A man who was caught cheating at a poker game in a casino has been jailed for 12 months, Kibris Postasi reported.
Vidmantas Batakis, who registered himself under a false name at the Concorde Hotel Casino in Bafra was caught marking playing cards after he won a total of 8,789 Euros.
The police said that Vidmantas Batakis, who went to a casino operating in Nicosia on April 21, 2022, showed a false German ID card issued in the name of Martin Berg to the employee at the entrance.
