unknown@wiki ESL Podcast 249 – At a Casino


Hanna: Where have you been? I’ve been trying to find you. I just won $80 from this slot machine. It’s not the jackpot, but now I’ve broken even.
break even; 収支が合う

Tad: That’s really great. Maybe some of your luck will
rub off on me. I’m just about to see what the high rollers are doing. Do you want to come with me to check out the blackjack tables or roulette?
rub off on: 移る、影響を与える

High roller: 浪費家

Hanna: I’m not that good at those high- stakes games, where people bet hundreds of dollars on a single play! I’d like to get the comps they get, but I don’t have that kind of money to gamble with.
high-stakes: 一か八かの

Comp: complimentary 無料品

Tad: Yeah, I wish I had somebody rich to bankroll me, too.
bankroll: 融資する :to give money someone

Hanna: I’ll just come and watch you play. You know, I wish I knew how to count cards. Then, I might try my hand at poker.

Don’t even think about counting cards. If you get caught, you’d get kicked out of this casino in a minute. Hey, there’s a poker tournament going on over there. I want to go watch that later. But first, I want to get my hands on some chips or some dice. I’m feeling lucky.
Don't even think about it. そんなこと考えもしないで。/そんなことしちゃ駄目だからね

get my hands: 手に入れる

Hanna: Let’s go.
