Does "fè koken" only apply to when you're playing a game?

Non, m pa panse sa.
Ou kapab pete koken nan tout sa w'ap fè.

Fè koken (oubyen Pete koken) is to cheat, or refuse to follow the rules of a game

Òganizasyon an te pwomèt yo t'ap bay chak moun ki mennen dis kliyan senkant dola.  Men lè yo wè gen twòp moun ki mennen kliyan, yo reyalize y'ap blije peye anpil lajan.  Donk you pete koken e yo di yo pa't janm pwomèt ankenn lajan.
The organization had promised $50 to everyone who brings ten clients.  But when they saw that too many people brought clients, they realized that they will have to pay a large sum.  So they cheated and said that they never promised any money.
