Kathy Gilroy, a fervent opponent of gambling, earns $25,000
For most people, gambling is not a problem habit and can be actually be a good thing, especially for the few winners who sometimes walk away with millions. However, gambling can also become a sickness for some people, which has led to opponents of the leisure activity. Sometimes, these opponents and winners can be one and the same person, as we will detail in the strange story that we are about to tell you.
An anti-gambling activist
Throughout her life, Kathy Gilroy has been a passionate opponent of gambling. She never hesitated to defend her stand against the followers of this leisure activity, and she constantly criticized gambling because, in her opinion, it would often result in a dependency, bankruptcy and even crime. In fact, last year she fought and succeeded in banning a raffle organized by veterans of the military, which then lost $1.6 million.
Ironic twist of fate
Despite her position on gambling, this did not stop Kathy from winning a nice jackpot. In a sweepstake, offered in a gambling cafe last December, she won $25,000. When she visited the game café, she received a scratch card, which surprisingly gave her the win. After collecting the prize, she explained that she had a distinction between gambling and sweepstakes - she would take part in it without hesitation.
It's hard to dispute that in the end, sweepstakes are not a form of gambling. One could argue that her stance on the matter is not a little hypocritical. At this point we will let you come to your own opinion on the subject.
