Vegas Vid Poker machines exploited


In a case being brought, John Kane and Andre Nestor found video poker gaming machines that allowed them to get multiple jackpots. The glitch in the software that meant it was possible to change the stake and multiplier of payouts after first obtaining a low-value winning hand on video poker machines. A special button sequence on the Draw Poker machine manufactured by International Game Technology reportedly allowed access to previous winning hands and the payout of a jackpot.

This was originally reported in the The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports and then in wired and the Register.
