Did Diamond Jo in Iowa over react? A man punched a slot machine and was arrested for causing over two thousand dollars in damages.

NOTE: Are all Boyd Casinos offering FOURTEEN times points on Valentine's Day or only Diamond Jo's?

He vandalized their machine. Screw that guy. Obviously his addiction wasnt worth looking the other way any longer.

14X points on slots in Tunica too, but excludes VP. It's not 14X at Blue Chip in Indiana.

Depends on the damage, whether the machine is otherwise Somehow defective and the age of the machine. Some degree of punching should be accounted for in the design of the machine, depending on the strength of the punch, but not if a person is wearing a ring. I just don't want to say it is always 100% on a patron, sometimes it could just be the straw that breaks the camel's back. Really don't know.any particulars, so can't blanket.

I was more thinking along the lines of 'we are sorry you allowed yourself to become overly emotional at your losses but since you did cause damage to our equipment and disrupt our operations, we would like you to sign this confession of judgment so as to avoid being arrested and getting a criminal record,

Also:

Did anyone find out about that fourteen points on valentine's day??
If all Boyd casinos have it that might be of interest to a good many members here.

I do a lot of work with taverns that have slot machines. It is very common for a patron to hit the slot machines and break the screen. Generally the patron is told to pay for it or it will be turned over to authorities.

I think that is a much more enlightened policy than Boyd seems to have.

So it's essentially extortion? Pay us an arbitrary price for a used part now or try the legal system? Guess that's the program at a lot of casinos. Kind of scares me if you hit the screen too hard they'll point the finger and ban you Nationwide.

Back when machines all had belly glass, friend smashed it by tapping it, left and never had to pay. It might have already been broken for all.he knew.

There are a bunch of videos on YouTube of people busting slot machines. The funniest one is the guy who comes back with an axe!
