They return a portion of sucked up loot to “winners” who are then tricked into investing their “winnings” until that too is all gone.
Next, the casinos pay wages of sin to many needless employees who apply salve to sore losers, grease to prospective champions and perform the all important counting / (ahem) control functions.
The remaining booty is split up between the mob, government and casino owners. (might all be the same dude)
Any paltry sum remaining is disguised as grants which instantly morph into favors supplied to special interest groups who will one day be called upon for support. That vote of hell yeah is the bargoon one strikes to remain “a winner”.
Players financing these dark holes will continue to pay.
And a mighty few will continue to win big.
While the rest of us snoozers lose.
Thank you, friend.
If you watch this video while you’re giddyapp on dopey dope dope like Elvis, it makes a heck of a lot more sense. Really!
