Read the laws of gambling, but thats not the point, the neighborhood was afraid of seeing many people going to the house, back and forth, they thought they were selling drugs, look like chineses hahahahahhhah! You must be one of them. Shut upppp! Hahahahhahaha open the doors mother fuckerssss! Or boommmmm!!!

  5. All this over people minding their own business… can the town or police or even the state tell me why gambling is illegal … like a good reason. What will happen to me if I enjoy a dice game with my friends. Will I bet the house and if so… so what, its mine.

    I understand in 1880s casinos where super, super corrupt… but that's no who is getting in trouble.
    Waste of police time and money, because all those people still gamble, all 26.
