most brazen cheaters in Vegas; two men create fantastically fake poker chips; a cheat and his cronies manipulate payouts by reprogramming slot machines; a thief on a motorcycle robs the Bellagio at gunpoint snatching $1.5 million in chips.
