My wife is driving me crazy. She loves playing penny slots. She loves playing penny slots even though she loses every time she plays. I'd say in her last 10 trips, she's come ahead once, and that was for $10.

She doesn't like using her card because she says she always loses when her card is in.

So I guess what I'm asking for is help in these two areas:

1) How to convince her that there is no way that her players card in the slot can affect the results of a spin.
2) A better slot machine for her to play. (She refuses to play VP) Let's say her average bankroll is $100-$200 for a trip.

I'm not sure if there is an answer to #2, but I'm not an expert at slots. If I ever play a slot machine, I'll put $20 in a .25 Wheel of Fortune machine and get mad and cash out when I get the bonus and it's 40 credits.



Is she driving you crazy because she plays penny slots, which we know is a bad deal, or is she driving you crazy because she gets upset when she loses? If the latter, does she get upset at you or just get upset in general?

If it's the former, and you simply don't like the fact that she wagers money at bad games, well too bad (unless it's your money she's wasting, then that's a different story).

She knows how to play table games. If I go with her to the casino, we will usually play pai gow poker together.

But typically, she goes with her parents or by herself. Those are the times she plays slots.

That’s a sad story bedwetter, but thanks for sharing.



Eh no problem, not as sad as this one though... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUsX9UMxJnQ

Hope you never get to that point!

It’s sort of the opposite.

I know it’s a bad deal, and she does NOT get upset when she loses. If she did, maybe she’d change things up a bit.

I like babs idea of quick hit for 30 cents. I’ll suggest that next time we go.

Quick hits is a fun game, even at min bet. I love the free games music.

Just tell her she is hurting you wasting money. She should care if she hurts you, I'll hold off judgement and options for now.

I probably exaggerated a bit with the title “save my marriage.”

But it is something we bicker about after she comes home from the casino losing $100.

Did her power over you make you say that? ;)

If you set a loss limit that you both agree upon beforehand would that help?

Perhaps she could set up a 'mad money' account where she puts in, say $200 per month and has total discretion how to spend it. If it gets used up, no more casino trips til next month. Actually you could both set up such accounts if it would help. You may be less concerned if you know the money is already 'lost.'

Obviously if it's gotten this far, it isn't about the penny slots or players cards, those are only symptoms.

There is no direction you can turn from here that isn't going to cost you, the only choice you have is whether to pay in coin or soul.

This is the only life your going to get imo, so you either sacrifice your treasure or your happiness. Fact is you can always make more money, but your life has an expiration date.

You might try this? Get a really hot chick to help you out, [they usually like busting other chicks balls] get her to sit next to your wife and play the same game [you may have to give her a few $ in advance}, get her to play with your card and continually remark to your wife how sexy you think it is when a woman plays with a card using basic strategy. You need to play on their insecurity's. You could also mention how you think her best friend has lost some weight.

You see, chances are, your wife is only doing it because she wants to show you who is boss.

I'd start by asking if the marriage is worth saving? Make a list of how your life would be if you stay married, and another how it might be if not. Make a list of ten things you really would like to do. Now ask yourself how many of them you won't be able to do because your wife would object.
This isn't about slots, is it?
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way
