They lose their money there and you get 50%.<br>'They win about 40% of the time so they keep coming back. It's easy to lose, easy to win.<br>'If they lose I get about 50%, so if they lose US$1,000 dollars, I get $500.<br>'If you bring a lot of customers, it goes up so you can get 75 per cent of the loss.'<br>Andrew admits that most of this hefty sum was made in the past two years and suggested that global recessions have made his work easier.<br>'Sometimes I feel bad but often I do not,' he told Jordan, also from Toronto.
