I hope it doesn't prevent them from doing business with them in the future. Sounds like this could result in a nasty fight with an ending relationship.

I read all that thinking it was going to be some big $$ amount then boom only 15k ! Am I missing something or is the commission on leasing these games that low?

Good luck fighting for your money.

That item popped up on my news feed, so I already sent Dan an email.

I wasn't gonna post it here because I honestly don't know if this is good or bad. I mean, on the surface it sounds bad, but...? So why air potentially dirty laundry?


But now that it's posted here, I'll add my best wishes. Good luck with this Dan!


Regarding the $15K seeming like a low number: This isn't like a personal injury lawsuit where you can claim millions for all sorts of 'pain and suffering' and such. This is merely one company suing another company over a paperwork and payment dispute. OK, It's something of a David & Goliath sort of thing, but maybe by asking for a reasonable amount, it can get settled quickly.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Go Dan! I took on a giant one time and won. I owned an auto glass business and Farmers always short paid, even after approving the amount before the work was done. Nobody wanted to challenge them as it was kind of the hand that feeds you situation. I said screw that, it's wrong. I sued and their attorneys settled about 10 minutes into negotiations.

Don't let them take advantage of you!

$15,000 is almost certainly the minimum grievance amount to file a lawsuit in the court and pretty much means nothing as a dollar figure but getting a foot in court. I'm sure he'll win, otherwise the company wouldn't bother deceiving him.

You read about these type cases usually about music royalties that go back decades, because the victims are usually deceived or sold out and it seems so here. If they're lying about the machines, maybe they're lying about the tables too. Shameful how wicked these big companies are lying, cheating and stealing like they tend to do. Wish they would break up all these mergered companies.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

Sorry to hear this, Dan. In cases like these, it's the lawyers that always win. But Dan is very knowledgeable and I hope he can set a precedent for the future. Good luck fighting them.
The difference between zero and the smallest possible number? It doesn't matter; once you cross that edge, it might as well be the difference between zero and 1. The difference between infinity and reality? They are mutually exclusive.

How did one find out how many placements of his game are out there? He has to visit many casinos and take pictures. Casinos wont tell and from time to time, they move game in and out.....

Asking for $15 k? The legal fee can easily be $10 k....

Depending on how long the dispute goes, you're off by at least an order of magnitude.
