Well, its about time we heard about some progress on this.
Remember that there are hundreds, probably thousands of other cyber crimes being investigated, yet we dont hear about any of them because A) They arent associated with a high profile company of a very popular consumer product and B) Cyber crime is as "glamorous" as violent crime or sex-related crime so the news relegates it to the back page.
I do agree though that because this particular case has garnered such media play, it probably means that the FBI etal are highly motivated to find and make an example out of the guilty party to send a message to those that would seek to use their similar abilities to compromise the security of our country.
And Hump, dont forget that many of the offshore online casinos are run by the mob. You'd have to be crazy to try and fuck with that. You'd be beggin for a private cell with bubbah when those guys got to you.
