Why do you like to go to the casino?

I find going to a casino fun and when I do go which is not often I like going with other people. Usually when we do go it is for the good food they serve and then when we are finished eating it is time to start a little gambling. We generally only spend around $20 sometimes a bit more. We are not really gamblers just players and we do not go expecting to win any large amount of money, we go more just for the fun of it.

I think it's fun to play the slots. It's kind of like a video game to me... it's great to win, but really I'm just there to play and have fun. I'm not addicted or anything though. I usually set myself to a budget and I stick to it.

I think it is fun also and i like playing the slot machines especially the ones with the Jokers for 25 cents. I'm not addicted either and i do not go to the casinos that often. I spend my $20 and then that is about it and home we go.

Thats nice to hear katamoi but gambling is not good for people because it might kill you in the end.I always remember regrets is in the end so advice is too before do a thing think very well about what you do

I think it is fun anticipating on winning a jackpot or at least a little money.We never spend more than we can afford to lose so it is always fun.

I did only go to casino once in my life and that was when I won tickets to go to Lake Tahoe. So the Caesars Casino was in the hotel we were in so I went to watch other people gambling..that is all lolz. It was a good experience anyway.

But a man from my home town would not share your view.He lost almost all that he had,all that he had earned with his hard labour in a casino in Nepal.

@else34 Yes of course he did because he gambled. I do not gamble and only went to watch the other people being gamblers.

Ocean Casesas Casino is a really nice place in Lake Tahoe, I have been to Tahoe many times when I lived in California but I also like North Shore. It is even fun just watching others play in the casino.

Both me and hubby love the Casinos. I could sit at the penny machines for hours. The lights, the noise, the action. It always has me intrigued. The food is always good too.

Oh yes the food is excellent and I like sitting at a machine and watching it go around and around or up and down whichever is the case. Sometimes I even come home with a bit more than what i went with and that is when I am ready to leave.

@Marcyaz Well, we never go to the casino with the mind set we going to win. We go because it's something we enjoy. We use our what we call 'play money'. It's extra money we set aside to go and do something we enjoy. We always end up getting our hotel stay free, and our gas. So when we come home with a little extra, it's always a plus.

@TexanTornado Yep if you go thinking you are going to win big you will definitely not win. Using your play money as you call it is good. I call mine my allowance for the week as I don't like going to the movies any more I don't spend any more at the casino as I would if I went to the movies. If you end up getting a hotel stay and gas you must win a good amount to take home with you. Good for you!!!

I haven't really been to a casino (except once on a family-vacation when we were driving through Atlantic City ... we stood up on a little 'bunker' while Dad played a few slot-machines), But we have some Native American casinos in Oklahoma, and there're always hot country- and pop-music stars playing at some of them.

Oh yes, there are some really cool Native American Casinos in Oklahoma like in the Shawnee, Ok area there are a number of them. I love it when they have the Country and Western stars performing.

My boyfriend and I go to the casino twice a year. We stay in the hotel inside the casino, we gamble a bit and then do some shopping. They also have a pool, weight room etc so we do that also while were there. I just don't gamble all the time I like to relax and have fun doing other stuff too. Hoping to go again before the year is over

My friends go to the casino and they like the excitement there, but I have never been to one. I guess I'm a bit stingy and the fact that I don't like to bet on gambling.

Me and my friends like going to the casino but we only usually play slots. It is really fun but I tend to always lose and my friend usually always wins so that pisses me off haha. Just make sure you know your limit lol.

Matt, sounds like your friend is really lucky and you not so much but it is fun anyway. lol Yeah that would make one a little upset. I also like the slots but once in a great while I will play the poker machine. Good idea to know your limit.

@MATT69AC Well you might do better playing the card tables, I tried that one time but never again. Guess i don't know enough about how they do things there so I will stick with the slot machines.

I never gambled in my life and I am not going to start now. I would go to Vegas or Atlantic city to see shows and have dinner. Although I have never went there. And I find it sad to see those heavy duty gamblers game thinking they are going to win. It is a losing proposition.

Yes because the odds are in the favor of the house (gambling establishment) some people just don't get it and are addicted.

Good for you Rose, like me you only stay for a time and only use a small amount of money to play with not like some people who spend their whole paycheck.

I enjoy an occasional visit too. I give myself a set amount and when it's gone, it's gone. I'm prepared to lose it and consider it as paying for my entertainment. Then if I win it's a bonus.

My father in law used to play cards and bet of course.He gambles for a very long time and he consider it as one of his leisure time.When he won in a game,he give us some money and we are all happy. We don't have a casino in my place and he sued to go in gambling house,something like that. As for me,I have never tried gambling and don't like betting some money,I've noticed I'm not good at it.
