The Reel Life

23 July 2009

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. This especially applies to gambling. As online slots aficionados, The Reel Life knows that the house always wins. A married couple in England thought they had a foolproof way to beat the house, but saw their plan go up in flames.

According to the Daily Mail, an unidentified married couple in their 50s traveled hundreds of miles from the south coast of England to attend a dog race at Sheffield's Owlerton Stadium. They brought nearly £47,000 to the track, hoping to scoop up a British record breaking greyhound jackpot of £101,110.39.

Their plan was to place "£46,656 in bets to cover every possible placing of six dogs in six races, using cash they brought in a Tesco carrier bag."

Sounds foolproof, doesn't it? Well, the problem for this couple was that there were other bettors at the track as well.

"But the couple had not bargained on two other ticketholders backing all six winners and the jackpot being split three ways. It meant that their share of £33,703.46 left them with a net loss of around £13,000."

The house always wins. It's a tried and true statement, and one you can bet The Reel Life will always follow.

Get in the fast lane grandma, the Bingo game is ready to roll!

The gold standard, however, is the "Gold Rally" slot machine. That jackpot is at $1,667,192 and counting.

Give these a whirl and maybe you can be the one that beats the house.
