Not the best phrase to use, but my idea revolves around a person who can read computer programme. He goes to Vegas for a sales convention, and while killing time goes on a Video Blackjack machine. From the minute he puts the coin into the slot, he senses what the cards are going to be and wins a lot of money. As the story develops, Matthew, the character, can tell if a computer device has a virus on it, and is able to understand if a device has a software problem. I don't want to go down the shadowy, conspiratorial route, but in a way he helps the government, say to help break encrypted traffic. The odd thing is my idea started by accident, I was playing blackjack online, had two tens, hit the double button by mistake and got an ace, then it got me thinking, what if I knew the card was going to be an ace. Thanks in advance.
