They aren't even real, but millions of people use them every day. They are a kind of money, but because they aren't money, Uncle Sam and others have no concern what you spend them on, it seems. There are people who mine for bitcoins but you can't hold one in your hand. A computer program goes through extensive calculations - a long and intensive process, and when the numbers are all finished being crunched, there's your certified bitcoin. When you gamble with them, they look like dollars, but they are only about 11 cents. That's my take on them. I use them because I get to play some really fun and cool slots I've only heard about. I got to go to the top of the Steamtower. It was a wonderful place. But until today, those really cool slots didn't really do more than charge me for entertainment. Today I discovered Rumple Wildspins. It was sorta love at first site. He was there on the reels, just hanging out, swinging around and he kept waving at me with his cute little innocent smile. I started waving back. Who could resist? And then he poured on the charm. During freespins, he showed up and stayed. Then he split into two Rumple Wildspins. Four. Each one all cute and waving and being there for me - all the way across and up and down probaably half of the reels. And he is such a wild one! My 40 mbtc that won the free spins turned into thousands on each and every spin as he filled up empty space with lovely boyish waving fun. What a guy! For the first time, I am up about 300% instead of down to zero. I can tell he likes me. I think we are in love!
