UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Casinos in the Northeastern U.S. increasingly are tapping a shared intelligence network to stay ahead of cheaters.

A bettor was arrested last week at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun casino after a surveillance worker recognized him from a security bulletin issued by authorities in Louisiana.

Mohegan Sun officials say the arrest of the man who was allegedly marking cards with invisible ink represents a culmination of cooperation that began taking off a decade ago.

Casinos from the U.S. to Australia use their own intelligence network to warn each other about cheaters. As table games spread across the Northeast, resorts are using it more than ever to stop thieves as well as card counters who can hit multiple casinos in the span of a few days.
