THE GAMING INDUSTRY CONSPIRACY

INTRODUCTION

Fellow hubbers you who know me know I’m no prude and I enjoy a little gambling once in a while. I always take the advice of my dear late father never gamble with money you can’t afford to lose always consider it gone once you start gambling with it.

GAMING CONSPIRACY

 

Anyone with a lick of common sense knows you can’t win every time no matter how smart or lucky you might be losing is part of gambling. It’s a matter of time until you eventually lose and if you continue gambling all your winnings plus more will be gone along with all your earthly possessions. You can’t beat the house forever the odds are stacked against you.

That’s why I give this warning to anyone willing to listen. The Gaming Industry is setting a trap for all of us in an insidious conspiracy on Games.Com. I’ve played real Video Poker Machines before and I know you never win all the time, but if you play Video Poker on Games.Com it’s impossible to lose even if you try. This is a manifestation of a horrid conspiracy of the gaming industry to lure unsuspecting new gamblers into a false sense of security. Once the new gambler is lured into this spider's web they’re hooked and they think they will never lose they will shoot the moon and all their earthly possessions will be soon gone!!!!!!!!!

 

MY EXPERIENCE ON GAMES.COM

I started playing Video Poker on Games.Com in November 2008 and I amassed a fortune in play money. To date I’ve accumulated over $660,000 in play money playing a quarter at a time, and it’s been so easy I can see the obvious lure to the neophyte. This illustrates the danger to the innocent young minds exposed to this conspiracy!!!!!!!!!!!!

FAIR WARNING

I consider this hub to be fair warning educate yourselves your children, and your friends and neighbors about the false message of the Gaming Industry as shown on Games.Com. Let everyone you know that you can’t win all the time and losing will become a way of life if you gamble compulsively!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now that you've done your due diligence regarding gaming, how

about a hub on the false message of multilevel marketing??

Great hub, Tom!

SusanP,

I avoided multi-level marketing so I have no knowledge to impart on this subject. Maybe you should educate the public on this subject.

vraj,

The game is a fun diversion but I fear the message it gives is very destructive.

I don't gamble simply because it does not interest me. In Illinois I supported the idea of recreational gambling on riverboats. However, I was somewhat bothered about how it grew. I do think government lotteries should be eliminated because I think it is up to the government to regulate not participate in gambling.

Gambling houses are always out to get your money so one should know what the odds are.

dahoglund,

Your advice is sound and I support your position on government gambling. They take all our money through taxes anyway they should stay out of gambling.

Tom, good hub and fair warning for all. I used to know folks who claimed that they could leave California, travel to Vegas, stay 3 days eat drink and gamble, drive home and break even every trip. Liars one and all. Somebodies paying the light bill in the casinos and while it may be possible to break even on all costs as well as win above those costs, I know better than anyone who is able to do it every trip, short of people smart enough to count cards or other methods that a casino has trained eyes to catch them at it. Most folks that monitor table cameras were hired for good wages after being caught as a person that could beat the house.

Good call, 50

Great hub, Tm.

Sadly, I know a young man who began gambling online and lost $90.000. He destroyed his chances at life.

Tom, I think it is a dangerous trend to get hooked on anything offered on line, especially gambling.

There is the thought that always enters my mind that Las Vegas was not built on winners. It's not an original thought, mind you. That has been said by countless others. But it's true.

It's true wherever casinos are. If you notice, they get bigger and bigger in most cases.

You and your father are exactly right about gambling. It is intended to taken as entertainment only. If you walk into a casino with any real intent on winning anything, you will be unfortunately disappointed. Winning is fun when it happens, but its rare.
