Slots Are Cheaper

Picking up the story of our little vacation to Geyser Falls, we enjoyed the day and headed over to the Silver Star Casino to stay the night. Bad Idea....
They have an arcade over there that the kids just about went crazy to play in.
It did not take me long to realize that the darn arcade was more expensive than the slot machines. Here is Spencer, rolling and controling those balls.
The kids never hit the jackpot there but I lost on every game. I guess I should have just given them the money to go to the craps tables.

Here is a pic of Erin and her friend Madison enjoying the arcade.
They had a great time but as I get older, I find myself hating to put money in any machine that just eats it. I gritted my teeth and tried to keep quiet. I think every one had a really good time and I would like to go back to the waterpark, but I think I will skip the casino.
PS- I got Erin the Ipod.

haha! I know, we have a Dave & Busters that I take my little brother to every once in a while. I spend crazy amounts of money there only to watch him trade all of his hard earned tickets in for something you could buy at a dollar store - for 50 cents in the half off bin!

When I was a lad I used to put my nickels in those pinball machines that sometimes would line the numbers up like bingo..and paid off in games which could be turned in my money.

My Dad caught me one day and gave me some good advise...anything that puts its back against the wall and challenges the whole world..and stays gonna beat you. You had best leave it alone. I have found that he was right..those slot machines are a losers game..
