Pokies, yawn

The Auckland Sky Tower by Sids1.

The Tower

Right now I’m in a parallel universe. I’m in a super-posh room with a giant bed in a contemporary, well-styled room.

I’m in Auckland for a social media conference (that rules), which is being held at Sky City so work has put me up in the same hotel. It’s nice. Really nice.

I had dinner out with my friend Carol (we met at art school) and then we went to the Casino to a) stare at people and b) walk around in a daze looking at the lights. We each had $20 to spend and after a quick lesson from the floor cashier in how exactly to play the pokies (yes, I am that shameful) we got to it. I won $8! Actually I won $20, put that in my purse to break even then blew the rest until I was down to $8.

Playing the pokies is a bit boring – no chance I’ll be hitting the pubs any time soon.

Carol and I also got asked for ID when we went in – you need to be 20 to enter. Score!

  1. Congrats on your casino winnings at the pokies! You may think they’re boring cause you’ve only tried them once, but actually they’re a lot of fun. Have you tried other games like 21, or roulette (very easy)

    BTW here you have to be 21 to enter a Casino so you got lucky 😉

    Thanks for your comment TheVirtualCasino – I’m 32, which is why I thought getting asked for ID was so funny!
