Everyday, Las Vegas casinos attract hundreds of thousands of gamblers from around the world -- and more than their fair share of cheaters. The new series BREAKING VEGAS on The History Channel(R) looks at some of Las Vegas's most notorious high-stakes cheaters and the various tactics they've used to fleece casinos in the gambling capital of the world. BREAKING VEGAS premieres on Tuesday, March 1 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT with new episodes airing on Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Cheating in Las Vegas casinos has taken a wide variety of forms over the years. There have been inside jobs, the use of digital equipment to spy, the creation of gadgets to predict outcomes in roulette and blackjack -- plus: various legal -- but shady -- card-counting schemes involving entire teams of people. BREAKING VEGAS episodes combine recent and historical footage, dramatizations, factual background, and interviews with those involved, including some of the schemers themselves. Viewers get a behind-the-scenes look at the methods used and the casinos' constant efforts to counterbalance them.

THE ULTIMATE CHEAT (airing Tuesday, March 1st at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT) Imagine the ultimate cheating move of all time -- so outrageous, so audacious, so brilliantly simple that it takes the best of the casino's investigators to even come close to catching the genius behind it. This is the story of a daring, devious kid from New Jersey -- Richard Marcus -- and how he took the craft of past-posting to amazing new heights, vowing to cheat casinos out of $5 million and never be caught. As riveting as the bouncing ball on a roulette wheel itself, The Ultimate Cheat is the roller-coaster adventure of one brilliant cheat who managed to evade security at every move and ultimately discovered the move that could never be caught on tape.
