Thoughts about casnios

I'm pretty sure that I don't need to write a whole introduction about what a casino is. I'm fairly confident that it's common knowledge as to what goes on in a casino, and why people go there. With that being said, casinos are not a bad place.

Unless you go only in hopes of looking like this guy.
Casinos are not a bad place, if you go just for fun. If you feel like you've got some extra money to burn, why not go to the casino and have some fun? Try out your luck? You might win, but you probably won't. It's that slight chance of winning that makes it so fun! It's the times that you go in hopes of "winning big" that make it a bad place.

I'll bet on blue!
Now every time I go to the casino, I have a set plan. I've got 200 bucks in my pocket, and I'm probably going to be going home with nothing. That's it. I know there's a slight possibility that I may win more, but its pretty unlikely, and I'm just playing for fun. Most people however, go with the sole intention of winning, which is wrong. Every time I go to the casino, as I'm walking around, I look at all the people there, and just can't help but feel sorry for most of them. I'm sure those that have been to the casino before, have seen people playing one two, maybe three slot machines at the same time. I once sat down at a machine, for literally 5 minutes, and played for 20$, while the person next to me managed to already spend 300$ in that short time frame.

WHY AM I NOT WINNING ANYTHING?!?!?!
There's one little fact that most people forget about casinos... A casino is a business. The owner of the casino hopes to MAKE money, not lose it! And guess how they're making money? By taking it from the fools who think they'll become rich enough to open their own casino. It wouldn't be a very good business model if the owner lost more than they made.

In conclusion, I think the casino is a pretty fun place to go if you just want to have a fun night out with your friends, but don't go expecting to come home a millionaire, because well... You won't.

  12. As long as people understand that it costs money, and almost never makes money, then they're fine. At the moment, they seem to mainly exist so that people who don't get math can be taken advantage of.

  13. Personally, I dont see how you could have a good time knowing you'll loose your money. Unless you really enjoy the game/thrill. The knowledge that Ill probably loose all of it would be enough for me to spend the money on something else, even if I did enjoy it.

    But thank god for the professionals, am I right? Those who can just walk in with say 1000 grand and step out with 2000. Who knows how many casinos we'd have all around us if it wasnt for them.

    But it is a smart business. The slot machines you were talking about for example, who in their right mind would try to make a profit from those?

    Yet, we see plenty of housewives and whatnot sitting there with their crazyeyes hoping for some kind of life changing moment. And they are the ones keeping the casinos alive, the average dumbdumbs & addicts.

  27. Whenever I buy a lottery ticket I'm usually like "I've been a good and nice person. My karma is positive. I helped out a guy whose car broke down the other day. I'm sure to win because God/fortune is smiling upon me." but then I always lose and it's a bitter reminder that there isn't any fortune smiling upon me at all. In fact, I never win anything.

    And you know what, sometimes the 2 dollars is worth remembering that.

    Free lunch. No such thing.

  31. I completely agree with you. It's easy to become addicted once you have won money. The sad thing is even when people come out ahead they will blow it all again because they think they will win more.
