Mike's was the rotating resturant casino I thought. The riverboat was owned by Chris but I thought Mike wanted to start his own. Andy wanted it to entertain the alien troops so I would think Paula was on board with it but it was going to cost billions which I don't think Paula quite had.
She's definitely one of the few to have the cash to do it. Which one is "Mike's casino" anyway - riverboat or Andy's proposed casino at the restaurant? He's associated with both.
Nevermind. I solved the mystery. Evan was taking payoffs to stop Mike from starting a casino. That must be Andy's casino since the riverboat was already functional.
Andy also asked Paula to help fund the new casino since Evan wasn't responding to her funding request. So why would Paula consider helping out with the new casino if she was also paying Evan to prevent it from being built? (Plus she isn't quite a billionaire, right?)
Why do we assume Evan was being paid off with money? I mean evan was a billionaire, it would take a lot of money to bribe him not to start a casino.
I have to assume evan and mike were close to start with, so why wouldn't evan help his heir with money to start a casino. Evan probably would make more money on a casino than the pay-off to not start one and he would be helping a friend.
Then when evan refused mike, they had a falling out and evan changed his will.
Also, Something totally changed evan's behavior: he was going straight, freaked out about liberal media and changing his will to the hospital. What did this? The virus? Finding out about aliens? Or something unrelated like his plot to kill us all.
Andy wanted Mike to be her partner in starting the rotating restaurant casino... Paula paid Evan to prevent this from happening. Andy wanted Son to be a performer at said casino.
Paula had more interest in the Pollyanna casino since that's where she won all her money.
But weren't we told that the competing casinos were not the motive?
Given Farrell's analysis above, it seems very unlikely that Paula would or could be paying Evan off. The competing casinos aren't relevant but I'm trying to get some answers that could lead to relevant info.

I don't know anythng about paying Evan off...only that he fixed the fight that allowed me to realize a "huge profit."
I also wasn't trying to stop any opening of a casino....seriously, as a gambler, I would enjoy having more places to win! At least I wasn't given that info....perhaps it was revealed to another passsenger?
With lack of a clear motive or a good ID on the murder weapon, I've been trying to "get" into Evan's head....I know, not an easy task! Would he write the murder as a straightforward, right-in-front-of-our-eyes plot, or, would it be a winding, twisting, tale that somehow incorporated all/several of our backstories?
I find it hard to believe that all these smaller details have much meaning, but if someone comes up with a theory, I'm all ears!
Maybe the original clue didn't name Paula but said it was someone very wealthy and I thought it was referring to Paula.
Actually, no, it didn't say it was someone wealthy. It was a clue in Erik's backstory (quoted on page 2 of "Sharing is Caring") which said that he observed Evan accepting a payout from someone who wanted to stop Mike. Nothing about the wealth or lack thereof. Nor about what kind of "payment" was made (though I believe it is safe to presume that it was monetary).
Buzzfly: I dont even know what you are talking about.

Mike Lenin: It comes across as contrived that you don't know the plight of Annie. You're playing coy

Mike Lenin: you posted in the mildville gazette forum right before posting this shoutbox. I can't believe that you would make this comment AFTER reading the Gazette. Please. It's normal behavior economics to read the Gazette then post. This makes you suspect.

Buzzfly: Ya whatever. As I said vote how you want, nothing is going to change how you think. Frankly, its getting to be a waste of time.

Mike Lenin: And yeah, I'm open minded to new ideas when they fit. Earlier I had shouted at you that I'm willing to accept that you could be a hero

Buzzfly: Well that I can drink too
May 11, 2020 20:24:41 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: And yeah, for the record, tl;dr you accused me of playing the game, and to boot, to that, correctly, in identifying you as a villain. So despite it being clear that we are playing for different teams, I'm still down to share a drink with you

Buzzfly: Take another drink, you will need it when you find out youre wrong
