Betting-The Dream of America

Isn’t that what betting is all about. You are often hopeful which you can obtain a thing for nothing, or at the very least very little. Do you not keep in mind what your mother advised you? You can not have anything for nothing. That’s what my mom told me, and I’ve found out since then that she was absolutely right. I feel Wilson Mizner stated it best, when he said, "Gambling: The sure way of acquiring absolutely nothing for something." Truly, at the end of the day, that is it…..right?

In the wonderful state of Montana they’ve these amazing small devices, known as keno machines. These keno products are everywhere, and the places that these equipments reside are named "gambling dens". I place betting houses is quotes because they aren’t gambling houses like you think of casinos. You will find no table game or slot products, just video poker and keno machines. In any case, I managed to obtain 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 products almost daily. After a few months of this I realized that no one genuinely wins. Oh sure, you may win 50 dollars here and there, except over span of time your just feeding the machines five dollar bills like they were candy.

I managed to look at myself and I don’t even go into the "gambling dens" any more. I have met persons who seriously almost lost everything they have wagering the ridiculous keno machines. The factor that gets me about this type of wagering may be the fact that betting houses will advertise about the radio that they’ve an eighty five % payback rate. This could be the rate because it’s mandated by law. A eighty five per cent payback rate sounds superb, except when you feel about it this basically means that should you put $1 into the machines it gives 85 pennies back . This is how it works. Just feel of it as a reverse ATM. When I started thinking of betting in these terms, I stopped.

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