He uses different software techniques and wins $50,000
Last June, a computer prodigy was arrested at the Casino de Charlevoix in Canada. The 23-year-old Australian boy is then accused of cheating at electronic roulette. On Monday, September 18, Mr. Justice Jean-François Emond of the Superior Court decided to release him on conditional release until his trial. Yujin Wu was finally able to leave the Quebec City detention centre. Let's get together and discuss this case right now.
A great casino fan
Our famous computer prodigy is what we might call: a professional player. Indeed, his casino sessions are his main means of subsistence. In order to achieve this, he has developed various techniques to assess the potential for gains through the use of computer terminals. And that's the whole problem.
A charge of cheating and fraud
On June 22nd, after pocketing more than $50,000 in electronic roulette, the Casino de Charlevoix officials went to question him. Yujin Wu then recognized that he was using computer equipment. It didn't take any more than that for the institution to accuse him of cheating and fraud with the police.
In good faith
The young Australian saw absolutely no harm in his way of doing things. He practiced the same methods in Cyprus and Melbourne, without encountering any problems. He is therefore particularly surprised by the way things went in Charlevoix.
The question now is whether the court will be inclined to favour his vision or that of the casino. This is what will be discovered from 16 October, the date of his trial.
