Gambling, like everything else is ok if you can handle it properly.

I will buy a lottery ticket or raffle ticket once in a blue moon and I can c*nt onone hand how many times I have been to the casinos since they have been here in Ontario....BUT I did go to Vegas once for a 4 day vacation and loved it....I also limited my spending on gambling though to 100.00 per day...or I would have been broke on the first day....I love the slot machines...but I know enough when to quit....and I usually do't take ay winnings home!!!!!!!


Like anything else I think gambling is ok in moderation....once it becomes a habit that makes other things suffer in your life though....therein lies the problem!!!!!!!

I've always been indifferent to it. Even in Vegas, I might play $20 worth of coins and lose interest. Every once in a great while, I might buy a lottery ticket, only to forget about it...smoking

Don't gamble anymore. Did once and used to count cards and had
some success but nothing to make a livin with. Now days I do not
gamble, or even buy lottery tickets and never raffle tickets. Rather
buy some good food. cool

It's not that I disapprove.

Believe me, I would love to win a ton of money to make my life easier.

But the chances of winning in most types of gambling are so slim, that I would rather save my money for a sure thing.

I'm not into Vegas, because if you go, you're there for a few days, and I do enjoy gambling. I go to Atlantic City about twice a year with a few of my friends and we go for the night. I take what I can afford to lose , yet have always come home with money. never have I come home broke, or losing what I set out to lose. We go strictly to Harrah's, and while we get a comp room, and comp dinners and breakfasts, the money we bring is for GAMBLING. Great deal of fun. I love roulette.

If you are not in the paring garage and by my car at 11:00 AM, you need to find another way home. that's the rule, and everyone abides by it. haven't left anyone up there yet...

SirenLydia: Hey mb....

Can you explain powerball to an English girl please.....


Powerball is a lottery game.

6 numbers are drawn (numbers range from 1-59).

To win the jackpot, you must match all 6 numbers in order.

The last number drawn is called the powerball number. If you match just that number, you win $3..match 1 number and the powerball number, you win $7, and it goes up from there.

If you match 4 out of 6 numbers, you win some money. 5 out of 6, you win a good amount of money (usually over $100,000).

The jackpots start at $15 million, and go up if noone wins. The current jackpot is around $72 million.
