What is it about this fish game? It's right up there with UK drug dealers using 3-series BMWs as the vehicle of choice.

Punter: Hey man.
Dealer: Hey.
Punter: Say, you got a nice fish game.
Dealer: Yeah, she's sweet.
Punter: Any chance of a closer look, and perhaps a quick score?
Dealer: My man, let me see what I've got in the trunk ..

I really don't know. I have always been baffled by it. I guess meth-heads are keen on flashing lights, repetitive actions and the idea of getting more "free" money from gambling (besides the fact they are losing big-time). I saw a fish game a few months ago in a fancy gaming center in the city center ( a Chinese business that went bust in less than 3 months), and noticed how this one could also run a completely different game that looked like a huge green baize poker table. I've never been into gambling but I'm into gaming so maybe I'll check out one of these dens and see if I can beat the tweakers. Probably not though! :?

Someone who knows what they are doing could.

Probably not.

I dont think its illegal to have the mcahines. You can even find them in The game area in aeon mall.

The problem is when you let people convert a win out for real money.

For those who wont understand The fish game thing you simply pay for in game Credit, say 1 dollar 1k in game. If you then win and have 5k you get 5 dollar out. Its a child game that is used for gamling.

Even in The casinos you can play this child game this way for real money.
