Quoted from Matesamo:
I was listening to a podcast and they had a guest who was familiar with the situation at Gottlieb at the time (for the life of me I cannot remember who it was or what podcast, sorry) and the guest mentioned a heavy investment in some sort of Keno venture that was never took off due to the tight grip on the industry by the manufacturers. I had never heard that before and would like to see if a second source had any info on it.
I think it was a TOPcast episode, either the interview with Trudeau or the interview with Norris.
I had an episode, devoid of any guests (just me and Tony), where I talked about my research on street level games. Segment starts here: https://soundcloud.com/user-465086826/episode-47#t=23:18
My show notes have all my sourcing, and I note those two TOPcast episodes. I bring it up because later in the discussion (at this point: https://soundcloud.com/user-465086826/episode-47#t=54:35) I discuss the burden gaming had on Premier (to counter the myth that street level was responsible for Gottlieb's late-90s woes).
Though reading the additional comments here from pinballguru I need to note an error I made in the audio; I assumed the license issues were licensed THEMES, not actual gaming licenses. So, FYI about that.
This was before I wrote the article on the street level series for Pinball News, hence why the Show Notes were so detailed. But, if you want to learn more, there may be some more elements in the links (if you scroll down at Soundcloud you should be able to access those notes and hyperlinks).
No mention of this specific game, however (far too late given my focus was 1990-1).
