I'd like to hear what you and Munchkin think about the casino credit system [markers] and the involvement of that system with incidents of well-to-do problem gamblers getting taken to the cleaners [like certain professional athletes]
My question got included, thanks [if still tuning in here]
Neither host came down too hard on it. Munchkin leveled a charge at casino mendacity but ultimately said we need to realize we need these suckers in order to support the rest of us. Not in so many words and I don't think he meant it to sound like it did. On the other hand, plenty of people including the Wizard have said we need less informed players to play the bad-rule-games for the same reason. That's similar but not as, well, not as depraved.
One thing I gather is that anyone who has used casino credit is likely to "appreciate it" - and this makes us hesitate to criticize it. I appreciate and use it too for that matter.
