I hate the pokers, I find them as interesting as watching grass grow (or a game of cricket). However when our family goes out for birthday dinners we usually go to the RSL and most of the family like to have a harmless little flutter afterwards.
You really don't need too.
You just put a coin or 2-3-4 into the machine, pull the handle....and it will tell you if you win.
99% of the time it will take your money.
If you do win, your very very lucky!
They are a real problem for people who can't stop playing them.
It is a mindless waste of time AND money. I just don't see the attraction. First and foremost as I work extremely hard to earn a living the thought of tossing coins into a slot machine is something I can't fathom. The only time I gamble is on the Melbourne Cup and even then I don't bother.
I lost about US$10 IN Vegas, in 1989. I used to play them, if I was out with a friend for lunch in a club, when they were only 10 cents a hit. When they went up to $1.00, I never played them again!
On 11 cruises, I’ve only wasted $1.00 on them, as 1 walks through the casino, most days, to get from ‘A to B’
No way!! And I do not understand the fascination with them or how people get hooked on them thay are so boring! At least the old fashioned ones slot machines with the leavers - which are still in Vegas - are a little more exciting. But even when you win on the pokies it isnt even like you win, Probably isnt like you lose either which is why people just sit there and keep pressing buttons. Insanity!!
