Gambling-The American Dream

August 4th, 2010 by Keon Leave a reply »

Is not that what wagering is all about. You are usually hopeful which you can get a thing for practically nothing, or at the very least extremely little. Don’t you keep in mind what your mother told you? You cannot get anything for nothing. That is what my mother told me, and I have discovered out since then that she was absolutely right. I feel Wilson Mizner said it ideal, when he said, "Gambling: The certain way of getting nothing for something." Truly, at the end of the day, that’s it…..right?

In the excellent state of Montana they’ve these wonderful little equipments, known as keno machines. These keno products are everywhere, and the places that these equipment reside are called "gambling houses". I put gambling houses is quotes because they aren’t gambling establishments like you imagine of gambling houses. You can find no table casino game or slot equipment, just video poker and keno machines. In any case, I managed to get myself roped in to the dream of succeeding a couple hundred dollars in a sitting. The next thing I knew I was going back to these equipments almost daily. After a few months of this I recognized that no one actually wins. Oh certain, you may win fifty dollars here and there, but over the a period of time your just feeding the equipment five dollar bills like they were candy.

I managed to check myself and I do not even go into the "gambling houses" any more. I’ve met individuals who truthfully almost lost everything they have playing the ridiculous keno machines. The point that gets me about this type of wagering will be the fact that gambling houses will advertise within the radio that they have an eighty-five % payback rate. This may be the rate because it’s mandated by law. A eighty-five percent payback rate sounds great, except whenever you imagine about it this simply means that in the event you place $1 into the products it gives eighty five cents back . That is how it works. Just imagine of it as a reverse ATM. When I started thinking of gambling in these terms, I stopped.

I suppose that’s my aim with this article. To get you to realize that you just actually can’t win, no matter what other persons tell you. As Doc Holiday mentioned in Tombstone, "The odds are all on the house." That and only that would be the only reason there’s even a place on this planet named Vegas. Because the odds are all for the casino.
