ball casino chance gamble

The croupier dropped the ivory ball and spun the wheel.  “12,” he announced.  The croupier organized the winnings and handed out the chips.

Sally placed her bet off the grid. “Spin me a wild ride, croupier.”

The croupier gave her a strange look, then dropped the ball and spun the wheel.

It kept spinning.  And spinning.

The casino fell silent as Sally took the croupier’s hand. “Looks like I won,” she whispered as she grabbed him by the wrist.  She licked his neck and nibbled on his ear. “Now give me my prize.”

    I’ve been to casinos… but the wheel isn’t my choice. You have to mathematically know what you are doing. As with most of the card games as well. . I go for the entertainment of the nickel slots…

    But really with all those cameras in the ceiling there isn’t much one can ‘get away with’…
    Kinetic energy has to stop …some time! Doesn’t it?

      Round and round and round it goes – where it’ll stop, nobody knows!

      I have never played any gambling game because the house always has clear advantage. Why else would casinos exist, unless they make a profit? 😉
