I can go to the local handi-mart and lay my money down on a lottery ticket. After all, it’s for the “greater good of Education” and I stand a reasonable chance of winning millions, right?

It could happen to me, right? – Rubbish!

I can spread my risk around in a mutual fund; a little high risk for massive returns, right? (more…)

Tribal Gaming Casinos Beginnings

Tribal Gaming Casinos – Are They “The Red Mans Revenge” ?

Tribal Gaming Casinos

Tribal Gaming Casinos

Etched in the history of our great nation is a long and lamentable chapter about the exploitation of Native Americans…. Every kind of charlatan and every type of crook has deceived and exploited America’s native sons and daughters. While these accounts of unscrupulous men are sadly familiar, the tale we hear today is not. What sets this tale apart, what makes it truly extraordinary, is the extent and degree of the apparent exploitation and deceit.” — Statement of Senator John McCain, Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, Oversight Hearing on Lobbying Practices Involving Indian Tribes, 9/29/04

The good Senator McCain was not referring to the 1800’s or even 1900’s but current affairs of the time regarding Tribal Gaming Casinos and the mistreatment of Native American owners. (more…)

Joseph Jagger – The Roulette Take Down In Monte Carlo II

Continued From Part I

Dawn came with the ocean breeze fresh in his nostrils. Joseph Jagger lay in a mid-morning half-awake dream and suddenly felt a peach pit of fear in his gut and jolted out of bed like a man electrocuted. Today is the day! Today! This is it old boy! … exclaimed Joe.

Joseph Jagger went to the salon and had a bath and a shave. The tailor came and accoutered him in creased white cottons, a black hat, vest, and shoes and a red bow tie. Tipping well all around, he then ate a hearty meal and steeled himself for the task to come. (more…)

Back to this stink hole again. How I despise it all sometimes! How could I have been so foolish? I won enough a fortnight ago at the roulette wheel to acquire some sizable holdings and not have to look forward to my pension … but could I walk away with it? Bloody ‘ell no!

I had to try to double it, didn’t I? You dolt! Daft I tell ya, daft! (more…)

Gambling Psychology

The Psychology Of Gambling

Gambling Psychology | The Psychology Of GamblingFor some people, the urge to gamble is a mystery. Gambling Psychology may be at work here but the possibility of “getting something for nothing”, just isn’t worth the risk of getting nothing for something.

People tend to fall along a scale from very risk-averse to very risk-tolerant, and certain people, because of heredity, environment, or both, may be more inclined to gamble.

But this does not speak to gambling psychology, which comes from a much more basic, animal part of our nature.

“Why Gamble?”

What makes us gamble? (more…)
