Slots of Fun

“What are you betting Mable?”

“I always bet the maximum Ilene… the prizes are so much bigger then.”

“But the money disappears too fast for me then.”

The two women played on the slot machines for almost an hour when Ilene turned to Mable and said, “I just hit a big one!  I think it is time to cash out here and hit the buffet before the dinner crowd starts.”

Mable turned to see the payout on Ilene’s machine.  It was a nearly $2000 payout.  She looked at the top of the machine and said, “See now, if you had bet the maximum you’d have won a lot more.”

Ilene just smiled and said, “I am happy with what I won.  No need to be greedy.  Now let’s hit that buffet line.”
