I don't like to gamble, even in videogames :D. With luck games like roulette there's more probability to lose than to win and with card games like poker you have to be a good player and I'm not. I've played the roulette once at a casino but my uncle gave me the money for the bet ;) .

I grew up in Reno so by the time I was 21, the attraction wasn't there. I'd put a quarter or two in once in a while, but not often. When I worked at a casino in Sparks(adjacent to Reno), sometimes I'd sit and play nickel poker and have a drink. Now, when I go visit my dad in Reno, I'll spend about $10(that's for the whole weekend) at the nickel machines drinking free drinks. I also buy a $2 scratch-it once in a while, I like the crosswords. That's about it for the extent of my gambling.

Gambling is bad news. I was an impulsive gambler, I liked to play the pokies and poker at the casino. The more money you win the more you get hooked. Now I am going cold turkey, it is the only way, it can become too addictive and dengerous. It might start off small but then the problem gets bigger and bigger.

I don't gamble at all. I am not interested in it. Nobody can win from it. Actually I have never been to a casino yet. Gambling is a bad habit.

I seldom gamble and when i do, i'm not a compulsive one. The few times that i would engage into gambling is during family occasions when we seven sisters would play bingo games as part of our bonding time. But when they switch to card games i'm out already. I'd rather buy food or put the money into my piggy bank rather than use it for gambling.

Hi there! I'm not really impulsive when it comes to gambling. I usually do it just to pass the time. And my idea of gambling is like betting one peso for each game. I usually gamble in forms of "tong-its", a card game, bingo, and lotto. I bet on lotto at least three times a week and it costs twenty pesos per ticket. That's all and I can live without gambling at all.
