I have just admitted to myself that I'm addicted to scratches.

I hate myself for it.

But this is the first step in recovery right. Its hard

Hi Gambler123

Scratchies eh ... are they luckier than Pokies? somehow I doubt it ... same greedy people behind them, all wanting a big share of the pie.

As a player of gaming machines I feel like we are being screwed over too much by the greedy ones ...

There was a time when the payouts were much much better but it didn't take them (Government/venue operators/charities) long to realise that gamblers aren't too bothered by winning ratios .. so they lowered them and they take home most of the money ...
The players noticed that the machines became "tight" and getting your money back was so so much harder - put more money in - put more money in - nothing out. problem gambler.

So easy to fix ... but ofcourse that is not likely .... no one really cares about the Pokie player ... they just have to suck it up ... and find the strength themselves to stop playing ... even forums like this - such a good idea - aren't promoted or used ... sad really.

anyways, hope you are ok and have knocked the scratchie habit to the curb
