he slots games, including "African Diamond" and "Crazy Money," don't pay out any money "or anything else that has independent marketable value," according to the terms and conditions page. But users can buy credits to keep playing once they run out of free ones.
TEN owner Glenn Straub said Monday that he wasn’t aware the casino computer game was live, but said the managers there did run the concept by him.
“They ran that by us. It wasn’t gambling so it didn’t offend anybody,” he said.
As for opening the real casino with actual gambling, Straub is still battling state regulators over whether he needs a gaming license. The state Casino Control Commission ruled he does, despite leasing casino operations to a third party.
Straub has vowed to challenge the ruling in court.
“I’m not going to be getting involved with the casinos,” he said Monday morning. “They’re leased out, and that’s what this whole extra year we spent in getting the state to recognize the statute that’s on the books.”
