I wonder if the lower class will try to gamble the little amount of money they have? If they lose(which is most likely), then will there be any responsibility on the state to aid those who gamble their money away irresponsibly? What do you all think?

anon, you seem pretty concerned about the "lower class." Do you really think they're rushing out to "Hollywood Casino?" If they're so desperate to spend what little money they have left, don't you think they would have bet it on the horsies by now?

Yeah, I think so. If you're so concerned, then I'd like to propose a simple dress code for all of the new "casinos" in PA... No camouflage clothing allowed. Simple as that. Dude walks in like he's hiding from deer in the forest, and bam... he's gone. He gets to keep his money and the senior citizens get to keep playing their slot machines.

It's a win-win!

You make some pretty wild assumptions regarding camo clad people.... May want to be careful with that as it certainly isn't true

It is not the responsibility of the State to modify the behavior of the people, or to accept the responsibility of it's people. The state gets involved enough. Remember what Reagan said. "If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. If it stops moving, subsidize it."

No the state has no responsibility. Period. Yet they facilitate it. Some poor bastard loses everything because he can't stop pushing the button, well, they ll give him the number of gamblers anon and he'll go his merry broke way.
Good on 'em. This is how dummies learn.

Never Again. The first thing we noticed was that, unlike Vegas and Atlantic City casinos, there were no bells ringing or lights going off during the 2 hours we played the slots at Grantville. The machines are obviously set with unusually high odds and/or very low payouts. Save yourself the money and the trip. Unless gaming tables are installed, the state will always win and the poor consumer will continue to always lose. I think PA should do a better job of regulating the payouts or else no one will return. Customers will go elsewhere and this "racino" will be filing for bankruptcy and the state will have to bail it out. Oh yes, get rid of the super senior security guards and frumpy, over weight employees. We can see that in Strawberry Square during coffee breaks. How does one get a job at this casino? Do you have to be a relative of someone on the gaming commission or a retired state worker?Aren't there any good looking, youthful and/or pleasantly smiling workers in Central Pennsylvania?

You are all crazy gamble for the fun not the money its an adult only arcade.
If you go to win then stay home cause you will lose. its true some get lucky but odds are they put it back the same week they get it.
So go if you like its a good time at a nice casino
