Gambling machines serve as the principal means by which illegal games are conducted. This paper presents a method for retrieving information from seized gaming machines along with an analysis of the interpreted information to prove that the gaming machine was used illegally. The process is illustrated using a machine seized from a suspected illegal gambling operation. A detailed gambling machine forensic procedure provides important assistance to forensic investigators (e.g., police or private investigators) in gathering evidence relevant to illegal gambling.
