We know Facebook makes us lazy, vain, depressed, self-centered and ignorant, but what about Facebook gaming?
Children are using ‘virtual coins’ to simulate the thrill of hitting the jackpot with slot machine and roulette games on their home computers and mobile phones… But addiction experts have warned the games encourage teenagers to think gambling is harmless fun.
The lottery is always granted to some random country bumpkin or rich asshole who buys 1,000 tickets, lucky for this McDonald’s employee – she won the biggest jackpot in lotto history, but now she refuses to share it with her participating employees.
Employee Mirlande Wilson … says she bought her winning numbers with her own money — not the $75 her coworkers pulled together to purchase tickets in the recent Mega Millions lotto drawing. Over a dozen of her fellow Mickey Dees employees claim they forked over five dollars a pop to have Wilson purchase tickets for the store, but the alleged winner claims that the lucky numbers were bought in a separate transaction using her own money. Now with Wilson standing to rake in over $100 million, the rest of the McDonald’s crew are left cynical and suspicious and are demanding that they be divvied up their share of the prize.
“She can’ t do this to us!” shift manager Suleiman Osman Husein tells the New York Post. Husein says 15 members of the staff at the Maryland McDonald’s pooled in cash towards the big jackpot, and they are now outraged that Wilson stands to take home millions and leave her coworkers sulking in their red polyester uniforms.
“We each paid $5. She took everybody’s money!” insists Husein.
