Thanks for all you did for us Wiz.
Before I discovered the odds site, I was strictly a poker player.
Now due to your odds site, I play a variety of games in Vegas and have a lot more fun.
Please forward my donation to charity :-)

Sending my donation to a Vegas food bank is perfect. When I was there last month I was rude to a panhandler. Now I feel a little better about it.

purportedly some guys gave quite a bit ... myself not included

for those guys, that really needs to be returned


Actually, I'd be real curious to know if the refund requests come more from the lower end or higher end donations.

Something makes me think it's gonna be the lower end.

I gave $100. I don't know where that falls. IMO it is a lot to give to someone I have never met. On the other hand, it is about 5 minutes at a slot machine. I appreciate that it is being returned now that it is not needed.

How about some of us in Vegas meet up for craps with the donation money lol. Would be fun to fill a table with dark side players. Not that I've donated a significant amount, but it would be fun.

Not to cause you more work, but I would purfur (Get it?) the $100 I donated went to this cat charity in Vegas on Flamingo.

http://www.allfurloveanimalsociety.org/



That will be fine. Anybody else who made a donation, who isn't requesting it back personally, that prefers this cat charity to Three Square, please let me know.

In other news, I checked on my business mailbox today and there were a couple checks that I will be immediately returning. I'll just say that one is going to Akron OH and the other Redondo Beach CA.

If I would have known how much your sites were worth, I would have directed my donation right to charity. It's getting there at the end anyway, so no harm. Congrats Mike!

DJ, not sure why you're upset at people caring about their donations. Oh well.

I consider a 100 donation alot, you should get it back.
Mine was just a 20 so fine with that small amount going to charity.

Because they were donations. They were never intended to be retuned.

It wasn't like "lending" money to your broke brother, where you really don't expect to get it back. These "donations" were payment for the better gambling experience we had as a result of reading WoO and being a member here.

We paid what amount we thought was right for a product that we continue to use. Why ask for refunds?

Now Mike fell into a boatload of cash, and suddenly, everyone is counting his money, and sticking thier hands in his wallet. It's just wrong.

It's unfortunate that it was so recently that the tin cup was out, enabling people to connect the two events. I wonder if many people would have made the same connection if the sale took place many months or years later...


It makes me wonder. If Mike had won the Lion's Share instead of selling the sites, would people still ask for refunds?

+1. As to your last question, absolutely, and even more voraciously.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
