The Zen of Online Slots

I usually write about poker here, but today I want to talk about online slots. To me there’s something very zen and calming about playing online slots. Unlike poker, where you’re constantly competing with other players, in an online slots situation, you’re just sitting back, relaxing, and waiting to see if you’ve won anything. In some ways, online slot machines are like real life.

Online slots are fun. They don’t require any strategy or thinking. All you do is put your money in and spin the reels to see if you’ve won.

Online slots teach serenity. You have no choice as to whether or not you’re going to accept the outcome. If you lose money on a slot machine spin, then it’s gone. It doesn’t matter whether or not you like it or not.

Online slots can teach you the value of minimalism. If you’ve spent most of your cash playing an online slot machine, then you’re going to have to live on what you have left until you get paid again. You might wind up drinking tap water for a while. You might be eating more moderately. These are zen type simplicities to embrace.

You know, now that I think about it, regular slot machines at a walk in casino also have a certain zen quality to them.
