A slot machine by any other name...

Did you see this morning's San Francisco Chronicle? Governor Schwarzenegger and a major Indian tribe are haggling over the definition of slot machine. And though the technical, legal aspects may be sleep-inducing, at first glance, the fact is that depending on who wins the argument, the tribes may get a free ride to install as many gambling machines as they like, and make an end-run around lawful state limits.

Here's an excerpt from the article:

>SNIP<

Should video lottery terminals be determined as legally distinct from slots, other gaming tribes -- most of which have compacts that run through 2019 and have so far declined to negotiate with Schwarzenegger -- would gain a clear path to limitless expansion without sharing their profits or submitting to increased state demands.

Essentially, that could mean tribes would gain the same benefits promised by Proposition 70 but without having to pay a cent to the state's general fund -- and leave them little incentive to negotiate with Schwarzenegger.
