What I like about
the online casinos
All day I dream about a better world. One where my boss
will not yell at me or my college's annoying me. One where I
could live day to day, do what I like, not rotting away under
fluorescent lights. When it is finally time to go home, I face
an hour of congested roads and traffic jams. People hocking and
shouting, the rain pouring down and since my air conditioner
broke and I don't have money to fix it; I have the option of
getting wet or sitting in a sauna. When I'm driving home from
work like this, all I can think of is gambling at an online
When I get home, the wife is as distant
as can be; a microwaved dinner waits. After having my bland
meal, I turn on my computer, take a bag of nuts, a bowl, my Jack
Daniels, water and ice and I sit on my wonderful leather chair.
As Windows loads, my blood starts to rush and I begin to feel
alive again. By the time the system is up, I can barely stand
the excitement; what has fate prepared for me today?
I open my inbox and a whole array of
wonderful online casino offers is there for my picking. 100%
Bonuses, free chips, cash backs, prizes, contests, reminders,
news, everything. I choose an offer that I like, whatever it is,
I get to choose. Today, it was Cool Cat Casino that caught my
attention with a 300% bonus to play on slots. Which is fine by
my standards, since all I really play is slots. I have
occasionally perused the other games offered by this online
casino and others, but slots gambling is my thing.
Now you may be quick to remind me that a
300% bonus will have a very high play through and other
restrictions. But that is not a concern for me. I'll play till I
lose almost every time. When I play at an online casino, I get
taken into a world of excitement and opportunity where I am in
control. I have won over $2,000 twice and I have even received a
few presents from some online casinos including a calendar, card
sets, a mouse pad and a poker table. But there is more to
playing at an online casino then winning money. It is the
excitement, the thrill of living. It is the only time I can
remember what I felt when I was young. When my heart starts
pounding in my chest as the reels settle and I can taste the
possibility of winning 5 or 6 digits, it is the same heart
pounding feeling I got when I met my wife, when I got my first
car; when I most felt alive.
So yes, I wish I would win a million
dollars at an online casino and could afford to do what I want.
But until then, and even if that time does not come, I am happy
that every night I can feel alive again, if only for a moment.
