Texas Gambling News Brief

Gaming company poised to make millions on 8-liners in Texas

Austin American-Statesman,  Thursday, February 21, 2008 at 6:46:24 PM

In November 2006, Aces Wired, a young company controlled by an Austin businessman with long ties to the gambling industry, opened an eight-liner gambling parlor on Interstate 40 outside of Amarillo and began advertising on billboards. Three months ago, Potter County declared the site an illegal gambling operation and ordered it closed.

At first glance, the case, which has not yet come to trial, is of small consequence. But not to Aces Wired, which is counting on a favorable ruling to spread its gambling machines across the state.

Eight-liners, which look and play like slot machines, are legal only when played for amusement. Many small-time operators frequently offer cash prizes, however, provoking a game of cat-and-mouse with local law enforcement. Often a parlor is raided and closed, only to reopen days later in the same location. the source

Gambling Factoid #6:
While playing cards are believed to have originated in China, the present-day 52-card deck of four suits—spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs—with 13 cards per suit comes from 15th century France.
