a sex addiction

Answer by Mrs. BonBon
well it does depend on their thinking –

slot players are often classified as escape gamblers – trying to escape their life – they are not like sports bettors or poker players – who are trying to win and beak the bank so to speak!

sounds crazy – but supposedly it does have some truth to it

your friend or family member is NOT playing a game under any circumstances that can be beaten

a really good math teacher should be all they need in theory to properly explain the laws of statistics and they are playing games that are simply not beatable –

there is no strategy or brain power – or hard work that can help one beat these games!

i wish you luck:)
