He said they can do this because they have their own proprietary software that was purchased fromn RTG. the casinos that are licensed from software providers who are third party can't adjust the metrics as they have no control over the operations. now that Bodog is dropped down so far in market share they might be rigging the casino to keep the doors open."
Hmm interesting point. Yes these corporate exec types are driven to meet their quarterly numbers (there's probably thousands of $ worth of bonuses on the line and their jobs), would not be shocked if they rigged things so they meet it. Usually its accounting shenanigans for most companies, but for a online gaming...
