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.
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.
