Are you Feeling Lucky? Casino Gaming, Java, and IoT
Presenter: Azul Director of Product Management Matt Schuetze
Java is a great system for creating casino games. Interfacing them with physical hardware takes PC games you write yourself a lot closer to their Vegas or Macau counterparts. This session explores cryptographically strong random number generators. It also shows use of elements of IoT to provide physical hardware to implement random chance, shows a few cool sources of entropy, and outlines the direct coupling with Java’s security providers. Still think this is just a game? Casinos grossed US$317 billion in 2015 alone. Gaming is big money, too.
