It's just a penny and I don't see why they shut it down, it might have to do with uniformity everywhere but common, they playing for fun and not that big money. And they are senior people sad, but think they will play with chips now!
These dangerous 'high roller' criminals truly participate in some 'shakey' gambling racket so the state did only what they could. Its truly fantastic that they legalize marijuana and strike down on these 'mobsters' on the same year. Freedom, America, f**kyeah!!! No real wall street banker who caused the meltdown in 2008 got any prison time but these authorities always on the edge when its about the money the IRS didnt have their hands on. Its a shame.

Leave it to scum bag politicians and government law enforcement officials to harass senior citizens for playing cards. Heaven forbid they spend their time trying to stop real criminals. What a bunch of crap. They wonder why people hate them so much. Leave the old folks alone you dirt bags.

what the fcuk penis-ante pinochle game...this surely sounds like underground porn club- good to see the perverts club busted, no one will be sticking their penis is a slot machine any more in Washington. i knew that people in US of A are a bit horny, but an underground penis-in-a-slot-machine club, where's the world heading to
The NSA and the IRS and the FBI and the Mickey Mouse Club all should go after these dangerous criminals. They should strike down with all their legal and political power to try to stop these 'mobsters'... The funny thing though, that if they would do this in a native american reservation the same goddamn laws would protect their games. But they are elderly, they are easy to f**k with. Still doesnt understand how come bingo nights is allowed but penny card games is forbidden.
