So there I was on Friday night, home alone without any plans for Valentine’s day, cooking asparagus for one, and I thought maybe there’s something missing in my life. Some vital component with which everything would suddenly become wonderful. That’s right kids, the answer’s internet gambling.

It wasn’t anything I’d ever really wanted to get into. In fact it comes roughly between Christmas day swimming in the Atlantic and crack cocaine on the list of things which I really don’t want to get into. But there are a whole host of internet sites offering deals which seem too good to be true.

The offer I’ve randomly been drawn to is one on Skybet, you need to place a five pound bet of your own money on something with odds less than evens (I don’t really understand odds but I’m sure Wikipedia can help), and then they give you four more free bets. Which surely only makes sense for them if the average punter is going to lose twenty pounds in the long run plus enough to compensate for all those who take the money and run.

So this may be one of those pivotal moments when one’s life starts spiraling into chaos and woe, but surely 2/9 on Wales beating England on Saturday can’t be too bad? I’m sure I can give up after my four free bets…

‘Well now you’ve heard my sad story,
you can have another round of booze,
and if anyone should ever ask you,
tell them Kempez died of those gambler’s blues.’

Remember Kempez but ah, forget his fate

Alas, poor Kempez, I knew him well

    It’s alright as long as you can keep it under control which I know is quite possible because my Mum has been a gambler all her life, she goes in for gambling casino’s though.

  2. Sorry ‘Sue’, I agree with Gav on rambling and completely unconnected comments and have removed your second.
