hahahaha - yeah totally agree with above post, it seems someone forgot to add at least one 0...only way i see this possible is that this gang was playing in other casinos as well, milking in small amounts @many places, that would add up to a much bigger payday, still no luck...better move to politics, at least u can steal publicly there

lol i read this article,thinking "Is it worth it?" 10k over 2 yrs 5 man team? they probably would have made more begging on the streets. although it just goes to show that nothing is safe when it comes to computers and people will find ways of cheating them all if they can

$10.000 at that one casino mentioned in this article. There are other casinos in the US of A. One can only asume, that they had hit other casinos too. Cause $10k is indeed a bit low for two years.

Considering the number of people that were involved, the time they spent and also the sum they earned is really, really low...

Unfortunately for this sum they will go to jail, i really think that they hoped to earn a lot more at beginning of the scam.

Damn, I surprised it actually took so long to detect or find this scam out. I just saying every casino I've been in has cameras all over the place from in the ceiling to the floors and in areas you just don't pay attention to. It also seem's that $10,000 is a small amount of cash to have been taken over a period of two (2) years.

Heh - I'm a bit neurotic when it comes to being correct with these kinds of statements.. just to be clear, a 'light wand' is a devices that screws with the sensors on the coin dispensers, causing the machine to payout far more than the actual win.. It has something to do with electronics, nothing to do with computers however.

They dont seem to have got much over such a long time. Was it worth the risk i wonder. Love to hear these stories like something out of a Hollywood film.Some clever people about who thinks these things up
