There are a lot of gaming articles published every day, but no real place to look for them here unless the individual article is worth its own thread. So here's a place for the miscellaneous item. Comments welcome on any article.

Start with this one:

I don't see any mention of the property in Las Vegas. That's not owned by the same group that owned the Laughlin, Tahoe, and AC properties?

There was some legal brouhaha years ago between the companies ownership of the name if i recall

The end result was Tropicana LV could retain its name but not open any other casinos under that name in any other jurisdictions

Casino Database Hacked Through Smart Thermometer

This was a speaker's comment made at a recent business meeting. Its obvious the speaker is not fully familiar with the incident and it should be remembered that it took place some years ago.

A "network surveillance" program (ie, spyware) detected the unusual traffic (assisted by artificial intelligence) wherein a great many text files and spreadsheets were being sent to the new Aquarium's control module. So the program notified the Network Administrator of the casino that the aquarium was doing more than sampling water salinity and sending it to the specialized maintenance company.

Many networks are thought to be safe but any connection is vulnerable. One network was air-gapped, ie, no internet connection at all. Then someone upgraded a printer driver and the program never disconnected from the internet. Someone found it and got into the super secure system.

What are they talking about with the MontBleu in South Lake Tahoe UTAH not being included? That’s a new one to me.
