What makes her think these guys will pay if they have to?
Because they can Tom.
These are incredibly profitable operations with very little overhead and almost no labor costs. For most the biggest bills are storefront rents and utilities followed by the monthly costs associated with buying the machines.
If they weren't profitable why would they have fought the ban so hard?
Now from a religious standpoint I don't support these operations nor do I support the Lottery but I am aware that others do - so from my perspective I won't go to one but I will not impose my beliefs on others. I think the Gov has the right idea though. If they are "legal" they should be taxed and those monies go to education just like the lottery.
I am confused by one thing though.
It appears to me that NC has a thirst for gambling (as much as I hate to admit it). Why have thousands of small gaming sites when in fact a few large casinos would be easier to regulate?
