That sounds like a horrible existence. I vulture before or after a poker session, that’s all I care to do.

I agree

But they must be eking out a profit. they are pretty consistent. I see the same faces day in, day out.

If you dont have knowledge of a different play,...

A spare few combine it with comps. they use their players card and I imagine always receiving free play amd free food from vultured positive play can add to their bottom line

I am sure they would argue it is a job.

It certainly haa the feel of a job even if self-employed

they walk up to empty machines, cycle briskly thru the different bet levels and then walk away (unless they see a vulture opportunity left behind pf course)

It must be a new dieting technique aimed at encouraging exercise. With all that walking, perhaps its sponsored by the casino's footware store?

Surely people have better things to do with their lives.

I don’t know what minimum wage is down south but McDonald’s pays $11.65/hour up north depending on what province you’re in. Seems like a better option.

Since I am familiar with some of the faces I see them often than not at -ev games later in the day

I do not believe these are primarily AP's living the life as opposed to degenerate gamblers that have stumbled on a way to finance a portion or all of their gambling addiction.

As such they probably dont see the time wasted on this vulture play the same way you and I do

I guess any time they “waste” is time they aren’t losing money on -EV games.

Or they’re supplementing government benefits, and don’t want no job getting in the way of that.

If they put a couple on each end of the casinos they could advertise as a exercise program.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?
