Everyone (AP's included) loved Teliot (Eliot Jacobson, Ph.D.) right?

Here is an issue of, 'People in Gambling," featuring him:

I guess there is a new article on Colorado's enforcement of abandoned credits and dropped chips but I get an error message when I try to click on it.

I'm jinxed, my computer doesn't like me. the title is part two but the error pages reads part three not found.

Between my mouse and my luck, I'm about ready to pack it in.

One thing about jurisdictions is that civil lawsuits can change casinos behavior.

In Vegas minors can't be alone or sit at a table or gamble but in some casinos the only way to get to the hotel is thru the casino.
Yet in Biloxi if a minor goes one foot past the security guard its citation time, not warning but criminal record. One woman was challenged by a guard and she ran three steps to catch up with her boyfriend's hip pocket for her id and she was darn near tackled by the guard.

Flea,

Hmmm... maybe for an unattended minor.

However, I often see minors (with one or more adults) at Biloxi casinos walk through the casino to get to the buffet, for example.

Also, the entrance to the live-stage theater at the Beau Rivage is quite a ways inside the casino. I have seen long lines of mostly children (again, with an adult) in line to see the Xmas special (or similar). The kids get to watch nearby slot players for several minutes as the line inches toward the actual theater entrance.

And, the floor layout at the Golden Nugget Casino in Biloxi is totally screwed up. There is no way to get to the hotel registration desk without passing through some part of the gaming area. Also, one cannot go from the hotel registration desk to the hotel elevators without going past the small "smoke free" slot area that is immediately across from the ice-cream and candy shop (which I believe I have seen kids can walk to without an adult accompanying them).

In my experience, the casinos (try to) keep reasonable security around these "blended" areas.

This took place immediately post-Katrina in a 'sweat the money' joint in which I darn near grabbed the stick from the stickman and demonstrated what a proctologist does. Terrible place. I'll try to look up the civil suit that was either filed or threatened to be filed long ago by a minor who didn't like getting a misdemeanor on his record.

4. UKGC for Politically Correct Gaming Expos?
........Its a trade show for commerce, not LOCAL commerce.
5. Max Bets for UK Betting Shops? (Fixed-Odds places)
........Northern Island had restrictive laws on this ALL the time even though UK was more liberal in bet limits.

Greetings!

I'm firing this thread back up with an Article about vulturing, meeting other vultures and spreading competition for plays. I decided to revive this thread because I didn't exactly have a good lead for a new thread in mind and no current threads are really about this subject.

https://wizardofvegas.com/articles/the-vultures-are-dead/

Thanks as always for reading!
