For the past two years, a group of scammers have been manipulating video poker machines at the Keywadin Casino Hotel & Resort in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Now, at least five members of the cheating team will pay heavy fines and serve prison time.
The Associated Press reports Joe Koster and two co-defendants have been ordered to pay $408,000 by a Marquette federal judge. Koster was considered the leader of the group and was given the longest sentence, two years.
The other five members face sentences ranging from one month to 18 months.
