"Man gambles away $2,600 for a Xbox"

#21StucklnMyPantsPosted 4/30/2013 12:55:43 PM
The point isn't that he could have bought a 360 for so much cheaper, the problem lies with the person compulsively gambling away over $2000 when the potential return is, at most, a couple hundred dollars. What's more interesting is why he felt the need to do that, or who was he trying to prove himself to, or how often does he gamble and does he spend a lot of money doing it? Gambling is very addictive, and really these type of stories (but not necessarily these circumstances) are somewhat common.

It's not really gambling. Gambling implies that winning is based on chance. What this guy played was a rigged game of skill. No randomness involved.

Going home for $2300 more was the biggest fail of this story. What a moron.

He probably thought it wouldnt cost more than the system cost to win it, even if he only got it $40 cheaper, but that logic turned into something else...

I never saw a head of cabbage with hair upon it before.

"went home to get $2,300 more and soon lost all of that as well."

Just to clarify, he went HOME for his life savings and not to the BANK? Hahah!
