    • "She was able to make huge sums of money because she noticed non-random behavior in the slot machines only by working there for several years" doesn't exactly increase my confidence in the legitimacy of the world of gambling.

        I’ve had the same thoughts over the past few days. At this point, I don’t much care because the extent of my gambling is tossing in $20 to the lottery when the jackpots get huge - renting a dream for a day or two.

          I don't play slots, but I think I understand what is going on.

          Experienced slot players understand that by looking at the progressive numbers that are usually blinking at the tops of the machines, you can see which machine has paid out the jackpots most recently, and which machines currently have higher jackpots. It is also readily known by regular slot players (not me) which machines have more favorable betting odds because of the number of "lines" you can bet.

          However, I don't believe you can make a living off of your slot winnings. You might get a jackpot of $30,000, and thus you'll get a Form 1099 from the casino for your winnings (which you'll have to pay taxes on) but slots, even if optimally played, still have a considerable house advantage.

          If you read the professional slots threads or sites that are out there, you will see that professional players essentially earn their "living" playing slots by living off of the comps given by the casinos due to their volume of play. Free rooms, food, transportation, etc...
          That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

            Is it just a tax on people bad at math?
            One thing that sports betting can do is turn the unwatchable into the watchable.

            For instance, last week I placed just one bet on the conference championship games. I bet an alternative line in the Philly-SF game. I bet that Philly would win the game by at least 9.5 points, as opposed to the slim margin by which Philly was favored.

            Thus, by early in the third quarter, when the game became unwatchable for most football fans, I still had a keen interest in the play.

            If you want to see what it's like, I suggest you find a sportsbook before the Super Bowl and put a handful of $5 prop bets down. For instance, you can bet whether the first touchdown is scored by a player wearing the number 13 or lower, or a number 14 or higher. Good times.

              I've also seen it published in different guide books and the like that slots in high traffic areas (near main entrances, washrooms, other attractions, etc.) tend to be fairly loose (albeit via smaller payouts) to constantly show passer-by's that people are "winning" and maybe get them to step in and donate a few bucks when they otherwise wouldn't.

                • Decided to tune into the new Pro Bowl to see what flag football would look like. First reaction isn’t anything about the product on the field, it’s that it looks like they got at least 45k people to show up for this. Allegiant stadium looks packed minus the very tops and corners of the upper deck.
