Rigged slot machines discovered in Romania

Published

on

A total of 313 searches have been carried out by Romanian Special Police Forces, with the purpose of putting an end to a 3-year period of fraud, in which some individuals have managed to “hack” slots machines and eventually make them “win less”. We are talking about Casino-Club owners and workers.

The police has managed to conduct 313 searches in 29 cities, including the capital, in an effort to bring in those responsible for hacking the slot machines, adding them a so-called “BREAK”, which minimized the chances of the slot machine to give away winnings.

15060347_1256210674430952_1620640062_oThus, those responsible, have managed to re-soft the slot machine’s EEPROM memory, by modifying the technical parameters; in other cases they modified the mechanical exit-control and some were even changing the “winning-rate” of the machine by adding so-called “breaks” with the purpose of slowing down the accumulation of the percentage needed, to generate big winnings like “Jackpot”. This kind of activities, sources say, have started in 2013 and continued until the day the police came. 8 people have been arrested and other 14 people have received judicial review.

The police has also confiscated 492.136 RON, 101.695 Euro, 500 USD, 2.180 Cannadian Dollars, 120 British Pounds, 596.000 Hungarian Forints, 320 Croatian Kuna, a 1kg Gold Bar, a 50-gram Silver Bar, 75 gold coins, 21 silver coins, 5 golden badges and 77 unlicensed slot machines. Also, they have discovered 15 more locations, that were running without a proper license.

More information will follow as the police will gather more evidence.

SlotJava Awards has nominated slot games and slot suppliers available on SlotJava.it and SlotJava.es websites and will now pick from the shortlisted entries competing across five key categories. The company will award those that have driven the strongest consumer product, experiences, and engagement based on careful study of verifiable data.

Infinileads SL product director Niklas Lundström has confirmed the company’s lofty ambitions for the coming year and evolution of the existing format, noting that “even though the five categories presented here are the most significant, there are still a lot of different prizes which all carry their own value.”

There have been many worthwhile entries, Lundström noted, but the company’s team “managed to narrow it down to some solid winners and are all looking forward in presenting them in our own unique way.”

Eric Stööp, co-founder of Infinileads SL, explained the criteria that the company relied on to arrive at fair and verifiable decisions through the use of datasets that cover millions of user generated transactions. He specifically added: “We are excited about our first SlotJava Awards and I think it will be a great way to end the year on a positive note with some fun and interesting slot data.

Another Year, Another Good Year for the Casino Business

Another Year, Another Good Year for the Casino Business

The year 2020 has been challenging to virtually all business sectors because of the novel coronavirus outbreak. Europe’s gaming industry has not been spared, with many land-based casinos closing their doors to clients to control COVID-19’s spread. Technological advancements have led to introducing new gaming experiences as providers try to stay afloat in the highly competitive industry. Besides, no one would like to experience the same gaming experience over and over again.

A lot has changed in the online gaming sector since the introduction of 2D computer graphics. Today, new digital solutions have enabled developers to offer 3D graphics during game development to appeal to gamers. When it comes to trends in the gaming industry, 2021 seems to be promising, considering the recent technological changes and the impact of the COVID-19 on the gambling market.

Online [Mobile] Gambling

Players prefer playing different games to others. While some may consider video games fun, casino gamblers play for entertainment and win real money. Before the coming of the internet, people would play card and dice games then wager a specific amount. However, online gambling has provided a wide range of games to people worldwide, including the most popular European gambling destinations.

Because of the stay-at-home orders that most EU nations put in place, most gambling enthusiasts turned to online casinos and bookmakers to continue enjoying betting. Mobile gaming is expected to hit full throttle in 2021 because of its rise during the pandemic. And new mobile-first casino platforms are growing more popular than ever. Looking at 2020 we find several new European mobile casinos such as Winny.com and Race that opened up the gates. Looking forward in to 2021 estimates tells us this trend will continue.

Even as we experience the second wave of the health crisis, players across Europe have adjusted to the technological innovations taking place in the gaming world. Now seems the best time to invest in the EU gaming sector because it is expected to continue growing even in 2021. Therefore, gamers can expect exciting and features, trends, and other online gambling innovations next year.

Virtual Reality Casinos

Virtual reality is an innovative technology that the online gaming industry has utilized quite well. The technology uses a head-mounted display that gives gamers a chance to taste a more vivid and progressive gaming experience. This technology also offers game developers and online casinos unlimited options and tools to render the best VR games. Many bigwig companies in the sector are already on the verge of creating the best systems that will support the technology, and 2021 offers the best buffer time for the tech to reach the mainstream. Using VR, players will have to bet on the same level as other players and use the suitable headware. They’ll be able to see each other as in the real world. They’ll be able to hear each other’s response, which will require players to be more strategic in their gameplay.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning

Artificial intelligence is one of the tech advancements that have drastically shaped the online gambling industry in 2020 and is expected to hit full throttle in the coming years. Online gaming providers can now leverage AI to deliver a personalized gaming experience. That said, players will only get game suggestions based on what they like. That saves players time because they need not waste time searching for what they’d like to play.

Furthermore, AI and machine learning also help online casinos to enhance their consumer support. For instance, most are now using chatbots to answer consumer queries.
