I've always been fascinated by the algorithms that go into those programs. It's funny that the most basic and common of things is what the casinos always get you on...not leaving when you're up.

Thanks for sharing...I love gambling and found it interesting.

Yeah, I'm not a gambler at all... unless you count an occasional lotto ticket as gambling :p I found the entire story fascinating for many reasons...

The fact that this glitch had evaded software experts and gaming experts for 7 years, but 2 degenerate gamblers found it...

The fact that those 2 were ever friends in the first place (I guess addiction breeds familiarity)...

And the whole legal situation related to this incident. I wish there was more details about entire legal side... If all charges were dropped and thus, no crime was committed, how can the casinos legally confiscate the winnings, and did they? That info seems vague in the story. I wonder if there was a fear that these two could possibly win the case and perhaps set a legal precedent that the casinos did not want to happen?

When they figured this out, why be so obvious about it? Damn, just take a couple of jackpots from different casinos every couple of days. Stupid greedy bastards!

I thought the same thing, then I realized... the only reason they figured this out is because they are degenerate gamblers. That means they couldn't stop gambling even when they were losing... Now they have a guaranteed way to win... Fughedaboutit!!

Its not so much the lure of money as much as it is human nature. Look at blackjack, a game where you can easily win money...if you can stay disciplined.

only time you go into a casino is to play games where the only thing you are playing against is a person.

IE: Poker.

once in a while I drop into the local casino with 10 bucks and play the 1.5 million dollar (at thsi time) progressive slots jackpot. we're talking. . . .once every 3 or 4 weeks.

The house only wins if you play for a LONG time. Over time you will always come out bad. Typically slot machines only pay out after they have collected a set amount. Example: it collects $10,000 before it pays out a $4,000 jackpot.

the only way to have fair odds is the roulette table and bet on a color.

as for card games, you may come out a head in black jack or texas holdem if you play logically for a long long time. Card games are best played in the long run and being conservative with your bets.

Once upon a time I played Blackjack against a one-deck shoe in a cheapskate casino that didn't give me free booze. I started out with casino script too. Damn did I make out. Just too easy. Haven't played in one since, though they did open one in my town I've been meaning to check out, just to say I did.
