Question
do they watch you in casinos and then rig the machines?it sure does seem like i.What do you think?

Answer
The machines cannot be "rigged." Every slot machine on every casino floor has passed rigorous testing to ensure it meets or exceeds all regulations. These regulations in any jurisdiction state that a slot machine's payout cannot be changed once installed on the floor. These payout percentages are set on a computer chip and changing this chip requires regulatory approval and oversight.
