Well do not know why the states police bother with such a small thing if they were to eliminate gambling for all, better start by legalizing it as there will be no black market gambling afterwards, underground poker cash games would not exit then , but then there might still have some occasional underground stuffs, but most of them would be controlled if if it is legal again! Anyway poor hot dog vendor. He is just doing that to earn a bit more cash i presume, but hey the police will come lol

Here in Hungary all slots were made illegal about two years ago so slots and video poker disappeared in previous ways from pubs and bars however special illegal internet connected terminals with the most common online casinos appeared instead of the old ones. They are seized almost every day. Big business.
