I've been playing the poker machines for quite sometime and only really recently watched videos on how they are programmed.
This made me stop as it made me realise the tricks that game companies use to keep us coming back for more.

When watching they said that for each session 85% of the time is losing and the other 15% is winning. They just spread out the winning and losing during your gambling session. It may only be a couple of minutes of winning during your session.

This has made me stop thinking this way. You have a low chance of winning so why bother playing them...
They should be banned as they provide no real benefit for society.

Hi my name is sil, what you actually saying is right, i hate these people, I usually gamble at the RSl club with all those cameras on top of your roulette tab and these people monitoring the games must be laughing when seeing betting on 36 numbers out of 37 and the only number you didn't bet on came up. It happened to me countless times.
