How ’bout a game of burro? Fred Carrier, a Stateline, Nevada accountant, developed a gambling game with this name, the concept for which came to him in a nightmare.
Based on magnetism, it featured a plastic burro that rotated in the middle of an octagonal table. The player had a choice of betting on which part of the animal ended up facing him/her or on any one, two or four of eight colors.
I’m guessing state gaming regulators didn’t approve the game, but does anyone know for sure?
