Gambling-The American Dream


Is not that what gambling is all about. You are constantly hopeful that you can obtain some thing for practically nothing, or at least very little. Don’t you remember what your mother told you? You cannot have anything for nothing. That’s what my mom told me, and I’ve discovered out since then that she was absolutely right. I think Wilson Mizner said it ideal, when he stated, "Gambling: The sure way of obtaining absolutely nothing for something." Actually, at the end of the day, that is it…..right?

In the excellent state of Montana they’ve these great tiny devices, known as keno machines. These keno equipment are everywhere, and the places that these equipments reside are referred to as "gambling houses". I place gambling establishments is quotes because they are not gambling establishments like you feel of casinos. You will discover no table game or slot machine products, just video poker and keno machines. In any case, I managed to get myself roped in to the dream of winning a few hundred bucks in a sitting. The next factor I knew I was heading back to these devices pretty much daily. After a couple of months of this I realized that no one actually wins. Oh sure, you might win fifty dollars here and there, but over span of time your just feeding the devices five dollar bills like they were candy.

I was able to check myself and I do not even go into the "gambling houses" any more. I have met men and women who honestly pretty much lost everything they’ve betting the ridiculous keno machines. The thing that gets me about this type of betting could be the fact that gambling establishments will advertise within the radio that they’ve an eighty-five per cent payback rate. This is the rate because it’s mandated by law. A eighty five % payback rate sounds fantastic, but whenever you consider about it this merely means that if you put 1 dollar into the equipment it gives 85 cents back . That is how it works. Just imagine of it as a reverse ATM. When I started thinking of betting in these terms, I stopped.

I suppose that’s my goal with this article. To get you to realize that you simply actually can’t win, no matter what other men and women tell you. As Doc Holiday stated in Tombstone, "The odds are all on the casino." That and only that would be the only reason there is even a place on this planet known as Vegas. Because the odds are all about the casino.
