Man! Like they don't make (take) enough money, they won't even make you leave if the place is on FIRE!!

I'd think smoke from the fire would be a welcome reprieve from the cigarette smoke that permeates the place. Bet the "customers" were upset if it monopolized any of their play time...ha.

Does Mystic Lake pay taxes to support the fire departments NOT located on their property? They have their own fire department right across the street from the casino.

"As a precaution, personnel were evacuated from the immediate area and some guests were moved to another part of the casino. "

They probably had to pick them up, along with the slot machine they were playing, on a big two-wheel cart. I've seen the day-time droolers out there...it would take more than a fire to get them to leave a hot machine!

Maybe it was an angry guest that set the fire. Probably lost a few grand and wanted to take it out on the casino.

what kind of taxes do they pay, isn;t the casino on reservation land, i know they sell tax exempt cigarettes out there, do they have to pay property taxes ? maybe you could explain to us what taxes they pay and back it up with some proof.

they pay federal taxes on every dollar they make, which happens to be the most taxes paid on the dollar to a government that committed genocide against the native american, but unlike those winers in isreal who got their own country by the world body, all we get is racial slurs by people who along with their government are occupying our country then cry about how much tax we pay!

Occupying "our country"? LOL! You're damn fortunate you or any of your ancestors are even around to whine about it. There are several "groups" of people such as Native Americans, that have been completely wiped off the planet forever. Believe it or not, I'm not trying to be a jerk, I'm stating plain, and simple facts. The strong survive, the meek and the weak get wiped out. Been happening since the beginning of time, and will keep happening until the end of time. You can take that to the bank (along with your Tax Free casino money!).

Wow. I can not believe the post on this site. Or how uninformed you all are about this community. Do some research before you make ignorant comments.
