Archie Karas, Renowned Gambler, Avoids Jail, is Sentenced to Probation

EL CAJON, CA — A well-known professional gambler accused of cheating at cards at a San Diego-area casino has been sentenced to probation.

Archie Karas won more than $8,000 in July 2013 by marking blackjack cards at the Barona Casino. The 64-year-old was arrested at his Las Vegas home two months later.

U-T San Diego reports (http://bit.ly/1oNUSyk) Karas pleaded guilty in October to one count of felony burglary, meaning he entered the casino intending to commit a crime. In this case, the crime was winning by fraudulent means.

At his sentencing Wednesday, Karas was informed that after a year on probation he can ask the court to reduce his felony conviction to a misdemeanor.

Karas is a high-stakes gambler known for a winning streak from 1992 to 1995 that earned him $40 million at Las Vegas tables before he gambled it away.
