'Invisible Ink' Poker Cheat Banned From Connecticut Casinos

55-Year-Old New Jersey Man Pleaded Guilty, Gets Time Served


The state of Connecticut has decided to ban a known poker cheat who marked cards with invisible ink, according to multiple media reports.

Bruce Koloshi, of New Jersey, pleaded guilty and was sentenced this week to time served. He had spent 10 months in prison since his arrest last September at Mohegan Sun.

The invisible ink was visible with special contact lenses, as well as by casino security cameras when his play was viewed in black and white.

The 55-year-old was arrested at the poker table with a piece of fabric with the ink on it in his pocket, according to The Day of New London. Koloshi has cheating convictions in Nevada, Iowa and Illinois and is facing charges in Louisiana, the report added.
