i remember a time when strings and strings of loud bikes rode by my house until I got the dosh. i remember being whisked into a silver Mercedes (mistaken identity and being told my civil rights had been revoked, i remember sitting in a cell - years ago in Nevada (gambling crime before i was 18) I have had my hair pulled with a foot on my neck and a gun in my nose, and i have been shot at more than once(fitzys once and G's twice) and mugged at 3am with no bicycle cops downtown. i could go on and on. I have been threatened with a ten year felony, innocent as I am, as a gambling crime in Rhode Island, simply because I looked like me in a 30 year old gold book picture, and i have sought sanctuary on the mashntucket (how you say?) res in the last couple of months and survived. I have been threatened on the phone by LEO's and had my bail revoked in six counties, including Clark. In Nevada i have been locked in a closet with skellies and heard the yokal talk about whre they came from on the other side of the door, I have abconded (gambling -crime-) and hid beneath the prosecutors desk and used his phone to call my counsel, I have been beaten within an ich of my life by people purpoting to be police, and i have walked the west greenwich campus, nexy amgen, now a day care, made appointments, and approached the Providence campus of gtech before being threatened with a Lincoln gambling crime i could not have committed because i was not there (they use old gold book, believe it) but i have never had someone kick down my door and cap me behind the ear for talking about gtech- that is noty what it is about. Dig deep enough into any online or online casno and you could find that, it is everywhere. gtech is simply too big too fai asnd not because oif that. believe me, I drank moonshoine with rhode island rednecks, i sat in the best and worst bars in providence, and to amn, to amn the locals knew who gtech was - i got lots of pinky finger scares, but never in relation to gtech- okay, ibought a ticket I lied a little, i got appointments. It is something bigger, really i goit the vibe that spielo was untouchable, and that is why i alluded to interpol. It turns out it is true, gtech is cozy'ing up with scigames rather than tryin to dominate now (ref no prob) and they have made enough 30 year profit sharing contracts that it wouldn't matter if tyou shut them down tomorrow. It aint what ya think it is, in your wildest dreams - it is a move by lottery providers, pure and simple, to take th eonlone space - innit? yes it is

I tried to PM you before posting Michael after creating this account but couldn't navigate it. I had a hard time getting an email to you with my original account closed. If this seems untoward, please close this account and accept my apologies.
For others - I had sent a private message to the Wizard asking him to close my account. I didn't realize I had left the last ramble on here. Then I couldn't delete it. Then I decided that as long as it was mostly factual, why bother. I would like to rejoin other conversations.
If this account is allowed to remain I will comport myself in a way that most any reader can understand, to the best of my ability, and not be overly abstract or cryptic in my assertions. I will state opinions and facts. Any are open to challenge.
Unlike most, this is not a bridge I meant to burn.

Briefly, and I realize this may be removed for any reason.
My opinion is that the gaffed games were of little consequence until we saw the response. A simple gaff perhaps. A misplaced dynamic paytable coding. Simple, compensations. But we saw an arrogance that was not some yapping dog in Costa Rica trying to bark an injured player down - we saw Hubris. We saw the most important player in the world say "so what, we will not apologize and if you go tell teacher, we'll send YOU to the office for a spanking". The response of any casino was probably directly proportional to what they had on the line - so no need to sing praise for one and damn another. What we saw here was absolute arrogance from someone who can get away with it.
Why can they do as they please? It is not because the "parent" company has been around since the 1600's, and it is not because they were who they were. It is because they run the numbers for the world. They own every lottery you can think of and they could not get caught with their pants down. In fact they answer to no-one.

So, they have a pit bull. I don't believe that Gtech/finsoft/whatever is a mad dog. I just think that lotteries have gotten away with a certain form of business behaviour (protected by government, offer shitty odds, bluster when busted) for so long that they truly believe they can take the entire gambling space and do as they please. That does attract a certain element. With no answering to anyone but themselves. That's what most people don't get about this - some do.
I never said i was opposed to it. I'm just trying to educate here, and hell no there is nothing we can do about it, is there? Scientific Games (under any alia) owns how many machines on American casino floors, Spielo (under any alias) owns how many? The fix is in, I just wish they would have been nicer about announcing their dominion.
But the fix is in because you let gramma buy scratchies at the packie store, and because you yearn for that 42,000,000:1 payoff when you know you can't have it, and because you let your loved ones lie to themselves, and because you didn't raise your whisper to the man the first time you saw a foodstamp recipient buy a lottery ticket.
The fix is not in over some stupid dynamic miscoding on a reel slot displayed help file of a supposed fixed odds game that brought in maybe 380k (just a guess here or there).
It's in because we let it in - each of us.

The Lottery is an unstoppable force, it always has been. Chinese peasants fought each other to recover the pigeons for what we call Keno. Older bones than have been documented threw some kind of stone. Gambling is intrinsic to man, it just is. As long as the GAME is not dynamically fixed i could not care less about the pay table, and we don't see a fixed game here in that respect - we do see a bad pay table displayed dynamically - I will go for" Finsoft effed up when they "enhanced" the Realistic game" explanation. That is all we have to go on. So let it go and chase them into OPAP Greece if you want and see their behavior when they have the ball lol

Thank you sir.

Have any online followers seen what these guys are doing in Greece since they got the controlling share of OPAP with Emma Delta? It's a virtual lock-up monopoly. Damn sharp investment, and it shows their true colors.

Well I guess no one knows, know one cares, or nobody cares. I'll take that as point proven. They own the space I guess.

Anyone who folded to this should put a sign up that says "owned by gtech". That's my opinion. Shall we start with the New Jersey board or Nevada? Should we go as far as all of the forums who have censored this discussion? It was bound to happen sooner or later, and there was bound to be someone like me promoting their borg reality - because make no mistake my friends, foes or otherwise - this is the landscape and they enjoy the discussion. Why on earth legal beagles or any other shits need to be discussed is beyond my ken when the pup of the Minister of Finance of (not now so great because of this) Great Britain was allowed to threaten one of the only purveyors of truth in gambling and he shut his mouth forthwith.
The capital has run out on the issue for most - it has become a losing proposition for any affiliate who wanted to make hay. Now we are left with anyone who gives two shakes or not. Forums have been censored, so far this one has not.
I don't find discussion here so I will assume none of it matters, the issue is settled, or someone intimidated all the readers too by proxy.
Believe me, I have better things to do than beat bonuses, chase rogue operators, or even gamble. I'm just blown away by the lack of interest in what could be exciting education to the realities of a bet laid and a bet paid.

With no argument to the contrary I will assume that every reader knows and believes that the lottery will control the space, online and onl and. If you have a a contrary opinion I will entertain it.

BTW I'm not persona non grata on most forums without reason - I threaten the affy hold. Nothing like that here.
