Maybe your casino has rigged the machines, since the tourists don't stick around long enough to keep records.  They either could have reduced total payouts or else reduced the number and amount of small payouts in favor of a few more BIG wins - since that would likely start a stampede of players (who don't understand the long term odds) seeing how fast they could feed money into the machines.  Either way, the casino wins more and unless you hit a big jackpot, you win less. kkkkkkkkkk

EL, I used to play one type of poker machine at $3 a spin, but that was over 10yrs ago. I just had a quick check and I had at least four big wins in the 20 and 30 thousand dollars each. The "Den" had a magazine and with one's permission, photos were taken of the big winners. Big cardboard cheques were written and the winner would hold one for the photo. I noticed that things started to change, possibly because of the influx of overseas gamblers and the increase in numbers of the local and interstate gamblers. This was not only on the poker machines, but also at the gaming tables. I decided then that I would only play for fun, hence my only playing one and two cent poker machines at 50cents or one dollar a go. Some of the table games have minimum bets of $200 or more aoaoaoaoao I have told you who usually plays these tables. bjbjbjbjbj

A government institute gave China’s biggest celebrity a low 'social responsibility’ rating. She hasn’t been seen for months.

Fan Bingbing is one of China’s biggest celebrities, a ubiquitous actress, model and singer who earned more in 2016 than Hollywood A-listers such as Amy Adams and Charlize Theron, according to Forbes.

But in July, the “X-Men” actress suddenly vanished. And in the weeks since, the mystery surrounding her disappearance from public view has only deepened amid speculation that she ran afoul of Chinese authorities.

The latest clue emerged Tuesday after a state-affiliated think tank and Beijing university ranked Fan dead last in their annual “Social Responsibility Report” — she earned a 0 out of 100 — citing her “negative social impact,” among other things....

French police probe Interpol president Meng Hongwei's disappearance

The Chinese president of Interpol, the international police agency, has vanished.

Meng Hongwei was not on French soil when he was last seen, according a senior French law enforcement official, who declined to say whether he was in China.

Meng's wife went to police in Lyon, where Interpol is based, Thursday night to report his disappearance, according to a statement released by the French Interior Ministry on Friday. The spouse told police that she had last heard from him 10 days ago and had recently received threats via social networks and by telephone, according to the statement....
