The penny slots
Play the penny slots and you'll (maybe) win $30. That (might) buy you a nice dinner.
Play the penny slots and (with a lot of dedication) you (might) lose $10. That'll (maybe) keep you from eating out for lunch one time next week.
Inherently, gambling implies that you will either win it big or walk away with a loss.
You don't clean house at the penny slots, so stop playing them. You're fooling yourself with dreams of adventure.
Play it big to win big.
