more gambling means more corruption ,more bribes and kickbacks, more mafia involvement in politics, more delinquents, addicts, prostitutes, and criminals roaming the streets, more domestic abuse cases, more broken homes, less money spent on small businesses (gamblers lose all their money on gambling instead of spending on things that help the local economy). bad bad all around. people who voted for this filth are going to get more filth

There are already gambling machines in many establishments in your community and those are going to be illegal. With the new gaming it is directly tied in to a computer program much like the lottery that will monitor every dollar. The State will get 25%, your community 5%, the establishment 35% and the terminal operator 35%. The State.s share will go to creating jobs in road infrastucture. The communities will most likely use it for staffing and the establishment will be able to stay in business. An in depth investigation is done for the operators and establishments before they have been granted licenses. As for the delinquents, addicts, prostitutes and criminals roaming the streets... open your eyes... they are already there.
