Ernest L. Stevens Jr., Chairman of the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA), with a delegation of four have visited the Gauselmann group in Germany.

The NIGA members started off their visit in Eastern Westphalia. They visited the Gauselmann Group’s production plant in Lübbecke, the company’s training centre at Schloss Benkhausen in Espelkamp and the German Coin-Op Museum. They experienced German casino flair in the MERKUR Casino arcades in Espelkamp, as well as at the Bad Oeynhausen casino.

They made discussions with various company representatives, especially Paul Gauselmann (founder of Gauselmann group), who invited Ernest L. Stevens along with Jürgen Stühmeyer (Merkur Management Board member) and Athanasios Isaakidis (Chief Executive, International) to a personal meeting.

“It is a great honour for us to welcome Ernest Stevens and his delegation to the Gauselmann Group’s company headquarters. Mr Stevens has been passionately campaigning for the concerns of the Indian gaming industry in the United States for decades. Thanks to his skill, gaming revenues have been more than tripled in the past two decades. This is a remarkable achievement and a great win for the affiliated Indian tribes, that have been able to use the generated revenues to implement many social projects such as schools, kindergartens and hospitals,” Paul Gauselmann said.

“In addition, I see in Mr Stevens many parallels with my own many years of association work in the German amusement and vending machine industry and am therefore delighted to be able to get to know him better personally,” he added.

“We are delighted to have received the invitation to get to know the East-Westphalian Gauselmann Group personally and about the wonderful hospitality shown to us during our stay. It was really fascinating to see how the high-quality products of the games makers in Germany are manufactured and, like our casinos in the United States, how they also secure local jobs,” Ernest L. Stevens said.

A group of Chinese hackers is targeting and hacking online gambling and betting websites since 2019. As per the reports by cyber-security firms Talent-Jump and Trend Micro, hacks have been officially confirmed at gambling companies in Southeast Asia, while unconfirmed rumours of hacks have also come from Europe and the Middle East.

Talent-Jump and Trend Micro say hackers appear to have stolen company databases and source code, but not money, suggesting the attacks were espionage-focused, rather than cybercrime motivated. They said the attacks had been carried out by a group called DRBControl.

Attacks start with a spear-phishing link sent to targets. Employees who fall for the emails and open the documents they received are infected with backdoor trojans.

These backdoor trojans are somewhat different from other backdoors because they heavily rely on the Dropbox file hosting and file sharing service, which they use as a command-and-control service and as a storage medium for second-stage payloads and stolen data.

The Chinese hackers use backdoors to download other hacking tools and malware that they use to move laterally through a company’s network until they find databases and source code repositories from where they can steal data.
