It sounds crooked, but the meaning is probably that while a play that wins the jackpot is paid, an idle machine can be retired without any liability to pay its "jackpot" having accrued on the books.
in the recent 10-Q is this eye-opener:
"The Company does not accrue a jackpot liability for its slot machine base and progressive jackpots (“jackpots”) because the Company can avoid payment of such amounts, as regulations do not prohibit removal of gaming machines from the gaming floor without payment of the jackpots."
Dear Weak-Hand Seller at $1.65:
pj is going to show lucky 777 at the end of the size at $1.62. You are getting sleepy, sell at market .... zzzzzzz
I'm thinking of switching my crystal ball polish brand .... which do you use?
"stop loss" order: just say no to an order in which you want to sell, but only if you can get a lower price in doing so
I think the Pulitzer refi WAS a big deal both for its own $$ sake and as a signal as to the likelihood of bankruptcy at the Dec 2015 refinancing, so big a deal that i am paying (through the nose, if you must know) to add as it falls today!
I would venture the guess that HTCH purchases at $6 even three years ago will show a decent ROI when examined in a year or two.
Wild price swings shortly before an earnings release make my antennae twitch! I feel bound to respond with sales just in case it's honest misplaced overenthusiasm driving the price up in anticipation of unexpectedly good results but also inclined, being mildly suspicious of trading with those who "know more", to hold back on sale sizes.
have added some at $1.75 over the course of today's session and would lighten up some at $1.78
Merely observe that the bid as I type this $5.85, more than yesterday's closing price. Do not concern yourself with the spread very much.
I am willing to let it run essentially "forever" as my position could not ever remotely approach a value that would require me to consider selling for diversification.
