    WOW!!!

    So now Keno, Lotteries, Ubet and TAB all owned by the same merger.. Suprised this was allowde to go ahead.

    TABCORP own:
    Luxbet
    TAB
    Keno
    Sky Racing 1/2/Thoroughbred

    TATTS GROUP own:
    Tatt's Lottery / Golden Casket / NSW Lotteries
    UBet

    On another note I never realised that earlier this year Tabcorp was fined A$45 million for breaching money-laundering laws. Suspicious behaviour on 108 occasions was not reported to the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC).

    Need I say more!

    They also own the Casino - that brings them extra cash as well. Biggest evil corporation in our country!

    I asked a jockey who used to race at Hawkesbury (don't know if he still does?) if horse racing is rigged?
    He didn't give me an exact yes or no answer but he did say if they ever have a big meet, where the bookmakers think there will be lots of money in the pool, they will try to race what they think will be the favourite right next to the barrier and a stablemate on the outside, usually 2nd 3rd favourite to block it on the rails. Then if what they think will be the favourite gets drawn on the barrier race day it's a good chance the bookies are going to rake in.

    The moral of the story is that gambling is set up to take money off all but the luckiest of people.

    A mate of mine claimed his partner was ahead in all her years playing the pokies because she had a system.

    I gave up after a coupe of attempts to tell him that was a load of shit.

    Sounds like her system was probably lying to your mate about how much money she put through the pokies.
