The automatic slot machines and their coin collectors were at risk sometimes to cheat devices and some other scams. To spin a coin with a plastic wire of short length involves a historical example of this. The machine accepts the size and weight and grants the credits. However, the coin causes to exit through the rejected channel into the tray of payout due to the creation of spin by means of plastic wire. As per the developments in the latest slot machines this particular type of scam has became out dated.
EPROM chips are there that controls and powers the modern slot machines for gambling. In most of the casinos, the bill acceptors are mostly favored than the coin acceptors. Such types of machines as well as their bill acceptors are manufactured and designed with hi-tech measures to defend counterfeiting and cheating and are very hard for defrauding as well. The mechanized slot machines of earlier times were defrauded sometimes by means of using the devices for cheating, such as Tommy Glenn Carmichael, a notorious slot cheater, used ‘monkey paw’ or ‘slider’. However, the manipulation of EPROM involves the most recent attempt to defraud the slot machines, such as the disruption of it from functioning properly by directing the microwaves towards it. The manipulation of defrauding software in the slot machines to deceive the casino operators has been introduced by a casino insider, Ronald Dale Harris.

In one casino in Vegas, I personally witnessed a winning roulette player's drinks spiked with something by a pit boss and waitress. He got really messed up, falling down and unable to function in a short time, and was promptly escorted out.
