Slot Machines

No Armed Bandits

When I walk from my room in the Luxor to get to the Mandalay Bay convention center I have to walk by about a thousand slot machines.

When I see a slot machine there are only two emotions I ever experience; Fear and Relief.

I’m always afraid of loosing money in those things, and if I don’t loose money I’m relieved.

I don’t get the passion or the elation I see some people expressing with these things.

It doesn’t matter if I win or not; it doesn’t matter how much I win, the feeling is always one of relief, never joy, never excitement, never elation, just relief.

Like going to the dentist for a filling and finding out you don’t need a root canal, just a filling.  No joy, just relief.
