Last month we brought you news of a court case involving a Devon man accused of stealing chips from Zynga Poker worth an alleged $12m.
29-year-old Ashley Mitchell from Devon appeared at Exeter Crown Court and admitted five counts of hacking as well as asking for a further 41 offences to be taken into consideration.According to the ThisIsDevon news portal, sentencing in the case has been delayed after Mitchell's solicitor, Ben Darby, told the court he had been contacted by a member of the public claiming to be a former staff member of the company and a black market trader with 'pertinent information'. Darby told the court, "He says he has detailed knowledge on the value of these chips and wishes to give evidence." Court recorder Kevin de Haan agreed to adjourn the case until 14 March so a statement from the new witness can be taken. De Haan said, "It is in everyone's interest that I place a proper value on these chips and what they can achieve on the market." Mitchell hacked into Zynga's website, transferred 400 billion gaming chips, then sold them on the black market for an alleged £53,000 profit.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
