Casino dealer charged over tips to customers

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) - An Ohio man who was a dealer at a western Pennsylvania casino has been charged with giving gamblers tips on how to win at the roulette table.

The Washington Observer-Reporter (http://bit.ly/1mgA2Vn ) reports that state police filed charges against 56-year-old Robert M. Valle of Wintersville, accusing him of telling a confidential informant to place wagers on certain numbers at the Meadows Casino to increase the odds of winning.

Valle allegedly told the informant he helped other patrons win money at the casino. He's charged with misdemeanor counts of violating gaming acts by tricking or defrauding the table and conspiracy.

Valle was sent a summons. No attorney was listed on court papers, and he couldn't be located for comment.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 15.
