As if there weren't enough scams targeting the elderly already. All we need is reverse ATM's set up right in the nursing home.. lol.

I saw them, while working the nightshift, in the Activity Room, can't say for sure if they were run on credits or not. This was a Private Pay nursing home, not dependent on Medicaid, by no means.

Just did a little research and it definitely would not be profitable unless the machines were being played 24/7 non-stop like in 7-11 stores.

I am not even going to get into this one, but there are more than enough slot machines everywhere I go. They do not need them in my apartment complex.

I agree with you but some tenants dont seem to think so. Especially those with disabilities.

On a different subject...Are there any web sites that show a live feed traffic cam of Vegas? Any street, anywhere.

Von, I'm finding some of your ideas on this apartment complex a tad schizophrenic.

Besides...a "craps" table would probably be more their style.

IT will NEVER happen.

GCB wold have no way to police the machines and their honesty and integrity.

We would be as honest as an Indian Casino
