Some background information

Recommended Posts

Hi I have watched your videos for a long time and over time they have got more and more frequent. 

I was wondering what people’s background was eg jobs? How did you get started gambling? Do you still enjoy gambling? Are there actually any winners out there? 

Cheers

Hey Nik. I got into fruit machines in my very early years. I’m from a seaside town and played from about the age of 10 (I still think that should be illegal!). I don’t play so much anymore, the FOBTs are fruit machines on steroids with too much volatility and next to no interaction - what happened to looking for another cherry to nudge onto the win line and hoping you get a hold afterwards?!

I do enjoy retro slots and there’s still a few of those about. 5p, 10p, 20p play is my limit nowadays, maybe once a month.

And do I win? Not anymore... I used to make a killing in the late 90s/early 00s before the machines started taking notes rather than just solely coins. Stick in your £1... hear a clunk? The cash tubes are full and it’s in the cash box, it’s gonna pay! Ah sweet nostalgia.....

How times have changed!! 

I got into poker more than anything else and then 1 night while waiting to play a tournament i ended up talking to a guy about the slots and roulette (I was fairly new to the casinos), He told me to never bet against the wheel when playing roulette so i began with the odd £5 bet on red or black whatever it had been the time before! I missed my poker tournament and ended up playing roulette all night. Because i had only gone to play poker i only had £40 on me but i ended up leaving with £11000.

Been very young and foolish i thought that if i could win £11000 from £40 how much would i win if i went back the day after with £1000 i won £1800 and started talking to another guy who was betting on the numbers and his payouts were huge compared to my even money so i thought i would give it ago and quickly proceeded to lose the lot!

I only go to the casino once a month now and take £100 and once it has gone it is home time.

i play slots when i go and it is normally only pharaohs fortune, lady luck charm and book

I'd love to know what Darren does (for a living) and how he can spare so much cash for slots. Not criticizing, just genuinely interested!

He is a random number analyser.

Oh yes I remember that clunk so well... The odds always felt in your favour when you heard it

Some arcades deliberately filled the tubes to make you feel good and spend more money. Robbing ####,s
