Watch Your Money. Spend Your Time and Money Elsewhere

Member Rating 1 out of 5 by jackdunlop on July 9, 2009

I visited the casino almost daily over a 7 day period and lost more than $12,000 over that time and put myself in 10K debt with the bank. I played the 2 dollar and 5 dollar machines and they took took took. Obvioulsy I expected to win something but ouch! to my surpise! This was not to be. As a regular attender in the past, I have seen people loose thousands and thousands of dollars at the slots in a single day or over a period of time. I have met patrons who took lines of credits to fund the gambling addiction. I am yet to meet one successful gambler and I have been attending this place for 7 years. Most of the people are angry, very frustrated and broke. There are very few good cars in the parking lot. My advise is not to carry any cards with you if you must go, carry limited cash and try not to spend it. But my best advise is not to go in the first place. Take your spouse or kids or friends to an expensive dinner instead. You will spend far less and gain much more. I am not against the casino but i feel bad for myself and for others who loose so much money and time. I have vowed NOT to return and I will hold onto this promise to myself and my wife. May God help you if you go.
