Two fat ladies want to make money!

Well okay, we're not THAT fat, just big boned, but ... let me explain. I know I'll never get rich quick off the internet unless I invest wisely. Well, stuff that. I want to have fun. I do the national lottery most weeks and, so far, I reckon I'm down to the tune of minus £200. Although last week I did get 5 of the winning numbers. Spread over 3 boards. So I'm thinking Bingo might be a better deal. I reckon it must be a lot easier to win a few thousand, than linger in the vain hope of winning the quadro-million "big one" on the lottery. I've got as far as joining the Daily Mail Bingo, and investing £11. That got me a bonus straight away, taking my investment up to £25, even though I've not played yet. And that's the rub, see? I'm one of these annoying people who DOESN'T win the one-armed bandit jackpot and pump it all back in. I like to walk away with my winnings. As most Bingo games are just a few pence to play, it'll take me ages to spend the £25 in my account, but when I do I want to see a good return. So, any tips? Bingo is one thing I don't see discussions on here. But does anyone play online bingo? how do I get started? There seems to be so many different games, starting all the time, day and night, that I've been left totally confused.com.

The best way to make money - online or off - is to work for it. Anything else is just pipe dreams. Gambling systems are built on a mathematical model that ensures the people running the game win. I've written press releases for an internet gaming provider and they're bluntly honest about the fact that the profit is in the losers. That's why gambling is a bad idea: the only sure thing is lining the provider's pockets.

Ah - I know that, Spike. 'Tis why I'm currently running off articles on bloody washroom cubicles (could ANYTHING be more boring?!) at the rate of 3 an hour. Unfortunately I'm officially incapacitated due to the brain bleed I had 2 months ago, and officially not allowed to drive for a living, so the idea of a new career doing deliveries for ASDA or being a home-run taxi service is out of the window. Otherwise I'd be doing 60 hours a week - I need the money! Actually, I'm already a home-run taxi service, come to think of it ... I'm not a gambler by habit, though I do have a flutter on the Grand National occasionally. But SOMEBODY's gonna win that next £63 million or whatever on the lottery, and it sure won't be me. I just thought Bingo looked fun and kind of legit. Only - it's all changed since the days of housey-housey at the end of the pier.
