anyone here love gambling as much as me? :D

i love slots at the casino, vlts in the bars, keno in the mall, horse races at the OTB lounge, scratch tickets, betting on games... and i even like bingo. lol but i especially love roulette, cant seem to find anything anywhere about it unless its "proven systems" so i figured why not ask for horror or glory stories here.

hmmm?

Someone has a gambling problem! :D

Naw, I enjoy occasional visits to the casino, but I make it a rule never to spend more than $20 - $40 bucks at a time. I also try to subscribe the "cut your losses / quit while you're ahead" philosophy, you're better off financially, given the statistical likelihood of winning—unless of course, you're a math whiz and count cards at blackjack

I haven't played bingo since like, 3rd grade! :p

im lucky tho. lol. gambling has mostly been good to me, probably since i dont spend much, but play crazy so the wins are more noticable (100-1500). my best friend and i have been gambling since we were 12-13 going to bingo with his mom cuz we were bored. buying 7 dollar books n winning $100 dollars literally every time.

now we play roulette and are both pretty decent at it.

last time i played roulette i turned 20 into 220 in five numbers. 108 of that was the last number after i got a hang of the spins.

and last time he played he turned 20 into 250. but he did it his crazy way. one spin with a big bet on his pick. i think he might be better than me, he once came sneaking up and told me to put ten bucks on 0, so i did n won 360. he has two kids now so we go like once a month.

I have won like 20 bucks from a scratch ticket before. That's the best I've ever done with those things.

dont they have little gambling places where you work kj? cuz when the traveling fair comes here they have gambling games, like mini horse races, over/under, and pick a color. once my i went with my older brothers friend and he went damn crazy on over under as soon as we walked in. he won like 400 in about 5 minutes. he only had 60 to start, but he went 20 n pushed 3 times, 20>40>80>160 and then went back to 40 bets. i could never play 1 to 1 bets ever, too scared. lol. cuz the swing if u miss is too great.

If by gambling you mean, "pay to play a stupid ass game for a stupid ass prize" then yes, there are some. Other than that, no.

Re: Gambling 7 years 2 months ago #93939

I do think that is one thing a lot of people don't consider about gambling. They see it purely as a waste of money. But then they'll happily pay to see a movie or a show of some kind. Gambling is just the same, you pay for fun. And there's a chance you actually make money rather than pay. Still, you do have to be careful that you don't lose too much...

But a movie is like $7.50 for two plus hours of fun. $7 in a casino might last you two seconds.

You spend 40 -50 bucks at the movies? What the fuck do you buy man, 10 bags of popcorn and twenty sodas?
