Gambling-The Dream of America

[ English ]

Is not that what gambling is all about. You’re always hopeful that you can receive one thing for absolutely nothing, or at the very least incredibly little. Don’t you remember what your mom told you? You cannot have one thing for nothing. That is what my mother told me, and I’ve discovered out since then that she was totally right. I believe Wilson Mizner said it greatest, when he stated, "Gambling: The sure way of acquiring practically nothing for something." Truly, at the end of the day, that is it…..correct?

In the great state of Montana they have these fantastic small products, known as keno machines. These keno devices are everywhere, and the places that these equipments reside are referred to as "gambling houses". I put gambling houses is quotes because they are not casinos like you imagine of gambling dens. You can find no table game or slot machine equipments, just video poker and keno machines. In any case, I managed to get myself roped in to the dream of succeeding a couple hundred bucks in a sitting. The next factor I knew I was going back to these devices almost daily. After a couple of months of this I recognized that no one actually wins. Oh sure, you may win fifty dollars here and there, but over span of time your just feeding the machines 5 dollar bills like they were candy.

I managed to check myself and I don’t even go into the "betting houses" any more. I’ve met folks who honestly almost lost everything they have betting the ridiculous keno machines. The factor that gets me about this kind of gambling could be the fact that gambling dens will advertise about the radio that they have an eighty-five per cent payback rate. This is the rate because it’s mandated by law. A eighty-five percent payback rate sounds fantastic, but whenever you think about it this basically means that in case you put one dollar into the equipments it gives 85 pennies 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 is my target with this article. To acquire you to realize that you just genuinely can’t win, no matter what other folks tell you. As Doc Holiday said in Tombstone, "The odds are all about the casino." That and only that could be the only reason there’s even a place on this planet referred to as Sin City. Because the odds are all for the house.
