      It’s crazy that there is nothing about a casino I like. NOTHING. Well, that is one slot machine. I could careless and never walk into a casino again, nothing bothers me, but the fact that they have this ONE slot machine that I will literally wait hours waiting for someone to get off of it to play. My intentions are to play $1.00 or maybe .50 cents. I limit myself. Before you know it, 6 or 7 hours have passed and I have found so many ways to get into my bank account, credit card cash advances, etc. Even when I’m so ahead! It’s never enough. I leave depressed yet yearning to go back. Are there others like this? With one machine? We have casinos all around us. I never step foot, no interest….except this one because it has this particular ONE machine. HELP!!!!!

      Hi Lizzy,

      Slot machines are designed to evoke particular emotions, so people can relate more to them. Hence, it may help if you analyse the reasons why you are attracted to that specific machine. Does it remind you of something? (Sounds, rewards, particular symbols or theme). What is drawing you to this specific machine?
