Randomize (Forward Collection), by Andy Weir (author), Janina Gavankar

Brilliance Audio, September 2019

At a point in the not terribly distant future, the head of IT at Babylon Casino in Las Vegas alerts the head of the casino to a major security risk: The arrival of quantum computing means their games of chance, in particular keno, are not safe. Random number generators are not truly random, and quantum computers are fast enough to crack them.

There's only one way to safely reopen their keno game. They buy a quantum computer of their own, and hire the right IT whiz to set up what they need.

Babylon Casino is safe now. Except that someone on the inside, isn't on their side.

It's a clever, fun, really enjoyable short story. Recommended.

I bought this audiobook.
