    Hey Jack, et al-

    HOW???

    This has become a legal, nasty, but common practice heard of at Tribal casinos- that play scared money.

    Some may recall a malfunction call at a slot $$$ jackpot at a similar casino in Arizona. After a Mexican citizen lady hit the jack, technician advised that they needed time to verify, when the unsuspecting player returned the techs made an unsubstantiated claim that there was a malfunction and as per rules therefore she disqualified for the payoff. The management flatly refused the payout ot even negotiation.

    The player took her case on line and rightly howled loudly; many people started a boycot campaign which caught the attention of co-managers Harrahs Casinso. Eventually Harrahas, fearing loses from a negative campaign solely paid off against Tribal wishes.

    Naturally its everyone's right to write letters to all gaming authorities including the President but the sole overing decsion is with the soverign nation status the govn't granted the tribes so they are immune & exempt from normal state or federal gaming regulations.

    Be aware: Many people are innocently unaware of thsi when they step into a casino property on a reservation i.e, there is no court of last resort,

    UGH!!!

      That is a scary story.  I realize a casino is considered a private club and can exclude whoever they chose, but it seems they just didn't want to pay up.

        Vegas is carefully constructed to propel visitors toward disaster,” writes Rankin. “Most guests are in freefall. Naïve, unsuspecting, they have no defense. I witness the assisted suicide every night; I’ve seen it a million times. I’m almost guaranteed to be there when the thrill ends.”

          Tribal casinos do flaky things.

          When the casinos were spreading to midwestern riverboats, Mississippi, Iowa and other places tribal casinos would put want ads in Nevada and Atlantic City newspapers that concluded:

          WE ARE A NATIVE AMERICAN PREFERENCE EMPLOYER

          (Let anyone else try getting away with something like that).

          I worked on an Illinois casino river boat with a few people who had worked in tribal casinos. They said that om prder to open up they would recruit from other casinos, then when they got up and operating a notice would go up in personnel:

          From this date on 70% of the staff will be Native Americans in all positions.

          Also, no "paleface" was ever given a payday or three days after off becuase that's how long it was before all the natives came back to work after payday (firewater).

          I'm talking about the smaller casinos, not someplace like Foxwoods, which is one of the most successful casinos in the world.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
