I was web-meandering the other day when I stumbled on a story about nefarious dealings at a senior centre in Idaho. It made me smile and do an inadvertent air-punch, so I thought I’d share it with you!
About a year ago, Idaho police got a tip-off that there was illegal activity happening at the Twin Falls Senior Center. A group of pensioners met regularly to play poker, with a $20 buy-in. We all know poker’s much more fun when you can win actual money, but unfortunately cash gambling’s illegal in Idaho. The police raided the joint of iniquity and found around twenty pensioners indulging in the illegal activity.
The old folk were blissfully unaware that they had been breaking any laws, but have since started playing without putting any cash on the table. Doris Williams, who was 88 years old at the time, told the Times-News newspaper that their group of players has been toeing the line and playing without money since the raid, “but it isn’t as much fun.”
In honour of the gambling grannies, here’s a slot game for you to play – just for the fun of it! Of course, you can also register an account at Vegas Palms Online Casino and play for actual money. Have fun!
