The conspiracy was disclosed when the error was detected at the computer program designed to provide winnings at digital casino games. There were striking inaccuracies in the winnings and the money paid out.

The Cherokee Tribal Gaming Commission states that this is the only case when the casino employee was involved in the conspiracy and helped players to steal money, and there is nothing the players and casino supervisors may fear of.

The Cherokee Indian Casino features digital blackjack and baccarat which means that all gaming operations are made electronically. Thus traditional cheating is impossible at the casino and the only way to outsmart the system is to disable the computer program used at the gambling machines. Cheating ring managed to follow this plan and was paid for the winnings that didn't happen at all. Money stolen in this way was divided between the players and dealer.
