National News // May 9, 2019

A number of people have been arrested in Crans-Montana suspected of hacking the fruit machines in the casino so they pay out.

The high-tech attack was last year – but Valais cantonal prosecutors have now formally launched legal proceedings. Four suspects remain in custody.

There are no details on how exactly the gang managed to hack the machines – to prevent copycat attempts.

TV news reports say the gang is part of an international operation and probably had inside help.

It’s likely to be several more months before the suspects face trial.
