Turning Lead Into Gold: The Magic of Online Casinos

Last night I was playing some online casino slots and thinking about a story I loved when I was younger.

“Stone Soup” was the tale of a man who asked an old, crotchety lady for shelter in her cottage (home invasion, says my cynical self). The old lady crankily replied that she didn’t have enough food to feed herself, let alone another person (which was clearly a lie), and the man offered to make her soup from a stone. He then asked for things to “flavour” the stone with, eventually coaxing a cup of barley, vegetables and potatoes from the old woman, and they dined like kings under the stars.

Fair question: why on earth was I thinking about this story whilst playing casino slots?

Because aside from thinking that the lady had issues, one of my favourite parts of the story was how she must have seen the soup itself. It would have been a little like creating something out of nothing.

I couldn’t help but notice the parallel, since I had entered this particular online casino with almost nothing and would leave almost £100 richer.

Some people play for the thrill, and not everyone has luck all the time but in general online casino slots are one of the most lucrative ways to generate a big bank balance from something relatively small. The return depends on the size of your bet, the payout level and the amount of time you spend at it, but I know players who have generated significant online casino wins just by playing the slots exclusively.

Personally I can’t think of a better way to get ready for the weekend!
