Maybe the Injuns should make it a family night- first a good meal on the house - with free beers - and some free chips and quarters/ halves for the slots and loosen up slots for some decent winnings - Accounting in the black sure beats in the red any day- give some more to the people and get more black than red- on your books - It's your choice or the farmer's can take their land back and you can go back to the reservation and weave baskets and make beef jerky- the choice is your's.......

Well if you people were not so GREEDY maybe there would be more people playing. You've adjusted those machines so tight that no one wins. You loose because of your Greed. I stopped going. I was going to start sending you a check in the mail so I could save on the Gas money.
Agreed.

I stopped going nearly as much as I used to. Starting about 4 years ago, they just turned the screws to the point where the machines aren't any fun to play. Loosen them up and I'll go back, but I don't see that happening any time soon..
The first couple of years these places were open, the odds were pretty good that you would find a machine that would let you play. Once in a while you got a nice hit, but more importantly, you were allowed to play. Some days, you could put a twenty in, and the machine would let you play for a couple of hours. Not anymore. Those days disappeared about 4 or 5 years ago.

Did they think people were blind to this fact?

I live nearby and used to go frequently. Used to be an enjoyable way to kill time and get out of the house.

But they have shot themselves in the foot.

It's become comical. I received an email from Foxwoods today, trying to lure me into the building with some sort of candy give away.

How desperate do these pigs look when they're trying to lure you into the building with candy?

Bailouts and the reason for them was a process started by Democrats - who went along with George H.W. Bush - a Republican , with the treaty Nafta / Free Trade rammed through Congress in 1993- also Fannie Mae/ Freddie Mac -in 1995 by the same Democrat and mishandled by Democrat Community Organizers Obama's and Acorn that demanded and forced into law by attacking the banks and calling them racists - until they gave out $$$billions in bad loans to people that didn't have jobs or earned too little or were illegal immigrants or they sold investments overseas to people that thought the deals were good, but were put together as scams - overvalued at best- When the banks showed no profits only losses because of bad business practices and no down payments required on any of the loans - and default was the order of the day- there were big problems - No business should be conducted like the Real estate fiasco and should never again- the warnings were there for the last seven years all ignored by Democrats - including Obama - so if the Casino's are hard pressed tell them to contact their representatives and dismantle Nafta - bolster our Industrials and before all the money is paid out in bailouts insure that better business practices are in force.
You're an idiot.

Any chance you might be able to find a way to kill yourself before the evening is over with?

Close the casinos and maybe people will actually use their money wisely instead of throwing it away on slots!
Naaaaaaa, turn them over to the State of Connecticut to run, they'll manage to really lose money. And the odds of winning will be zero, but it will make interesting reading here.

Time for you injuns and gamblers to wake up. Bubba Clinton who is making tens of million dollars in one day, is filthy rich. He gave us Nafta and the sellout of our industrial base to China, we even subsidized the move. He promised to teach us new jobs to compete in the
Bush invention called Globalization,
The new jobs were outsourced to India
by his wife, Hillary, and the Clintons in yesterday's paper, are recieving millions of dollars from India for
Bubba's Fund..Wake up America, the payoffs are big in the Clinton Machine.

The machines are tighter than they used to be? I thought it was just me! Lately on the few occasions I have gone there I have not made very much and most machines do not pay out. Nor do I see anyone else winning jackpots. When I first started going around 1997-2000 I would win almost every time. Seemed like the place was buzzing with employees running around paying out the jackpot people won. Then it slowed down a lot. I was spending way too much so I stopped going as often. Now I have little interest in going just because the machines seem so "tight." Just no fun anymore.

Can't believe all these simpletons put their money into these slots month after month when the casino never takes the short end of it. Man, this has to be the biggest Ponzi scheme of all time. No wonder why all these people get into this action. A sucker born every minute.

No, the revenue losses will be made up by elected Republicans putting their wives and daughters out on the street. While they extol their Christian virtues at the press conference.

The only casino game you have a chance of winning at is craps. And then only in Las Vegas (downtown odds).
