I remember when I was a child my mom used to gamble every saturday. We never had money so she would take R20 (just inder $3) and gamble till she won R500. All our groceries used to come from her gambling money. It was so weird, she won exactly R500 every Saturday! My gran and I used to wait in the dining room downstairs at the casino and have breakfast and a juice and she would come and pay for it with her winnings.
She hasn't won anything since my siblings and I were old enough to move out.

I hate gambling but every time my mom asks me to gamble with her I play R20 and I always win at least R500 or more. I'm very lucky. I still refuse to use my money like that when I have children to feed!
