OK. So now I've presented you with this story, dear reader, the way I see it, you could have taken it in one of three ways. Firstly, you could just take it as a joke. And just laugh-off its eventual punch-line. Secondly, you can take this tale in a less favorable manner. And completely dismiss the jovial notion it was ultimately trying to convey. And thirdly, you can say to yourself, 'Oh, sod it', before heading off and having a flutter on an online slot machine.
Well, if you think about it for a moment or two. You could easily surmise this scenario and slot machines have a number of things in common. Not only because they're both daring to some extent, plus involve gambling. But in addition to this, they can be engaged or dismissed like a duck in a crispy pancake.
For instance, if three red sevens come in, you can be happy about the outcome. If you get a singular purple cherry drop down, at least you get your money back. Yet if all you get is odds and sods... err... better luck next time, pal. Cause at the end of the day that's what it all boils down to. Luck. Not skill. Not chance. Not opportunity. Luck, with a heavy dose of good will and good fortune bountiful in equal measures. Don't you agree, my gambling friend?
Hmm? I'm not sure if that was a 'yes' or not.
