In summary, the conversation discusses an alternate career path in the gambling industry, specifically in Hungary. The speaker saw an article in a newspaper and thinks it is a smart move for the industry. There is some skepticism about the legitimacy of the story and whether or not the use of a mechanical device in a casino would be acceptable and result in a payout.

Are you sure, sure that this story is genuine? Does it really sound like that? Why has it not been appearing everywhere?

Do you really believe that the use of a mechanical and technical device would be acceptable, and the casino would really pay off?
