CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A convicted Las Vegas slot cheat has been added to Nevada's Black Book of people barred from entering casinos.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board on Thursday added Larry Green to what's officially known as Nevada's Excluded Person List.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Green did not attend the Nevada Gaming Commission meeting.
The 63-year-old Green was convicted in Las Vegas of trying to rig slot machines with an electronic device. He has three prior convictions on gambling violations.
The Black Book contains the names of 32 men and one woman.
It was originally started in 1972 to keep mobsters off of Nevada gambling floors. State law makes it a felony for a listed person to enter a casino.
