It seems the Interblock machines in the state were set up in extra greedy fashion. I have to doubt the company intended to hide that from players, but it seems to have happened.

You suggest the casinos in Florida might have accidentally cheated the gaming public? I'm shocked. Positively shocked!

Next we'll be hearing how casinos doctored the dice with weights. But, no. They wouldn't do that, because then players could just bet the Don't.

Hmmm... Does anyone have any oversized dice calipers?

Said it before, I'll say it again: do not trust the Seminole casinos in Florida. Ever. Nothing is too low for them to shave still more off the usual edge.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

The fact that they took extra commissions is certainly a problem and they should be held accountable. The bigger problem the players should be concerned with is the fact that the dice have magnets in them and the outcome can be manipulated to the houses favor. I say that it is a fact because I have played on the machines and I have seen the dice repeatedly move out of its set position ands spin into different numbers. I would love for someone to exploit this in the court hearings. Im sure the magnets are legal and all part of the language of how the machine operates...for only certain individuals to know and understand... but it exists.

It doesn't necessarily need to be a 7 for the house to win, so just playing the dont wont help. The machine most likely has algorithms which can read all bets being played in the game simultaneously and produce the number that favors the house.. for each roll. So if you see alot of people betting the dont, then place the numbers... vice versa. Ive done this with moderate success but I dont trust any of it. Real craps.. live games is the only way to play.

And they are subject to oversight only by a rubber stamp kept in their lawyer's desk drawer. Want to sue them? Get a tribal lawyer and sue in a tribal court before a tribal judge.

Biloxi has a pretty strong gaming commission, Vegas a rather weak one, but the Seminoles got zilch over seeing them.
