A man wants to win a lot of money so he plays on the slot machines. But he is not winning. He only loses money. He loses 5,000 euros.

He gets angry. He has an axe and he goes to the slot machines. He hits them with the axe. He breaks them.

His money is not back but he is not angry anymore.

Interesting words: slot machine (machine where you put money and you can win more money), axe (thing for hitting other things), anymore (now).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
