Actually I did even long long ago as a 3 year old My father had bought some "slot machine' - plastic, 1 line reel and a payout table infront.
Something oldschool like this, but with fruits:
It was to say it by nowadays words mobile Back in the 80s in Bulgaria was communism and every novelty from the west was admired and very popular. So even the adults played a spin or tens...
Later as a 2-3 grader ~10yo we already were playing real machines for real money before and after school or in between
One of my friends had discovered a glitch in the slot machine - simply switch it off the el. current and quickly put the plug on before the owner of the playhouse/pub sees you. Then it always landed 777 the 1st spin after, but we tried it only twice before the plugs were sealed
It was an one-handed bandit and regulary robbed us of our lunch-money. That was my early childhood in the first years of democracy(anarchy).
Later as more mature 13-14yo I was quickly addicted to video-poker as 70% of the young and very young males populating the "casinos". After some devastating loses I quit it for good.
You could imagine what laws and regulations were present back then. We were allowed to drink, smoke, gamble, some smoked pot and only the act of copulation remained private and for the older than us.
And now to the question: after such highly releasing dopamine activities at young age how could you imagine me playing for fun in the internet casino?
It is simply boooooring. Tried few times when there were promos here, but mostly on auto-spin.
I want to say that in Romania we were the same, and I played slots and machine poker, but after I got married I gave it up definitively, and on the online game for very small money, I try my luck if after 10 to 20 spins I do not win anything I give up the real money game.
