Is that some special law in California?Quote: Romes
However if you "knowingly" take the pay then that's a crime.
This seems to be the law in most states I've asked attorneys. I honestly don't have the written law on it, but it's what I've been informed from law sources. I believe Bob N. even mentions it on GWAE. Though he was talking about table games and over pays. If you "know" it's an overpay and accept it then that's technically illegal, but if you just grab the chips and put them in your stack unknowingly then of course you didn't commit a crime as you expected the dealer did their job correctly.Quote: AxelWolf

Can you show me a specific law regarding this?
They had enough evidence of the men repeatedly doing it over and over to prove they knew exactly what they were doing. They couldn't claim ignorance because it was not a one time affair.Quote: AxelWolf
Why didn't they use this particular law to go after the guys who played the IGT double up bug? Not only did they know they were getting the incorrect payout, they went out of their way to make it happen.
Right, I think you are saying the same thing I was. So that's my question. Why didn't the authorities go after them for knowingly taking incorrect payouts, as well as hacking charges? Perhaps they should have had Bob advise them on how to prosecute the case(sarcasm).Quote: Romes
