Re: How addictive are the slots??
My Girlfriends parents are really in to the pokies. They play almost every day. Her old man will generally play after he's finished work, sometimes they win but when he keeps losing he just pumps the money in.
The other trap is, if you put $50 in, play until you've got $5 left, then win $55, you walk away with $60 but didn't win $60, only $10 was gained.
I find the pokies really boring and unentertaining.
Apart from the fact that I don't have a lot of money to throw around, I don't get any enjoyment out of sitting and pushing a button over and over again.
I don't have a problem with putting a few dollars in every now and then but I couldn't be so enthralled and entertained by it and sit in front of a machine for hours on end like some do.
Like you said, if I put a couple of dollars in and won a little, I'd be perfectly happy walking away with my 10 bucks!
