Capping a Bet

Home » Capping a Bet

“Capping a bet” in blackjack, and in other table games, is an illicit action where a player adds more chips to an existing bet after the outcome is known or seems highly favorable. This is done covertly, often when the dealer or other players are distracted. The intent is to increase potential winnings dishonestly.

Capping a bet is a form of cheating and is taken very seriously in casinos. It can lead to expulsion from the establishment and potentially legal consequences. Casinos employ various security measures, including surveillance cameras and trained dealers, to prevent and detect such fraudulent activities.
