    "each of the new machines features a simple design consisting of a plain gray outer casing with a side-mounted handle that, when pulled, immediately informs the player that he or she has lost the game by flashing the word “LOSER” on a screen" LMFAO!!!!

    "... table where players can simply dump their chips and leave."

    If this story is not tongue in cheek(?) THAT is amazing !!

    Sort of like the guy on the bridge that says "Honest, I just want the money for beer!" And everyone just smiles or nods.....I always just give him the beer!

    Seriously, will the success of such machines follow the path of the resort fees? Is their spread inevitable? Stay tuned!!

    If they ever come out with that blank craps table, I wanna be one of the first to try it. But I might tread lightly, initially I might start with $10 passline, double odds, and $52 or $54 across, depending on the point. You know, don't wanna press my luck!

    I'm soooo excited.......:poke::thumbsup:

    It's amazing how many people still don't know the onion is a satire news site.

    Then it IS true......wow....how can people be so silly? Might as well play Keno for the 250,000 $ 20 / 20..... Maybe they just need a sign.....

    Funny article!!!

    Though I do believe if such a machine existed, there indeed would be people who'd put a dollar in it for the "fun" of seeing the LOSER screen pop-up after pulling the handle... sadly... there'd also be a few who would "feed" it as well!

    It's only a matter of time before one of the VMB Einstein's post a mathematical formula based on pulls per hour or coin/in coin/out to determine that this is indeed correct.
