  • I always hated gambling. I can't see the point. You know about the odds. Why give your money away, for a remote chance of getting them back with a bonus?

    I had my wedding in Las Vegas, and I never felt any desire to put even a penny in the slot machines.

    But I love the satisfactory sound of lots of coins rattling down. The exchange machine doesn't even charge you a fee.
