How could you get in trouble for something findable via Google? Google isn't even responsible for stuff findable on Google.

There's no longer anything at that link. I hope you downloaded lots of PAR sheets before they fixed the open door, and I hope you'll share them.

that was fast!

and this is an edit... im not sure i want to mess with someone who can contact google that fast and have the results removed.

these documents are for sure confidential but the thing was that they didnt really contain identifying information as to which slots they went to. the best parts were the notes they had about the specific features and how they worked on which in itself to anyone probably wouldnt matter because its like reading pseudo code which reads like "if this then that" kind of thing.

and im sorry but checking if the files are still accessible is not working either. everything has been blocked this was a serious hole that i dont want to mess with any more.

They probably already are preparing heat and are creating a map to your location.

I doubt they contacted Google. IGT probably just fixed the problem on its end (directory not protected) and Google's bot picked it up when it next crawled the site.

I'll note that I've been pretty brazen about republishing copyrighted information and other things that people worry could get someone in legal trouble, but I've never had any. I know a fair bit about copyright law and lots of things just simply aren't actionable. I don't want to belittle your apprehension, but I quite honestly think you have nothing to worry about. If you'd hacked into their site that would be one thing, but simply downloading something that *they made available to the world* is not a crime.

I took a look. Most, if not all of them didn't have a name attached to the game or anything I could see that would allow you to match them up. Obviously it would be nice to get an over all look at what percentages they offer.

I'm not sure if I was reading one of the par sheets correctly. It lead me to believe that there was a confidence of 95% that within 1k spins you wouldn't go above 96%. I was thinking to myself, WOW, that's not very many spins to know theres a 95% chance you will be a 4% loser.

Wouldn’t that mean the game in question is jackpot or large hit heavy, which certainly seems feasible in today’s slot world. Most games are very low payback on the base game and heavy on the rare larger hit. I know 1k spins isn’t a large sampling by any means, but the number doesn’t seem out of line.
