Slot machines – amoung the most addictive games of all

I have tried several casino games in my life, but there was only one that nearly got me addicted: slot machines. The slots are the most addictive games I have ever played, and I have tried them all (all Red Flush table games, including craps, although I could never understand that one, card games, video poker, you name it).

The slot machine is maybe the easiest game to play at a casino. It's easier than roulette - and that's something, trust me. It can also be an incredibly rewarding game, but it has a catch: the most frequent wins are usually below the amount spent by the player for a spin, so even if you feel like you are winning, your funds are actually decreasing quickly.

You just keep playing, and don't understand how your funds have melted without you noticing. The game is not just rewarding, but also available in an incredible variety. There are hundreds, if not thousands of online video slot machines available in online casinos, and many others can be found outside them. Even Zynga, the world famous Facebook game developer, has not one, but two collections of slot machines available for its users, that feel and look real (except for the money, that one is virtual).

Every slot machine fan can find at least one game to play with pleasure. It is easy to become addicted to slot machines because they are fun to play even with no money involved. I consider myself a fan, and play them with regularity. My brother asked me once "Why do you like playing this stupid game"? Well, to be honest, I don't know. There is something that attracts me to the slots, although I can't really put my finger on it. That is why I control my playing habits and resist the urge to play more often: to avoid becoming an addict.

Gambling addiction is a severe disorder, and it has to do with winning. Actually, problem gamblers are not addicted to the game itself, but to winning. It is similar to other impulse control disorders, such as kleptomania, and people who suffer from ludomania (the medical name of it) are also likely to develop other similar mental disorders, like drug related problems, personality disorders and similar.

A problem gambler can harm himself, his family and friends, and ruin his life entirely. First it's his own paycheck that goes down the drain, but later it is followed by money borrowed from family and friends. The addict first sells everything he can, taking the money straight to a casino, but later - at a more serious stage - he will steal and rob as well, just like a drug addict would.

My advice to you is that if you think of gambling too often, feel the urge to play at any time of the day, or notice any other symptom of addiction on yourself, seek help and avoid casino games as far as you
