A conference the first week of April has netted some interesting results for Washington State. Director Daveed Mossely, of the Washington State Ferries, had a conference at Swinomish Casino. According to Mossely he was drawn to slot machines by pure chance and is not an avid gambler. He recently said in a public address that new ideas make the USA great. Apparently his epiphany means that slot machines will be installed on Washington state ferries. The conference was to solidify the deal with the local Anacortes casino. They will be able to install slot machines by 2016. The machines will be available to riders who make a reservation. There is a special prize that will be included in 2016 called the golden ticket. With this ticket the lucky winner can ride on the ferries without any reservation, and at any time.
