This my friends is just a stupid, fun, non-sensible post. It speaks of a couple of hours I wasted in today, 2 hours I will never get back, 2 hours that other than make me smile had no purpose. It’s also costing me another 2 hours to write about it, so I can share it with you. If you’re not about wasting any time today, smiling you can past this post right on by.
As many of you know I have 5 nebulized treatments per day, sometimes that could be as high as 7 depending on how rough a day I am having breathing. I really hate wasting my time nebulizing, so while time-consuming, nebulizing is important but just sitting with the mask on while the nebulizer does its’ thing can boring. So while I medicate, I generally read and respond to emails, chat with friends if they are online, or play stupid Facebook games. Over the years I have consumed a lot of time playing those stupid games.
Just to show you my level of involvement over the years I have been on Facebook I have been involved with Farmvile, FarmTown, ESPNVille, Hidden Items, Texas Hold Them, Candy Crush (Level 92), 3D Slots, Vegas Slots, that save the Pet game to name a few and concurrently I would be playing Hearts, Spades, or Double Deck Pinochle on Yahoo. But the games I am currently loyal too are; Words with Friends and Slotomania. If you are a person with little vocabulary skills you should consider challenging me, you will generally win. But today’s post is about how I did today playing Slotomania. Of course I will branch out and talk about other things but the jest of the post is that I won 87,000,000 points today playing Slotomania. I played two different slot machines; King of Gold, minimum pull 10 points, don’t have a clue what the maximum pull is I have yet to do it. Though when things go well I will bet, as much as, 100K per pull. Let me be 100 percent clear on this, I do not have single penny invested in the game, I have never bought extra chips, or additional pulls, I play with what the game gives me. Today I when I started my point total was a little over 500K, I started with King of Gold at 25,000 per pull. I got real lucky and ran my original 500K up to 4M. By the time I had run my winning up to 4M I was betting 50K per pull. It was one of those days. Once I got a little over 4M I changed games to Nashville Nights (it’s one of the “High Roller” games available) minimum bet 100,000 per pull. It was my intent to play 100K pulls until I lost back down to my starting point of which was 500K. Being honest at 100K per pull if you’re not lucky you can lose 3.5 Million quickly, I know I have done it often. But today wasn’t my normal day. Today was a lucky day.
I was hitting the button with great authority today, watching the wheels spin and spin, watching winner after winner fall into place, winning millions and millions on a single pull. I was the Zen Master of the Slotomania Game today. At one point I was up to 23 million point only to lose all by 3 million, then again to immediately push it back up to 17 million. Only again to lose down to 1 million. My goal was to at worse play until I reached the 500,000 that I started the day with. But every time I got close to that magic number I went on yet another winning streak, pushing my winning back into the millions and millions. Finally I just got bored with winning, so I stopped when I played back down to 15,500,000 my starting place plus 15 million, not bad for 2 hours work. All told over 87 million points passed thru my fingers today. It indeed was a good day.
Now that I have talked about how stupidly I gambled today, let me take a moment and talk about being a responsible gambler. The reason I could throw away so much is because it wasn’t real, it had no value, not a single bit of good came from it other than me smiling when I stopped. Gambling is very serious, when I was a kid I was taught one rule about gambling, never lost more than you can afford, and I can say with complete honesty I have never lost more than I could afford. PERIOD. NEVER. NOT ONCE. I have X amount in my wallet to gamble and that was it, I have never visited an ATM at any casino. Folk’s gambling is very serious. You can lose everything, and then more, and then you can lose anything. It can and does eat you up and spit you out. It is as addictive as any drug. The thrill of winning, of hearing all the noise, seeing the lights flash when you strike it big can get under your skin real quick. But you MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER, that if the players (the collective us) wins on anything that remotely resembles a regular basis, there would not be an open casino in the world. The Casino’s only exist because people lose their hard-earned money there. It wonderful to win 87,000,000 points in a day, but remember I pissed all but 15,500,000 away, the house wins even at Facebook.
Folks, as always if you have any questions concerns or issues with my post please feel free to talk to me about it. Take care, Bill
