See what the high price of gas has caused. A good operation gone bad cause a fool couldn't put gas in his ride to get there. What a shame. Those machines are worth more than gold.

The problem is that the govt. was not getting any revenue from these machines like they do with the lottery. Other than that, not much difference.

South Carolina would have all the money they needed if they had kept the poker machines legal. I tried to run a small convience store after they were taken away, and i couldn,t do it.Someone really needs to rethink this, thank you, Alice Martin

Police should be out looking for real criminals. Not this type. Did they get the idea from the N. Charleston police department?

I also find it amazing that such a big deal is made out of the Carolina Cup and you can't place a bet on a horse!! Or with the Derby this weekend, and there's no OTB (Off-Track Betting) in this state to go and place your bets.

Those poker machines were everywhere in SC. They sure did bring in a lot of tax dollars for SC. Everyone wants to gamble some time in their lives. I guess the SC Lotto is all we have left.

Why did this man picture get posted with his article but when there was a illegal gambling bust on the "other side of town", there were no pictures?

Poker in the rear, liquor in the front.
