The best part about this and related cases (Colusa and Rincon) is this comment from the news (via Pechanaga):

Last week, the Rincon Indian band won a lawsuit in which a second San Diego judge ruled the number of slots allowed statewide under the 1999 deal should be nearly 56,000.

The confusion stems from the fact that the cap number was expressed through a formula open to interpretation.

The actual number of slots in the state is much higher, over 60,000, because some tribes have made new deals for more machines.
