Here's a Popular Science article from 1933 on tools that gamblers used to cheat. They did some pretty cool tricks with very limited technology.

The best way to cheat, though, is to simply refuse to pay the money. After winning $102,000, it turns out that it was all a big misunderstanding! Once an investigation was begun, the casino decided that they would give the guy the money anyway, even though it was all just a mistake. Poor casinos! Can't they catch a break?

Although, honestly, anyone who enjoys video gambling really isn't owed much. "You put in money, and the computer will tell you if you get some money in return. Of course it's fair! How could you even ask that? Come on, buddy, aren't we friends?"
