    So anywho, while I realize this could sort of be a land based casino post, I decided to post this here because of the content.

    So I went down to my favorite land based casino this weekend. I had a blast, got 2 free rooms, for 2 nights on both rooms. Got comped into the snack bar, buffet, and even there nice little cafe.

    I ended up sticking to my budget with a vengeance mainly because the machines nor the tables were rolling my way. Yet trying some of the newer games such as the Great and Powerful Zeus and Willy Wonka was a blast.

    So any who I brought along a co-worker who I think I have come the conclusion that they have a serious gambling problem, and might even be rather delusional.

    They think they have the power to stop the reels on the winning symbols everytime. Heck he even had his wife convinced that he had that power.
    Now correct me if I'm wrong, that no machine I have ever seen in the world. Can be stopped on a winning symbol, mainly for the fact that the result was already per-determined before the spin. Yet if that idea was true, casinos wouldn't have any business.

    Plus in my opinion, he walked into the casino with apparently his rent, bill, and food money hoping to win big. Never really betting within his budget range (not that he one apparently, but still). I even told him a few times to lower his bet mainly because it was apparent he wasn't winning. Otherwise he was going to go broke. Sure enough he did. Then I had to foot his food and gas bill for our ride home. (Not fun times if you ask me)

    So I guess moral of the story, is don't bring someone along gambling who already has demonstrated there poor with money management. Otherwise you'll end up footing a lot more than you wanted to.

    Anyone else have this happen with them with a friend, co-worker or what not?
    Plus part of me really wants to get him a referral into a gambling treatment program. This was a horrible, horrible experience to see this happen to someone.
