Walking through the slot machines while two men, one short other one tall, wearing black suits were following me. I look at all the people around me, all playing with slot machines without looking around them. It’s not so bad for me, at least I won’t feel ashamed because no one is actually looking to see what is going on. As I get closer and close to the main entrance of Chumash Casino, I look at the rose gold pink marble walls that gave the casino a royal look.. I looked at the two security guards that were waiting at the front door, both looking at me with the look of “So you thought you can get through with this?” I decided to stop by the coffee shop to get a coffee; my head was killing me.

At least for me.” “Hope of winning?” that is an interesting way of seeing it. So all these people come back in the hope of winning, that’s why mostly always the slot machines at the entrance will make you win,
