CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A convicted Las Vegas slot cheat has been nominated for inclusion in Nevada's Black Book of people barred from entering casinos.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board on Thursday nominated Larry Green for what's officially known as Nevada's Excluded Person List.
The Las Vegas Sun reports (http://bit.ly/18S5FOS ) the Nevada Gaming Commission will take final action on whether to place him in the Black Book.
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 in Nevada and one in Missouri.
His partner, Roderick Dee II, was nominated for the Black Book in May by the Gaming Control Board.
The Black Book contains the names of 32 men and one woman.
It was originally started in 1972 to keep mobsters out of Nevada's casinos, but in recent years it has been used to bar cheaters from entering casinos.
