Question by : Your thought’s on gambling..?
So i worked at one of these Internet cafe stores around Central Florida. In a sense what my store was doing was “gambling” but it was under the cover through phone cards and “sweepstakes Games” and instead of Cashing out you redeemed money back. Which in turn is the same thing just called something different. Well I been looking for a job 6 months, single mother 2 kids, no house, llsing my car, and finally these people offer me a job, 2 weeks later, my store gets supposively “raidied” and shut down. The media played me out to be a criminal. When i got the job I signed a Government W4 official document, the state allowed to take taxes out of my job which they deemed was Illegal. I ask you how is my store any different from the “legal” Horse races (OBS) or the Dog Track Races, Or The “Jai-Alai’ we have here or any different from the Bingo. The State definition of a Slot Machine is:
any device that by insertion of money, coin or other object is caused to operate, and the operator by reason of any element of chance might receive or become entitled to anything of value.
Wouldn’t that Mean that The CRANE machine out front of Grocery Stores are Slot Machines as well?? I find this all ridiculous when in fact Marion County is highest in Florida for Job loss, (so lets take 100 jobs away) There are crack heads and robbing places and shooting folks, But now were concerned about some adult, mutually agreed-upon “gambling” I think its bogas.. like to hear your thoughts..
