Vegas Bingo Suicide
By Earl
Jeff Simpson of the Las Vegas Gaming Wire reports that a Reno software engineer, as yet unidentified by the Nevada Gaming Control Board, committed suicide last weekend after Board agents discovered he’d installed a cheating mechanism in the electronic system that runs bingo machines in a casino here.

Regulators quickly shut down the electronic card minder systems, which the engineer may have compromised, in another 15 area bingo parlors. However, they quickly returned the machines to operation once the method of the scam was understood.

The engineer, an employee of Game Tech, a Reno company that supplies bingo card minder systems, installed a gaffe -- a corruption -- into the software which allowed him, and presumably others, to play bingo without paying for the cards. The engineer used false cards made of paper and “ink-based daubers.”
