That's why I never play any of those 'races' at any casino.
They're all run in-house. So who's there to check everything's done properly.
It's the same with prize draws. who adjudicates them?
how do we know all the participants are included in the draw?
How do we know it's done randomly?
How do we know the draw even takes place?
I could not agree with you more. I was going to post and say exactly the same thing. Yes I know this was an oldish post now. But just wanted to say I agree with what you said.
