The lights were flashing, and the noises were loud. Zach had never been before attracted to such a place. The dealer said “place your bets” and Zach threw $20 down on the roulette table. Zach turned his $20 into $40, then his $40 into $80. Just like that, Zach became addicted to gambling.
Zach left the casino with $1500. Zach was a mechanic and lived by himself in an apartment in Las Vegas. It was not long before he was at the casinos every night making tons of money. His friends called him “Mr. Lucky” because he never seemed to lose. Zach quickly moved up the casino chains. He ended up not needing his job and moved into his own house. Life was good and kept on improving. Every time Zach went to the casino he would not leave until he had a tower of chips so high that he could hardly see over them. As weeks went by, he had bought brand new cars, fancy clothes, and even found a girlfriend. He was truly living the good life.
One cold summer night something strange happened. Zach was under for the first time ever. Not too worried about it, he kept on playing through the night. It only got worse. “How is this happening?” asked Zach franticly. “Maybe I better just take a break”. When Zach was driving home that night, his thoughts were eating him inside, knowing that he had left the casino a loser for the first time. He spun the car around with a chirp and headed back for revenge. When he arrived back, the sun had started shining and Zach’s eyes were blood shot. He played all day until his body decided to fall asleep at the poker table. The casino escorted him to a room where he could rest. Pushing the limits Zach woke up rapidly, and realized he had lost half of his fortune. “I must have it back,” he said. Zach stumbled back to the poker table and lost every hand of every game, until he did not have a cent to his name. “That’s Impossible” he scowled at the dealer. “I want my money back” he screamed. From that, he was thrown out of the casino.
