An appeals court has upheld a Tennessee man's conviction for leading a craps cheating scam at Connecticut's two casinos with the help of insiders.

Forty-five-year-old Richard S. Taylor of Memphis is serving a 10-year sentence in Connecticut after being convicted in 2009 of orchestrating the 2007 scam, in which he recruited casino dealers to let him place late bets.

A Connecticut Appellate Court panel upheld his conviction in a decision released Friday.

Authorities say Taylor and his group were responsible for nearly $70,000 in losses at Connecticut's Foxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun.

Taylor dubbed himself "Mr. Casino," and was described in court records as a professional gambler who made his living through high-stakes gambling nationwide.

His public defender could not immediately be reached Sunday for comment.

70 000$ isn't very much for casino but it's great that these criminals got arrested and put to jail.
