TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say 11 people, including a casino dealer, have been accused of cheating at a casino in Toledo.

The charges announced Wednesday are the first since the Hollywood Casino in Toledo opened in late May.

Among those charged are a dealer who authorities say was making fraudulent wagers for a man at a craps table where she was working.

Authorities also alleged six people took part in an organized roulette scam during the casino’s first few days of operation. Those six are from New York and New Jersey and face a total of 29 felony counts.

Toledo’s casino was the second to open in Ohio this year.

Prosecutors also have accused seven other people of trying to cheat at the new Horseshoe casino in Cleveland.
