Re: “Sweepstakes gambling on the way out in NC?

I am so glad these Casinos are being closed down. I am a 71 year old female who lives in the state of Virginia and travels 50 + miles one way to get to these hell holes and dens just to find myself sticking $100 bills through the window so many times without taking out one brown penny. Yes, this hell is addictive. I've seen many crooked-illegal endeavors in these places that no one can do anything about, only the "law". I hope the owners of these cafes realize one day how they have hurt the poor and be placed in a financial position to feel the same pain as we do as we have lost so much. I can safely say that I have lost over $60,000 in one years' time going from hell-hole to hell-hole. I've lost my home and 2 new automobiles, messed up my credit for life as I can not recover myself because of the addiction. Everyone calls it electronic CRACK. When you win over $500 you have to go back each day until you get all your money in $500 increments. The reason they say, is to avoid filling out tax forms, which is tax evasion. The owners know that people will end up playing the money back because they have the machines rigged against your ID number and you can only lose. Good people, we need to find another hobby that we can pacify ourselves with while keeping money in our bank accounts and in our pockets rather than supporting these mega-rich CROOKS.
