Beschreibung

This astonishing book reveals that there's a lot more to playing slot machinesone of America's fastest growing forms of entertainmentthan good fun, deep relaxation and the dream of a multi-million-dollar jackpot. Slots tells how the machines work, how the random numbers that govern them are generated, and how the casinos make their profit . . . slowly but surely . . . as they keep only a dime of every dollar invested. It also offers strategies of slot play, and suggests alternate activities to distract us when casinos become harmfully habitual.But ultimately, as Dr. Forrest writes, to spend one's time feeding money to the machines is to participate in, well . . . a form of prayer. And the gaming industry seems very much aware of it, as players annually plunge more than $365-billion into slots (of which casinos keep about $30-billion), and as casinos70 to 85 percent of whose profits are earned by slot machineshave spread to more than a dozen states and even into a number of racetracks (where they're called ',racinos').What this book describes with both humor and a sense of awe is the way slots emporia have steadily been transformed from underground grottos to soaring cathedral-like structures where congregants sit and communeall to the end of worshipping the god of chance.
