    I have 5 phones. Always phone in the bets. I love talking to reps that barely speak English. It is so much fun spending 4 minutes to explain the bet.

    Sometimes I'll call in just for the human contact.

    Occasionally I'll start flirting with them if their voice is sexy.

    It's gotten me free plays and better lines.
