...I used to work in a casino. At the casino I worked in, they did promotions, give-aways etc. I found that most people that came into the casino were less fortunate (didn't have great jobs, couldn't really afford to be gambling) or just cheap skates... Most would come in because you could get a Budweiser for $1, while you gambled. They would put $20 in a machine, and get $5 free (a casino promotion) bet 5 cents (and later when they got penny games... a penny), drink their $1 beers and hang out till lunch. When... we gave away free tacos. After the free tacos were devoured, they would drink more $1 beers until the happy hour was over, cash out their $24.75 and go home...only to be back the next day, doing the same thing. Now, if they only put in $20, got $5 free and drank only 4 beers... they were making 75 cents just sitting in the casino. As for the real cheap skates, they had it down to a science. They would shop at Albertsons, where we had coupons on the back of the receipts... (one lady even dug through the trash at the grocery store to get the coupons...I SAW her with my own two eyes!) These coupons would entitle them to $5 free machine play if they only put in $5 (they couldn't cash out for 30 minutes. These people come in during the free taco hour, eat lunch...put in $5 of their own money, I would put in $5 of the casino money...and watch them stall. They would bet only 5 cents...ask for water, ask for popcorn...and honestly, I've never seen a lady go to the bathroom so many times in 30 minutes! They would always cash out for $10 to $8.50... that's at least making $3.50....FREE MONEY! If you went to every casino in town, and did that all day, you could quit your job at Town Pump! So, maybe we should all try this new form of employment... it seems to work so well for the thrifty!
