"Scientific Games Corp (SGMS.O), which makes tickets and software for lotteries, said it would acquire slot machine maker WMS Industries Inc (WMS.N) for about $1.42 billion to beef up its exposure to the booming casino gaming industry."

A few months ago I told my cousin, who is heavily invested in stocks, that he should check out WMS Gaming, because as a slot player I saw how popular and innovative their games were and thought it might be a decent investment for him. He looked at it and decided against buying it. He's probably kicking himself right about now.
