Does it really come as a surprise that state-run video poker sales are starting to dive? The games are completely rigged. All of the games are a simple mathematics program designed to create an exact return on investment for the state and the retailer. The younger generation that grew up on computers gets it and the older generation of players is dying off. Common sense dictates sales will continue to drop and there is no way to tweak it or make adjustments to the games to stop the bleeding and return the profits to where they once were.
