Any update on the Wixiplay cheating sandal? I take it all sites with the same software should be suspect?
Thanks for all you do.

Thanks. Keep those questions coming. Live stream tomorrow.

Virginia will soon have casinos* and it's a state many people thought would never have them. What states do you think will continue to 'hold out' for at least a few decades, or will there be any?

Had you ever heard of Juneteenth? do you think it will become a de facto holiday , official holiday, or forgotten next year and after [except Texas and maybe Oklahoma]?

You’ve remarked that it’s really hard to come up with a successful new table game.

Are there any games you’ve seen that you thought would be huge hits but they failed?
If anyone gives you 10,000 to 1 on anything, you take it. If John Mellencamp ever wins an Oscar, I am going to be a very rich dude.

In your most recent CE video you examine a poker game utilizing a deck with the 2s, 3s, 4s and 5s removed. What are your thoughts on using such a deck? Do you find it interesting? Gimmicky? Confusing to players?

What are your and Heather's favorite types of strange phenomena (such as ghosts, ESP, space aliens, bigfoot etc)? Note: You need not actually believe in the phenomena.
