Well, what game was it?  If we don't know what game, how do we know if it was justified or not?

Money is the only thing that matters to Texans.

Not known for frequent outbreaks of measured, reasonable conflict resolutions.

They don't say "casino" anywhere, and they keep referring to a "gaming machine." Does Texas have slot machines in gas stations or something?
 
2021-11-24 12:39:22 PM  
That's an automatic banning from the casino.   For 6 hours.  Or until they get more money.

I don't waste money on gaming machines, but if I saw someone douse a machine with lighter fluid and set it ablaze, I'd give serious consideration to whether her behavior constituted a significant enough threat to my life (or someone else's) to justify shooting her.

Some bbq joints have a few gambling machines in a curtained off back room. Classy. All the buttons are sticky.

Didn't Texas make it legal to buy and carry guns without permits and other restrictions?  Well that will work out fine.  I think I want to open a funeral home there.

Actually yes, I used play call of duty with a few. They did put up with some extra shiat.. those the racist shiat I that always worse. I don't think they would ever even consider burning a gamming rig, they know.

Bingo.

Modern slots use cherries because old slots used to have different fruits like lime, orange, & watermelon because those were the fruit flavors of chewing gum you would win. Because gambling for money/with money is illegal. So you'd win some gum, but could then sell it back/return the item for its cash equivalents to make money.

So in Texas, you win crap merchandise at the gas station or game room such as a pack of gum, loaf of bread, gallon of milk, deodorant stick, random John Wayne knife, dream catcher, beef jerky, carbonated beverage, whatever. Then you just sell it back to get the cash.

Texas is trying legalize gambling with 4 major resort zones in 4 major cities where alcoholic beverage laws, along with other, will be suspended to create little Las Vegas' of their own. But the LT Gov stopped the vote from happening.

It would help allot to shut these game rooms down who don't seem to actually be regulated for payout minimums on their games of chance. Since of course they're legal classified as amusement ls ir some bs instead of games of chance.

Funny I hadn't heard much about them lately. There was a bunch of moralizing over 8-liners back in the 90s. Lt. Dan stopping the vote is certainly a nod to his evangelical overlords. Good to see nothing has changed and the same evangelicals who are scared of gambling keep making money under the table from unregulated games.
