I hear Chinatown is basically a mini-Macau.

Sweet Jesus.

LOL. No money was found being wagered, so not enough evidence to establish that there was illegal gaming. Yeah, sure! 100 slots is no small investment for a bit of innocent amusement. What are the chances that these wicked church goers discouraged the sheriff with a bit of $per$ua$ion$

Most amusing to me is that the church was also probably tax exempt.

Did they have waitresses handing out 'communion'?

Did handpays have a tithe witheld?

Quite a feelgood story, on so many levels. Proper 'mischief' $:o) I wonder what news this was meant to distract us from?
If you are enjoying the game, you're already winning.

In NYC if you get pulled over with a roulette wheel or slot machine in your trunk, you’re going to jail.

Assuming they use real money and just hide it well, I wonder how they protect themselves from slot cheats?

They lock them in behind a door with an electronic lock. Didn't think that through enough !
