You always signed a paper when you played them or they paid out. I think it a shame they took them. Now, are you going to OTB parlors to play them? People paid tax on those machines...I know.

You idiot.. There isn't a slot on any tax return that anyone with any intelligence would put an income in for 'illegally acquired funds.'

Its as bad as drugs, it destroys families to the point that the children go without because their parents have a "Gambling Addiction", they know who an where these places operate, the problem is their too scared to do anything about it, knowingly they are funded by drug dealers, its a racket to distort money from people that cant control their addiction, now, doesnt that sound awhole lot like Drugs?? Think about it.

An important fact has been overlooked. Money won by legal gambling is taxed, so the state gets some benefits from it. The proceeds from illegal gambling benefit only the greedy, money-hungry owner of the "legitimate" business who keeps poker machines in the back room. These machines are labeled "for amusement only"' but everybody knows that if a business has poker machines inside, cash payoffs are made to those who play the machines and win. It's disgusting.the machines are set to payout when alot of money is put in the crazy people who waste their money are just making others rich thousands of dollars are made from these machines in a day.
