Question Of The Day - Wednesday, April 30th!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Do you like to gamble?

At the casino? How about lottery tickets? The football board at work? Raffle tickets?


I'm not a gambler. I don't have a problem spending money....as long as I have something in my hot little hand, to show for my money. I'm really way too cheap to throw money away at a casino. I have occasionally purchased squares on the Superbowl board at work, but I don't even do that very often.....and when I have, I've certainly never won. I guess I'm one of those "unlucky at love AND unlucky at cards" kinda gals!

Kelli, I'm with you. I'm too cheap to throw my money away gambling at casinos. I liked to buy an occassional lottery ticket when I lived in Michigan. Utah doesn't have a lottery (remember.... it's the beeHAVE State!) Ocassionally I will also join in on a baby board but that's about it. I have no problem spending money on tech gadgets but just can't make myself take a big gamble with my money!

Oh yeah.... I'll spend a lot of money on cats too!

Where do you live in Utah? I spent 7 years in Odgen. Well I lived in Layton.

It's probably a very good thing that I do not gamble as I live 10 minutes from Laughlin Nevada.

I used to enjoy Lottery scratch tickets, many, many moons ago, just not interested these days though.

I've never been a big gambler. I'll buy a scratch ticket once in a great while, but I never win

No I do not gamble. I do not buy lottery tickets or anything else. Just like you I am way to cheap to throw away money. I want something to show for my money.

I've never been to a casino. Maybe one of these days...

As far as the lottery, sometimes I"ll buy a $1 scratch off. I'm afraid to play any certain numbers because I know I'll get addicted. I'll be afraid that the one day I miss buying my numbers they'll win, so I don't even get started...

I gambled on our honeymoon in the ship's casino - playing blackjack was tons of fun ... til we realized we lost $300 by the end of the cruise! We had won and lost so it's not like we didn't gain anything - but we played til it was gone. I occasionally buy a scratch off or two, and if the powerball is high enough, I'll drop $5 on that. I dont think I'll ever gamble in a casino again haha. Too quick to lose money, and if you're not careful, you could lose a lot of it! (We limited ourselves for the most part ... one guy lost $8k on the ship gambling!)

I'm not big on gambling. Once in a great while, I'll buy a lottery ticket (usually when the jackpot is super big). On the very rare occasion that I visit a casino, I'll play the slots but always stay within my pre-decided limit.

I've never been in a casino and I really don't expect I ever will. But I occasionally buy a lottery ticket -- not a regular thing, and the jackpot has to be high enough that even if it's shared among a few winners, there'd still be a substantial win for each of them. I'll drop $5 on that, and then forget I have a ticket in my wallet. Santa puts a Quickpick and a scratch in each stocking at Christmas. And Baby pools, but that's not about gambling, really. We won the pool on our nephew's baby last fall and told them to take themselves out to dinner. That's about it.

I buy lottery tickets occasionally..

I also like to play on-line poker once in awhile.

I haven't been to a casino but would like to go one of these days..
post #21 of 28
I do, but not when I loose money! I do like scratch cards though!!!
post #22 of 28
i try to gamble, but if I lose a quarter, I am mad. I don't have it in me i guess, or I am just poor at games.
post #23 of 28
I had a friend visit me this past weekend and we went to Laughlin.
He put $20 in a slot and turned it into $30, then he re-invested just the $10 winnings in another slot and turned that into $73.

That paid for our dinner at Harrah's that night.

The next morning, he put $5 in a slot and turned that into $20, which paid for our champagne brunch.

It was totally awesome.
I don't do slots because they just confuse me
post #24 of 28
No, i disagree with gambling. I refuse to go to casinos,etc or support something like that because i disagree with it on a moral level and also don't want to loose any hard earned money.

I have to admit, I like gambling entirely too much. We LOVE the video gambling games. I don't know how many states they are in now (MD outlawed them a few years ago) but they are in almost every WV bar. It was one thing when I was younger and living rent free, but now that we have a mortgage payment and many other bills, we limit it to when we have "extra" money. We did win $2500 one night but that is rare.

Funny thing is, I went to Vegas for a business trip, and was bored silly on the slot machines. I play Keno every now and then (and won $800....once). The only ones I like are the videos one.
