Posted on Wednesday, August 15, 2018 by "T".

Maybe because pinballs machine more 'fair' than slot, lol. I am not sure slot player will play pinball, different taste. Most possible they go to foreign . Same as gambler at my country, go to Singapore, Malaysia, Macao. So money goes to foreign. Good politics ? Big Smile Big Smile

So the people in Italy didn't have a vote in on whether to keep the slot machines or replace them with pinball machines?? a*****e politicians. There are plenty of online casinos with evil slot machines.

I cannot see this ;law coming into effect and it seems like a very strange decision to me. I like a game of pinball but it is nowhere near as popular as slots and there is going to be a lot of opposition to this

It is of course not good i think when politics say this.and that and you have no opinion but have to take what they decide. Why not let people them decide, if they want to play slot, let play slots. If want pinball play pinball

Maybe if they put the same amount of energy and focus on whats going on in the country when bridges are collapsing out of the blue and corruption is rampant on almost every level in their political ground they would be better off altogether...

I think it's a war against casino owners, and the new leadership in Italy wants to shrinking drastically, the influence of casino machines in bars or something else. It is possible that people have made several complaints about this and new politicians have adopted these laws. this is a heavy blow to those who earn money from the slots machines.

But who knows if the low passes, what changes they might do to the game,
adding gambling options to them.

pinball instead of slots ???? ... really ??? ..... it seems to me it's just ridiculous .... I doubt that people who played on slots will switch to a pinball game .... of course from hopelessness can be done different things but ..... in general good luck to the government of Italy

Is a decision that affects all slot lovers in Italy. There have certainly been complaints made by some people who were ruined, and the decision is very drastic for gamblers. They will be able to spend their money online, if the Italian legislation permits internet casino access with real money or to enjoy other pleasures of life with that money. Blink

Of course it is not good when politics decide what to do, but like some people say in this thread it is sometimes problem people lose many money in slots and sometimes get big problems family not have money to buy food or pay for house, so this is what politics try to have no more

They are doing everything in their power to run the "game"
and they are ruining everything in their path.
Who knows what is the real reason behind it, for that change.
I guess the italians will find out after some time, if it ever happens.

Here they kicked most online sites out of the country in order to protect "us" the citizens, from the gambling.
Now the slot machines are crawling in physical betting shops, all over the place...
Nice way to protect us from the gambling.... Smile

If slot owners did not offer good prizes, to the players, i consider that government of Italy he did the right thing. The Italians have a long history in Sua, Italy, Cuba or other countries with casinos and the mafia will be upset, but this is the situation. They have to offer prizes, not only to ruin people.

As a state policy is bad, as they say several who commented on the money goes to other countries, instead of generating those taxes to the Italian treasury, for improvements in the country, are decisions without consulting what benefit could bring them to the country.

Many of the slots players will not spend money on Pinball machines

Yea, like governments all over the planet, aremt getting enough in taxes,
and they need to tax every single thing out there.
Tax this, tax that... In order to fulfill their dreams in politics, they are ruining everything.

Is there anyone at some point that will say no, to more taxes?....
We are charging you enough already, in order to run your lives ?...
