I have visited these roach infested smoke holes for three years. Each month, they are getting worse and worse for customer payouts. They may abide by North Carolina laws, but they are treating customers with little respect. Ever since the Community Boards were installed, and our .02 are being clicked up there, they are paying out less and less. It starts out paying you 3-5 0's, then they pay out .05 and it may increase to .15 a spin. You might luck up and win the 20.00 or 30.00 off of the Community Board but more than likely, you will not be chosen. If they don't get any better, then they need to close for a while. Internet Café Worker's, keep your resume' updated and continue seeking other employment.

Government should not try to stop a new business from opening up giving more jobs to the community and giving more money to the government through taxes. The sweepstakes software is perfectly legal and not harming anyone. Why are we stopping the american dream???

If you look at some of these places all they draw is trash pure trash. And they pop up everywhere anywhere there is a vacant spot they move in,like roaches. There in every crack and crevice. I say vet rid of them all WPD!!!!!

If this is illegal then the North Carolina Lottery needs to be shut down immediately. The lottery is GAMBLING WITH MONIES PAID OUT IMMEDIATELY!! Why is law enforcement turning their heads when it comes to lotteries? AND SHUT DOWN CHEROKEE, TOO!!! I don't give a damn who supposedly owns the land IT IS IN NORTH CAROLINA AND THEY SHOULD ABIDE BY THE LAWS!!! Do away with the lottery and Cherokee immediately if you are going to enforce the so called gambling law. How much revenue does North Carolina get from Cherokee? Laws are meant for everyone, not a select few. FYI I don't gamble but I hate like h*** for certain people to be singled out. Just like smoking... you can't do it but you can drink yourself sloppy drunk and drive all over the place. People who eat lunch in bars/restaurants throw back beer and drinks every day and go back to work. Don't believe it? Do an alcohol/drug test on your employees when they come back from lunch. What do you think all these cars sitting at bars all day are doing? They ain't in there playing bridge, I can assure you. The law is the law is the law. For EVERYONE, EQUALLY!!!

This state is sooooooo far behind the times, wether they like it or not gambling has always been hete and will never go away. Hell the state is the biggest bookie in the state, wake the hell up already
