Editors note HowlingMadMika

Welcome to issue number 22 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

Let me start by wishing every one of our readers a happy Easter. I hope you and your family enjoy it.

The reduction of thirty to fifteen crews really seems to be resulting in more action as three more crews were wiped and one additional crew was attacked. The Untouchables turned out not to be as untouchable as the name might suggest as the crew was wiped by kika, the Pennsylvania State Don. The Gambino Family was also wiped this week, supposedly for having an Averice member and the Averice Bullet Factory in the crew. Last but not least, The Gamblers went down as well.

Event Horizon was attacked, however the losses were minor and the crew is still on the statistics where it remains to look strong with not one but two State Dons. Who knows, the crew may start to equal Ombra Di Lucifer for as far as high ranks are concerned.

This issue also features an article on a change you could have hardly missed, if only because of the BootMail we all received regarding gambling chips. The roulette page received a massive update, and not only physically speaking. A new cashier has been introduced and roulette owners can exercise a greater amount of control over their casino. In addition they also have a better idea of who is gambling and how those players are doing, profit wise.

With additional tools for the owners and the promise that the chips system will be introduced in other casino types players have been beginning to explore the options and suggestions for improvements also began to show up. All suggestions for improvements of the feature are of course appreciated. Feel free to create a Feature Suggestion Help Desk ticket if you have one!

The issue of this week also features the 'Buzz Sound Off' that focuses on the crime payouts, a 'Bootleggers Comic' made by Nyxxie and of course the normal weekly segments 'Behind the Name', 'Bootleggers Game Statistics', and 'The Weekly Flash'. Furthermore, if you would like to be picked for 'Behind the Name' then please copy the form from the segment in the previous issue (issue #21) and follow the instructions in the article.

Rien Ne Va Plus HowlingMadMika

On April fourth, the Roulette feature received a massive overhaul, including a new physical layout, an animation of the spinning wheel, more options to gamble by the introduction of for instance Corner and Split, and the new Cashier page which requires players to purchase chips before they can place any bets on a Roulette. BSF2000 stated that the cashier would become more useful in the future.
