LONDON, England -- Two computer experts cheated casinos by creating fake betting slips, Peterborough Today reported.
Using insider knowledge the two hacked into software that controlled remote betting machines on live roulette wheels, the report said.
The machines would print out winning betting slips regardless of the results on the wheel, Peterborough Today said.
The men, who stole close to $70,000, were given 12 month jail sentences suspended for two years and ordered to pay back $30,000 each, Peterborough Today reported.
