Ethics aside, one of the interesting takeaways from the horse racing story is that you're better off attacking parimutuel games. All things being equal you want to beat lotteries, poker tournaments and lit exchanges rather than blackjack, bookies and internalizing dark pools. In the latter, you're taking money from the house, and their incentive is to shut you down and cut you off.

Even if you have a great system, you end up spending most of your effort fighting the house, avoiding detection and standing up sock puppets. If you're hitting a parimutuel system, you're only ripping off the other players. In all likelihood, the house will try to do everything they can to help you, since you're generating volume.

That being said, this is one of my favorite "Beat the Dealer" stories. Some Russians bought the source code powering a large percentage of American slot machines, and found an exploit in the RNG. I have a feeling that as software continues to eat the world, gambling included, that we'll see a lot more cases like this.

Good questions outrank easy answers. -Paul Samuelson

" always found it very very overly sweet and slightly metallic."

I had horse sushi in Japan. Tasted sorta like horse sweat in the same way cow tastes like cow sweat. Recommend.

have to ask - when/where/why did you taste horse or cow sweat for comparison?
