The people who play those amusement only poker machines are addicts. They become addicted to them like people taking drugs. A addict can play those things and loose everything they have They do not realize you can't win the owners of the machines are the winners! I know people who actually went into poverty putting all their money in those machines. Shame shame!!!!! I can't believe they are not against the law. But this is Knox county. Sad

Adults are allowed to do stupid crap... Generally people that try to force other people to not do stuff they enjoy get really upset when someone tries to tell them to not do stuff they enjoy....

They are illegal and yes they pay out money as we all know...and yes they are kids going hungry because their already low parents put their food,bill,clothes ,money in the poker machines ...that's terribly sorry of those folks in Knox and surrounding areas ..now why not put a stop to this like middlesboro did not sure if all have been opted out their or not !! The people who own the actual machines where it be 5to25 are making a good living I hope they stop paying off and get busted ..and have too pay more than they have ever taken in from stupid ppl who play and the families who loose!!!
