Over the top casino rules

PC gone bad...
During lengthy debates in the Massachusetts House and Senate, legislators have weighed all sorts of restrictions on casinos - from bans on smoking and free drinks to limits on ATM withdrawals, midnight closing times, slot machine warning labels and visits from public health counselors for gamblers who've spent too much time feeding quarters into slots.

"Why is it a nanny state to say they have abide by the same rules as everyone else?" the Democratic lawmaker said. "It is not a nanny state, it is an equal playing field."

Other states have been reluctant to ban smoking in casinos.

Other failed House amendments would have set a $500 limit on how much an individual could lose in a day, prohibited the use of so-called casino luck ambassadors to urge people to return to slot machines as they're heading to the exit doors and required a public health official to intervene if someone has continued betting for more than 12 hours at a time.

If you have too many restrictions the gamblers will just go to a different state to have a more enjoyable time...
Closing a casino from midnight to 8 am...
Just a bad idea...

I went to Foxwoods once. When I walked in I saw a sea of gray heads pumping quarters into the slots about as fast as they could and with the bells and noise and cigarette smoke it really turned me off.

Well, I figured that as long as I was there, I finally broke down and threw a roll of quarters at a slot machine.

I haven't been back and I have no interest in going back.

Where I live, as a volunteer fire police I have seen many accidents on the interstate with people on their way home from the casinos either asleep or drunk or both.

New casinos in the area? Thanks, but no thanks.

More ingenious ideas from the morons on Beacon Hill. This one takes the cake. Bravo.

Only Massachusetts legislators could ruin a perfect source of income. I guess we will continue to watch our taxes rise, year after miserable year ... until there's not a dime left for us to spend.

How about helmets for the waitstaff? They could fall, you know. :sick: :roll: :mad:


SOOOOO TYPICAL!!!!!!
