Hand mucking also means a sleight of hand so it cannot be difficult for professional blackjack cheaters, for instance.

How is it work?

Long time ago when casino security had nothing to do with numerous cases of scam provided by smart alecks the hand mucking was the most popular method to cheat. Everything a dishonest player had to do was to remove a certain card carefully from the game table. After this discreet movement the card is hidden in player's sleeve or pocket, but more frequently under the table (using fastening devices).

As the result, that card could be inserted in the game at any favourable for the player moment. Thus, the cheater always had an advantage over other players. For instance, speaking of online blackjack, a cheater could easily remove and hide an Ace by means of hand mucking. So when the Ace was necessary for Blackjack the card magically appeared in his hands.
