Re: “Sweepstakes gambling on the way out in NC?

I am so glad they are shutting these places down!!!!!!!!!!!! I have seen so many friends and family members loose everthing they had! These places might have been put here to employ many but it harmed thousands when it came to gambling. These places were rigged for the owners to become rich over poor people chasing the hundreds they have spent. My mom was so addicted that she thought she knew how the machine would pay out and she lost everything she had. She spent many nights in there trying to win back her two week salary that she lost in 1 hour. The more you loose the more eager you are to win and you end up spending all you have. After loosing it all, you borrow from others to make it and its a chain reaction that repeats it self. You loose everything you have and still dont come to realization that you are an addict. You dont only loose money in these places you loose family and negelect your love ones. My mother felt this was a place to relax but Im sorry loosing all you have is no relaxation to me. She lied about going and went from city to city chasing the all mighty dollar. Yes at times she might have won $1000 but she spent $3000 to win that. My mother was very dependable independent and always was very responsible after she became an addict to this shit she became a person that I dont know..... So Im glad its over so maybe I will finally have the mother back that I once knew..... I lost her for 5 years to this crap......
