Ida Summers, the queen of Black Jack


When we talk about big scammers who broke the casino bank, we tend to think only of men. 
In this series of articles dedicated to the subject, 
today I want to introduce you to Ida Summers . She is a true professional scammer who did not need anyone's help to get huge amounts of money.

She was known as Vegas Vixen and she managed to make thousands of dollars daily . That's how it was from the 1960s to the early 1970s. Practically all the casinos in Las Vegas were ripped off each other. But not huge amounts at a time but a few thousand every night at each casino. In this way it could go unnoticed.

The charms of Isa Summers and Black Jack

One of her great assets was her beauty, she knew it and she exploited it to the fullest. Not only did he have that trump card in his favor, he had great power of conviction and seduction towards male dealers. Although she had tried her luck at poker, Ida Summers always chose Black Jack for her scams .

What he did to get 21 at Black Jack was one of the oldest tricks in pokerTake the cards out of the sleeve , but not just any card. Casinos reportedly have a specific card maker that makes cards exclusively for them. She managed to get a large number of cards taking advantage of the carelessness of the croupiers.

Taking advantage of the distractions of some croupiers while seducing them with looks or smiles, he kept letters to himself. Another day she would use them to complete 21 when it suited her. Remember that in those years, cameras did not exist in casinos and it was easier to scam.

Later he would use other tricks to scam the bank and although he was successful, not as much as the typical card up his sleeve. The FBI eventually arrested her along with casino officials, but the details of how they proved her cheating are unclear.

They were supposedly watching her for a long time, but she was very cautious. He would never repeat casino on the same night and the FBI couldn't have a surveillance team in every casino in Las Vegas. Rumors suggest that it was other scammers who noticed her and denounced her in order to remove herself from competition.
