    But I don't think PAPSA applied to them.
    Indians run crap tables but can't use dice b/c that is a CA law. Total and usual hypocrisy of government.

      Could be a state law to make it Indian only. Michigan has a similar agreement. I think only 2 casinos are not Indian-owned.

        It's OC tavern. Before they took horses I allowed patrons to wager through my accounts while the owner had the races on.
        Sammy's in Lake Forest is a great bar to wager with more tellers and betting machines. Some large Pick 6 tickets hit there. According to the owner, he'll be able to take Sports Bets when approved. Not sure how much truth to that.
        Any contributions greatly appreciated

          Good chance its one who is being backed by Vegas interests. Boyd was backing an anti-casino coalition here because it would Be in direct competition with their Blue Chip Casino.

            I've never understood these California casino gambling laws. Indian casinos are the only ones to have "Vegas style" gambling. The card rooms can't bank. Why not just give people what they want? And why be so PC and give the Indians everything they ask for? I don't have complete trust in those Indian casinos. Imagine the scenario if you were cheated by them and went to tribal court. That would be a real fair trial (insert eye rolling emogie).

              Can't like your chances in tribal court when the judge is named Stomping Justice.

              Original comedy not a strong suit.

                And if California splits into 3 separate states (which will be on the November ballot), then things can get interesting.

                  Virtually zero chance. Even if the initiative passed, Congress must approve.

                    Yup, it is just a scam vote for the liberal run state to get a real feel on what the folks across the state really think.

                      That was hilarity at its finest. I believe it was called TOMAC, which stands for Taxpayers of Michigan Against Casinos.

                      I remember when the group was being pressured to publish its donor list. They steadfastly refused for awhile until the Pokagons took them to court to force it. You can imagine the hubbub when it came out that Boyd Gaming was far-and-away the biggest contributor.

                        You answered your own question before you even asked it.

                        Because California...

                        Keep in mind folks that this is a state that requires owners of parking garages to post signs at each entrance stating that gasoline contains substances known by the State to cause cancer in laboratory animals. Same with coffee now I believe.

                        You cannot make this shit up....
