More on the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act

20 October 2006

Hello, John,

From Canada, home of the free for online gambling, etc.

Enjoyed your article of October 16, 2006 re "prohibition" of online gambling in the U.S.

Just a few thoughts from an outsider:

1. The Republicans have broken up family life. Now the parents, etc., who enjoyed a little online poker or slots after they put the kids to bed will now drive to a casino for the same entertainment.

2. There may be many poker players who secretly are glad while outwardly saying, "Isn't it awful?" Many online poker players have developed their skills so well that they're beating them all in the World Series of Poker, etc.

3. Finally, come across the border to Canada...we welcome all online dodgers!

Cheers,
Jake

Dear Jake,

David Matthews of the Las Vegas Advisor has another analysis of the impact of the bill here.

Best of luck in and out of the casinos,
John


Hello,

A friend of mine told me to feed slot machines dollar bills (lots of them) and then play. She said a friend of hers worked at a casino and that after there is a thickness of bills and the machine is weighted, it will pay.

Is this true or should I jump into the lake of naivety?

Susan

Dear Susan,

Come on in. The water's fine.

This theory is complete nonsense. The machine doesn't care how many bills you put in or what denomination they are.

Best of luck in and out of the casinos,
John
