Two EOS Gambling Platforms Fall Prey to $260,000 Hack

Smart contracts on two EOS gambling platforms have been hacked in the last four days to the tune of more than a quarter of a million dollars, with another platform paying out $600,000 to one user in an unusual-looking jackpot which EOSBet insists was simply luck.

The first and more minor hack occurred on Sept. 9 when a DEOSGames user named runningsnail went on what appeared to be quite the winning streak, with $1,000 payments made dozens of times. The user would deposit 10 EOS and then win the jackpot 30 seconds later, like clockwork, a suspiciously-automated process which can be seen here in the user’s eosflare account overview.

DEOSGames confirmed that its smart contract had been hacked, spinning the malicious exploit as “a good stress test” in a short statement released on social media.
