Do you like to gamble? I love to go to the bars and play the VLTs. I could play them everyday if I had the money to. Do you like the casino's better or the bar machines? I don't like to go to the casinos because I just can't seem to win anything in them. But in the bars I seem to have more luck. Where do you go to gamble? Do you spend a lot of money when you go gambling? I only spend about $40 and that usually lasts me about 5 hours. I went last night and I actually came home up $40. And I got to play for about 6 hours and I loved it. I only play with one creidt which is 25 cents so I don't spend very much if I lose.

Hello dear chrislotz. I do not like gambling and I have never been to a casino, either. I was taught not to gamble when I was a kid. There are many people in our daily life who like gambling. Some of them win and some of them lose. Among my relatives, there are some who gamble by playing cards and majiong. But I do not want to join them for that. I would only like to play cards and majiong for fun, not for money. hehehe. Thanks for your discussion, my dear friend. By the way, I wish you would win the gambling as always or at least more than ninety percent. Good luck to you, dear friend.

I love to gamble. I usually only gamble when I go to Las Vegas, but I do like going to local casinos now and then. When I gamble I like to play a variety of games. Texas Holdem Poker, Slots, BlackJack, 3 card poker, and my most recent obsession, BINGO. I play BINGO everytime I go to Vegas. The last time I played I won $500 (it would have been $1000 but I had to split it with someone else). Usually the games don't cost that much to play. Any where from $5 to $50 or more, depending on how many cards you buy. I usually spend about $25 and that's good for a 1 to 2 hour session. Plus they have a bar in the BINGO hall so you can get free drinks just like playing the other games. In Vegas I like to play BINGO at the Gold Coast and the South Point. I think they also have BINGO at Palace Station and Sun Coast. For Texas Holdem, I like Excalibur and Gold Coast. Gold Coast has some really good bonuses for playing Texas Holdem.

gambling???nooooo....that is not good at all.its is a waste of money and time if u r not successful and the chance of getting success in gambling is very less.its may make u a millionaire or a pauper in a very short time.Worst of of it makes one addicted to gambling...i.e. if u once start gambling it is very hard to give it up even if you lose....so gambling is not the solution 2 anything perhaps it is a problem if u r not successful.

I only get to gamble about one weekend every couple of years. My husband and I go out to Las Vegas for every other anniversary. I love gambling in the casinos. I usually win enough each day to gamble with the next day. We always have a budget of 100 dollars per day, and we stick to it. It is a lot of fun. :O) Congrats on coming home with money! LOL

I like to gamble and find it entertaining, I always set myself a limit and NEVER go above it, to me it's fun and everything in moderation, to some people when you mention you gamble they are shocked and naturally think wrongly that you are addictive! As soon as I win I stop and walk away I never put it all back, I set myself an amount and I EXPECT to LOSE! That way I have had my fun and entertainment if I win something it's great but if I don't I have spent x amount of hours enjoying myself, I am NOT harming anyone and I keep within my limits. I love the slots and I am quite lucky. I have even won £500 and the stakes are soooooo small sometimes 1p a go, so hardly a fortune!

I live in a non-gambling state. You can get on a ship and sail out to the middle of the ocean and gamble. I did that about 7 years ago and had a blast. I've also been gambling in Biloxi, MS and the Bahamas.

I don't like gambling at all. I think it's a bad habit. Nobody can win from gambling. It is very harmful if you are addicted to the gambling.

I have tried it and really don't care for it. So no not really.
