I can only reiterate, your sad arse poor people need to gamble to make an honest days living.
I indicated to Household Chef that he have a night off cooking and we would go to the pub, The Elsternwick. He gratefully accepted the offer. We scrutinised the menu to find cheap meals and as usual I chose the Senior's sirloin steak with pepper sauce, salad and chips for $18. R had the Senior's chicken schnitzel for the same price.
Pre dinner I think R had lost $10 at the pokie machines and I had lost $5. After dinner I gave
R my gambling ticket with a $15 credit as I was bored with gambling and told him to take it down to $10 or if he got it up to $30, take the money. My motto is double or nothing.
I sat outside for a while and then re-entered. R's machine was doing something. He told me to click things on the screen that came up. It's your money, as he said. I went to click on the screen in an instinctive place and then changed. Each time the selection came up, I did the same, that is not click where my first instinct went. Some scrolling display began spinning upwards to about $950. I said to R, that is some kind of jackpot we could win. He replied, I am speechless.
We had won $950. Divided that is $475 each for fifteen or so minute's labour. That has more than covered any of my previous gambling losses.
If you are a poor poverty stricken pensioner, you really need to step up and not be such a burden on society and invest your pension money into these gambling machines to become wealthy and not need a pension. We play rarely but if you did so daily, I reckon you could become a millionaire. But the too lazy to gamble poor will always be with us.
