Nevada Removes Gambler From Casino 'Black Book'

Roderick William Dee II Died Late Last Year


Roderick William Dee II, who was added to Nevada’s infamous “Black Book” last year, was removed last week by gaming regulars. He died on Dec. 30.

Dee was known for cheating at slot machines.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, Dee had four felony convictions for slot machine incidents, three in Nevada and one in Missouri. Two incidents occurred in Nevada casinos and the third occurred in a Las Vegas convenience store. He used a device that would trick a slot machine into producing a jackpot or adding credits. He reportedly received tens of thousands of dollars, illegally.

On April 17, the Nevada Gaming Commission granted the Gaming Control Board’s motion to remove Dee from the list of excluded persons, according to a state document made public.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, death is the only way to get off the list.

According to his obituary from the Review-Journal, Dee died in hospice care on Dec. 30 at age 56, after a four-year bout with cancer. He was a former dealer at the Dunes and Stardust.

Nevada’s Black Book was established in 1972. Dee was the 34th to join the list.
