Yesterday I went to Mystic Lake Casino with my dad, sister and nurse to play the slots. I'm not much of a gambler; it was only my second time actually being on the floor with the machines. I used to go all the time as a kid with my grandparents just to eat and browse the shops. I didn't remember how many people smoked while they gambled. I guess it's stressful losing money or something like that. Well, it's not the best idea for me to be around all that smoke with my vent and all so we made our way back to the "non-smoking" section of the casino. When we got there, we realized that the "non-smoking" section and the "smoking" section were separated by a single aisle with machines on both sides. It wasn't exactly isolated; so much for that idea.
We ended up staying there anyways and played some different machines. I put a dollar in a couple of them, but didn't win anything. Then I found this one that I played the first time I went to the casino called Reel 'em in. I stuck $10 in that one and played till it was gone. I don't understand how people can sit there for hours just pushing a button. Especially if all you do is lose. The one thing that was funny to me was the fact that my nurse got to gamble with my money. Since I can't exactly push the button, she had to do it for me. I kept getting distracted because I wasn't actually focusing on betting.
When we were on our way out, I stopped at the poker machine and put my last $10 in. I wish I had been there the whole time because that section wasn't very smoky because it was really close to the hotel. Plus I kept winning which made it my favorite game. I quit playing when I was up to $15. That means I only lost seven dollars the whole day; not too bad. My dad and sister both left with less money as well. It was fun though, and great people watching.
