Meister Mail: Main Street Arbitrary Payouts

Word from the Meister – 2 November 2018

Well, Halloween passed by and yes, I finished the series “The Haunting of Hill House” on Netflix – what a mindblower. Really an awesome series which is well worth the 10 hours invested in being glued to one’s TV screen. Two thumbs up from me…and now it’s back to work.

Lots going on at Casinomeister: Mainstreet casinos, which have been around for donkey years, are now listed in the Casino Warnings section. That sucks. There’s also some interesting news coming out of the UK like a tax hike for online casinos – it’s like the UK wants online casinos to fail. All this and more, just scroll on down.

Absolutely yours,
