Eliot Jacobson, owner of online casino auditing company Certified Fair Gambling, has kicked off 2014 with the sale of the company to a fellow gambling/math whiz.
As for the reasoning behind the sale, Jacobson said he is currently focused on game protection in a land based environment and keeping up with his blog APHeat.net.
"I believe that CFG has retained its respected position while in my care, but it also has a lot of unrealized growth potential," Jacobson said in a statement. "It is time to pass CFG on to someone with the skills, raw intelligence and drive to take CFG to the next level. I conducted a long search for a suitable replacement to lead CFG. I am fortunate to have found an individual who exceeds every hope I had for a successor."
He refers to Charles Mousseau.
"I have known Charles since we met as blackjack card counters in Las Vegas in June of 2002. In 2008, Charles gave up a successful career in Computer Science to become an independent consultant specializing in casino game mathematics.
"At present, Charles is the owner/operator of the consulting business Total Gaming Science. Charles has hands-on experience with the mathematical foundations of just about every casino game. He has exceptionally strong knowledge of statistical auditing.
“His broad background in computer programming, advantage play and gaming mathematics allow Charles to look at the nuts and bolts of the software that online casinos use. In short, I doubt there is a person better qualified than Charles Mousseau to take over CFG," Jacobson said.
Information regarding the sale price was not released.
