More Places to Lose

What can be done when horses don’t run on the track? Slot machines and table games bring the gamblers back. Compared to horses, casinos bring in much more money. People prefer to stay inside where it is not sunny. Racetracks all over are making the transformation. New casinos are popping up all over the nation. These are the places compulsive gamblers will choose. There are now more houses where these unfortunates will lose.

    We get so many adverts now offering us free money to gamble with on line in the comfort of our homes it's unbelievable and I think wrong. Well written Robert xx

    The addiction of gambling is just as bad as any. Makes you wonder, do the hotlines really offer help. They make billions early! Good Piece!
