Gambling-The American Dream

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

Is not that what betting is all about. You are often hopeful that you simply can receive some thing for nothing, or at the very least quite little. Do you not keep in mind what your mother advised you? You can not receive one thing for nothing. That is what my mother told me, and I’ve found out since then that she was absolutely right. I think Wilson Mizner mentioned it best, when he mentioned, "Gambling: The certain way of getting absolutely nothing for something." Actually, at the end of the day, that’s it…..correct?

In the excellent state of Montana they have these fantastic small equipment, known as keno machines. These keno products are everywhere, and the places that these machines reside are known as "betting houses". I put gambling dens is quotes because they are not casinos like you believe of gambling houses. You’ll find no table game or slot equipments, just video slot machines poker and keno machines. In any case, I managed to get myself roped in to the dream of winning a couple hundred dollars in a sitting. The next thing I knew I was going back to these devices practically daily. After a few months of this I realized that no one truly wins. Oh sure, you might win $50 here and there, but over the a period of time your just feeding the products five dollar bills like they were candy.

I was able to look at myself and I do not even go into the "gambling establishments" any more. I’ve met folks who seriously virtually lost everything they’ve playing the stupid keno machines. The issue that gets me about this kind of wagering could be the fact that betting houses will advertise for the radio that they’ve an 85 percent payback rate. This will be the rate because it is mandated by law. A eighty five % payback rate sounds fantastic, but whenever you think about it this basically means that in the event you put $1 into the equipments it gives eighty-five pennies back . This really is how it works. Just consider of it as a reverse ATM. When I started thinking of wagering in these terms, I stopped.

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