The Big Gamble

Rated 4.25/5 based on 4 reviews
He knew that slot machine was gonna pay off big. But his luck was against him--in more ways than one--and another man claimed the jackpot.

But there's more than one way to win or lose in New Orleans, and the casino's got nothing on the high-stakes game going on in the hotel penthouse. Up there, it's life or death.

About Bobby Mathews

Bobby Mathews attended Troy University, where he majored in journalism and minored in theater and English. His checkered past includes stints as a reporter and editor for daily newspapers, where he won awards for his writing, editing and leadership. No, he has no idea what the contest judges were smoking, either.

He's also been a bartender, paralegal, and bum, occupations—or sidelines—that creep into his stories and novels.

"I write weird stories about monumentally fucked-up people," he says. "That's what interests me. I hope it interests other readers, too."

Mathews lives in Birmingham, Alabama.

Review by: Donald Broyles on May 05, 2015 :
I've now read three stories by this wonderful writer. This is someone who values the craft of story-telling. In a few strokes, he is able to create characters that are interesting and well-formed.

I highly recommend this writer.

Review by: I. Readalot on March 06, 2012 :
The story line depends on the assumption that a gambler feeding a slot machine for a month takes ownership of the machine and goes off his rocker when someone else wins the jackpot on "his machine". Doesn't sound plausible at first, but with the number of nut cases running around blowing people up, who knows? Anyway, it's a good short read dealing with theft, retribution and punishment. Character development and editing are reasonably good.

Review by: Brian Borgford on Jan. 25, 2012 :
Great description of the casino environment. Very pathetic character, well developed. Written in the first person past tense indicates there is life after.
