While changing channels I came across a movie, "The Honeymoon Machine" staring Steve McQueen from 1961. They were using onboard ship mainframe computer to compute odds for roulette wheel and using signaling lantern to send messages to/from ship to casino. Computer named Max. Interesting use of military computer system.
