Don’t Fall for the Promotion “Shell game”

Part 3, The Shell Game

We edged in closer like mice drawn to cheese. A player asked Wade for help and as it turns out, Wade was pretty good at guessing. The thing is, though Wade was guessing, he wasn’t wagering, so he wasn’t winning.

Maybe you know what happened next. After a few winning rounds, the player thanked Wade and turned to leave, but not before encouraging Wade to try himself. Full of confidence, Wade plopped $20 onto the table.

Then, something unexpected happened. Failure! The shell Wade picked was empty and to prove it, the operator reveal the red ball under a different shell. Wade played a few more times before we left and never won.

Tune in tomorrow for the next installment…
