CORE Training: Electronic Game Protection
There’s a reason why the G2E show floor is dominated by slot manufacturers. Slot machines make U.S. casinos the most money. Despite this fact, there is no general slot protection seminars for casino operators. Given the rapid technological advancements of electronic games, this area of our gaming floor has come to represent a knowledge blind spot for surveillance. Until now. In this class a team of electronic game and cyber threat experts from Gaming Laboratories International/Bulletproof will help you understand how electronic games work so that you can better develop an in-house protection strategy for your biggest revenue generator. Topics covered include: the inner workings of a slot machine, how to monitor them digitally, threats and vulnerabilities, best protection practices, cheating and employee theft case studies and investigating losses.
