24% goes to the facility that has the machines, so that is a 3 way division. There is the state, the owner of the machines and the facility that has them.

I heard that a lady won $16,000.00 there about 2 or 3 months ago. You can win, you just have to be the one to hit the button when it is ready to hit.

The machines are designed to always take in more money than they pay out, on average. Sometimes a player gets lucky and wins money, but if you're a regular player you will always pay in more than you win. Also, a machine is never "ready to hit", they are controlled by a random number generator that doesn't know how many people have played, how much money has been played, or how high the bet is.

<quoted text> Did you hear the recent good news? The state just announced that it's not mandatory that you play those machines. Yay! You can now stop playing them, problem solved.
Now there you've said something I can agree with 100%

The machines have a IP address, Mac nuber on the side, hooked up rj 45 style, and most places have wireless routers to communicate to the server! Someone I know hit two machines on caveman keno for $40,000 each in the same day, and two months later for another jack pot.

Personally, I think they are a disgrace. The law as it is set up now is a joke: 5 machines per den, establishments 150 feet apart, so now instead of a few machines in a bar or Moose Lodge, we have dozens of these poker room scattered all over town preying on the folks who can least afford to feed them.

They are a blight on the area as far as I'm concerned.

preying on the folks who can least afford to feed them? how are the machines preying on the poor? i don't see advertisements of any sort urging people to play the video lottery machines - I see powerball/hot lotto ads, but not video poker ads?? I see more ads saying stuff like "if you have a gambling problem, call xxx-xxxx number for help"

I believe if you can't control and manage your money and job, then you get what karma dishes out to you. it's a free country. if you wanna drop your paycheck in a video machine, that's your choice. not me, some risks are worth taking, video lottery is not one of them for me.

I manage a video lottery parlor, the same owners have 24 more locations. They cleared 9 million last fiscal year. I got a whooping $100.oo bonus.
Now these owners own all the machines, and they split 50-50 with the state. I agree with the above statement, but all lottery parlors give out free drinks and snacks. Some sell beer for one dollar or less. I know one place that sells canned beer for one penny with a limit of 6. After drinking 6 beers a lot of people get way loose with their money. I have seen people leave crying because they lost the rent money etc.
There is an enticement law from the lottery commission but its never enforced. I have seen their inspectors take 2 or 3 pks of chips and 2 cokes when they leave.

Are business owners allowed to drink and gamble in their own establishment? Play the machines?
