DETROIT (AP) - The ball landed on 14 for a big winning bet. But the court case? Snake eyes.

The Michigan appeals court has affirmed the convictions of a brother and sister who were accused of cheating at roulette at the Motor City Casino in Detroit.

James Countryman was working as a dealer in 2012 when his sister, India Countryman, suddenly won $4,700. But investigators said surveillance video shows her bet was placed after the ball landed on red 14.

The siblings denied any wrongdoing.

In a 3-0 decision Friday, the appeals court rejected challenges to the cheating conviction. Brother and sister are on probation for three years.
