Dottys Gaming and Spirits suffers a data breach

Dotty’s is a chain owned by Craig Estey in Nevada that has 175 locations in the state of Nevada, Oregon, and Minnesota.

Cheap American food like fries, corn dogs, pizza, and other snacks are offered to visitors. But to everyone’s surprise, a cyberattack at Dotty’s leaves 300,000 guests worried about their personal information.

And even those who already gambled at land-based casinos were forced to find an alternative since most facilities closed.

Gambling addictions spike amid the pandemic crisis

For the first time in history, the entire globe shared a comparable struggle - the pandemic lockdown. The deaths from COVID are certainly the main subject of this painful period, but even those who weren’t touched by the virus got a neat old slap in many other ways.

This is an undeniable fact, as alcohol sales went up by 60% in the past year, and drug-related crimes began taking over regions all around the earth.

Twitch poorly combats illegal gambling | New restrictions

The ongoing issue of illegal gambling streams on Twitch has seen little to no attention from the site creators until earlier this August.
