Ipsotek's cheat technology features in New Scientist magazine

Ipsotek’s innovative technology being tested in the Grosvenor Casinos across the UK to detect cheats at roulette tables has featured in an article for the New Scientist magazine.

The software is installed on the casino’s existing CCTV cameras and is designed to detect “late bets” and “top-hatting”. The software analyses the speed of the ball and when last bets are called, it then detects any hands entering the betting area of the table and leaving a chip.

“Some people cheat at roulette by placing their chips on the table after the croupier has already called “last bets”. Doing so gives a player a real advantage, because as the ball slows it becomes easier to predict which quarter of the wheel it will land in” said Boghos Boghossian, CTO of Ipsotek.

The decision to install this software will be made by the group in January.
