Inciting a mob to attack and ransack the halls of congress is an affront to American democracy.
This is an abuse of power on American soil that cannot go unchecked or excused. Confederate Flags and Trump banners point clearly to the president and his followers who are fanning the flames of sedition.
My grandmother told me that “a fish stinks from the head”. Seven Republican senators and their counterparts in the house are Complicit and forever tainted for endorsing this insurrection. This is not enough. There is blood on their hands and a broken oath to protect the constitution.
The president and these conspirators should not be given another “Pass” on this – They should be pressured to resign, or be recalled by their states. The President (who said he could shoot someone in Times square and get away with it) should be pressured to resign in shame or be removed immediately for the safety and protection of the country. The members of the angry mob that stormed the capitol building must also face consequences, for the action s they took and the damage they have done.
The tainted representatives and the president are FUNDRAISING to propagate the UNPROVEN election fraud. Refusing to believe over 50 lost lawsuits and the Supreme court has allowed them to raise millions for their illegitimate cause. The profits from this should be ferreted out and seized, and donated to a fund to rebuild the capitol. There should be no profiteering from lying to the American people.
The time for action is upon us – a lot can happen in the days before President Elect Biden and Vice President Elect Harris are inaugurated.
If you want a shot at winning anything on slot machines, you have to play. The Longshot win of someone putting a quarter in a machine and winning a million dollars is Hollywood, but it can happen. (and yes, I do put my few dollars in the giant slot machine when you enter the casino, you never know).
Apart from playing more equals more chances to win (or lose, if you look at it that way), I am a low-roller and a “session” gambler, extending play with lower wagers and $10 – $20 sessions. Winning “big” is a factor of the RNG, the “Random Number generator” that determines the outcome each time you spin. Each spin has an equal chance of winning, although larger progressive jackpots are only paid when the maximum is bet.
While I would be exuberantly happy and excited with a big jackpot, I have never won more than about $200 on any one machine. The real payout is the fun you have with a machine that has aliens, stampedes, hay-wires, super Heroes, or free spins.
So my answer is that I play, to increase the possibility of winning – but luck and the RNG have not granted the “big wins”. (YET).
Slot machine payouts are at regulated percentages over the lifetime of the machine. The machines are regulated, the payouts are calculated over the lifetime of the machine, and – unless the machine is reprogrammed – the RNG (Random Number generator) chip determines the win or lose on each wager. so the machine does not care what day of the week it is, just the RNG.
Having said that, it is obvious that some casinos have increased numbers of PLAYERS on the weekends, and more people playing means that (overall) there is a potential for more winners (and losers), although statistically the odds are the same.
There are machines that use “gaming psychology” to make you feel that winning 50 cents on a dollar bet is a “CONGRATULATIONS!! YOU WON FIFTY CENTS!!” event, when in fact you LOST fifty cents on that wager. Each wager is a random event, so gamble responsibly, understand the payout tables, and avoid superstitions like any machine is “overdue for a big win”.
Play games you enjoy, and have fun at, and walk away when you have invested an amount you are comfortable wagering. Personally, I am a “session gambler”, and will play a variety of machines when I am in a gambling mood.
I have touched on the subject before, so take a look at my shameless self promotion:
