The world of casino gambling is packed with cheaters and casinos have created a blacklist for known slot machine cheaters all over Vegas. This list is commonly known as the Black Book of Nevada. One person who should have been included in that book a long time ago, next to John Vaccaro and William Land is Timothy Childs.
His 'area of expertise' was slot machine cheating. The famous slot machine cheater was born as Timothy John Childs but he used many, many aliases and some known ones are Timothy Brophy, Timothy Singleton and James Cooper. The slots cheater can be identified by a tattoo on his right shoulder.
He avoided that famous entrance in the Black Book until 1991 when he finally graced the pages of the list but that after he already had an impressive criminal record. He had 45 arrests from which some of them came from gaming (7 for slot machine cheating) and others were grand larceny charges.
The slots cheater is a veteran and it seems that he is proud of his profession as once when he applied for a loan, when asked on the application for occupation he actually wrote down slot cheat. However, today, the slots cheater can no longer enter any of the casinos in Nevada.
