Convicted slot cheat becomes Black Book member


A convicted slot machine cheat became the first new member of Nevada’s Excluded Person List, commonly referred to as the Black Book, in almost four years.

The Nevada Gaming Commission Thursday unanimously placed Roderick William Dee II on to the list, which makes it a felony for that person to enter a Nevada casino. The list now has 34 names.

Dee, 58, who lives in Las Vegas, has at least four felony convictions for attempting to use different devices to rig jackpots or change payouts on a slot machine. Three of the convictions are in Las Vegas and one was from Kansas City, Mo.

Deputy Attorney General Ed Magaw told the commission there are outstanding warrants for Dee’s arrest in California and Indiana for attempted slot machine cheating activities.

Missouri gaming regulators also placed Dee on that state’s excluded persons list.

Dee did not appear to contest his placement in the list. The Gaming Control Board nominated Dee for the Black Book in May.

Earlier this month, the control board nominated Larry Keith Green for the Black Book.

Green, 63, has three prior convictions in Nevada and one in Missouri on gaming violations. Green is currently on a five-year probation placed on him in April 2012 and ordered by the judge not to appear in casinos.
