Where else would you expect to find a whole load of old illegal gaming machines but in an old warehouse? I dunno, you can tell its in the states . It'll be a big job with loads of sensational stories about it that'll keep this poker and gambling scam of the US govt going for years.

I don't think they are illegal here,....last I heard, various provinces of Canada license establishments to run them so the governments can ciphon off millions of dollars in tax revenues...

So is this place the machines were found in an operating state or just sitting there in a storage type scenario?
