Is He A Better Gambler Than You?

In the Epic meeting of the minds … Washington makes God laugh … by telling him his plans

Can you imagine the image of George Washington and God playing a game of dice? Or cards?  Or taking turns pulling the arm on a slot machine?  That would be an image worth a Pinterest pin, wouldn’t you say?

George Washington was a great gambler on the battlefield. He took many risks, which is probably reflective of the day in which he lived. Back then, people couldn’t gamble online. They had to make do with what they had, which usually involved sitting around a table and playing games of chance. Usually, they played it with cards, like playing blackjack or poker. Or sometimes they’d play with dice, like craps or sic bo.

When George Washington wanted to have fun and relax after working hard all day, he probably would sit down and play cards with some very important people over mugs of spiced wine. This probably helped him refine his battle techniques for the revolutionary war, which is why we have such a great and independent country. Imagine if he had been able to refine his techniques with an online casino, the kind you can play anytime.

He probably would have had twice the fun, if not more. We might even have had a country earlier than 1776 because of his time he would have gained from playing online games. That’s the power of playing online games, because it saves you time and effort, which is what everyone wants – even George Washington.
