A month down the road but the Irish casino news is still full of the cyber attack on the Irish National lottery that caused the site to crash for a couple of hours meaning that many could not buy their ticket online. As it happened it caused no major damage and the largest jackpot in number of years was won by one individual who took home €13.8 million. The number of tickets sold is always related to the size of the jackpot on offer so a busy day was expected but it soon got busier that afternoon. Online casinos also offer various lotteries but they are unaffected by this sort of crash as the lottery players at an online casino do not actually buy a ticket but are instead given fixed odds against matching numbers. In other casino news it appears to be safer to play at an online casino as yet another land based casino is targeted by thieves this time in the South of France in a relatively small town known as Aix en Provence. According to Irish casino news reports there were some 700 people in the casino when 4 gunmen carrying automatic weapons fired shots before escaping with cash. The police went to great lengths to state that this was not a terrorist attack such as happened in Paris but merely a robbery. Fortunately nobody was seriously injured but 15 people were reported to have minor injuries resulting from the panic that ensued. Robberies at casinos are unfortunately a regular occurrence and weapons are often used so it is really no wonder that online casinos are growing in popularity when all the casino games you could want and probably more than you could want when it comes to casino slots are available in the comfort and safety of your own home.
