If the state has a compact with the Seneca's saying that the Seneca's have exclusive slot rights then the state should honor the compact and remove the violatiing machines then the Seneca's would honor their side and pay the royalties. What is wrong with Patterson anyway? Lame Duck

Each Class III slot machine (Seneca casinos) uses an internal random number generator to determine wins and losses on that individual machine.

All Class II (NYS Racinos) slots are tied to one random number generator in a central computer. The slot machine itself does not determine whether you win or not. Instead, it is part of a networked game.

The question is why didn't the Seneca Nation initiate the compact arbitration when they felt there was a problem. Its obvious their argument is on shakey ground.

Tit for tat reactions often brings negative results and now the problem for the Seneca Nation is how does it save face.
