A 19-year-old Bremerton man was arrested and charged with cheating in the first degree Jan. 17 after officers with the Suquamish Police Department were reportedly provided security footage from the Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort which allegedly shows the individual, a blackjack dealer, tipping players off to upcoming cards.

According to a statement of probable cause, Steven Singer appears in surveillance video looking at cards prior to dealing them and then indicating to players whether they should stay or hit in order to win the hand. The incidents listed in the statement of probable cause were only a few of the numerous incidents reported to police.

On one occasion, the report reads, Singer examined the cards to be dealt to a player and told her to double down. On another occasion a player had indicated that she wished to split her cards to make two separate hands. Singer then appears to indicate to the player that she should hit, which she does, resulting in the player getting blackjack.

Reports provided to police from tribal gaming officials suggest that Singer had been working with the same group of people.
