I dislike gambling. However, I will buy a ticket if it is supporting a project or organization that needs fundraising that I am in agreement with; like a private school, church function, or something within my small community.

I don't really get the appeal of gambling in general, serious gambling at any rate. I work far too hard for my limited resources to wish to risk them needlessly. That being said I did have a casino night years back just to have the experience. I went in with a strict limit on what I'd spend, played for several hours until I hit my limit and and moved on.

I also enjoy the occasional poker game with friends, again I have a strict limit which I don't exceed. The thing is, in a way I don't really see either activities as gambling in a sense. While both were obviously gambling in a technical sense, in both situations it's about experiencing something. In the first case the spectacle of the crowd in the casino, the feeling of the room, watching the serious gamblers sweat, and the creepers creep. Well worth the twenty dollars I spent, I probably that much worth of free drinks. Less than the cost of a movie, snacks, parking in some places and way cheaper than most concerts. But once was enough.

With the poker game it's about a group activity with friends, the pot is very low and the money is simply a way of keeping score. The winner usually uses the pot to buy pizza or something for everyone, so we're really playing for who hands over the cash to the delivery. Sometimes we play D&D or something instead, costs about the same.

I think a lot of my family who have a mind for math are more into gambling and coincidentally drinking than myself. I'm not really sure the reason for this.

I will wonder down this road for 10 minutes a week. I buy a ticket once or twice a week. It's not necessarily because I want to be really wealthy. I'd likely give most of the money away. I just want the process to be sped up for me to be doing what I love day in and day out. I likely would not change too much else, except doing a bit more traveling.

Gambling in general. More of a competitive thing that would keep me going than anything else. I like to win. But, knowledge that the house is set up to win, otherwise it would be broke keeps me in check.

I used to daydream about winning the lotto and what not. that came to an end when I started thinking do I really deserve to win the lottery and would my life be any easier or happier having won it. for me personally it seems like a blessing and a curse. In the words of Notorious B.I.G "Mo Money Mo Problems"

No, gambling is usually stupid, unless you're one advantaged in a gamble. If I decided to gamble I would make sure that I:

1.I'm ready to part with whatever I'm risking with the bet.
2.Price is significantly higher in value than thing I'm risking with, unless odds are in large part to my advantage, then simply adequate value adjusted to odds will be sufficient.

I wouldn't also participate in a gambling through entities that use it as a business model because in order to sustain themselves and make profit they would need to ensure that person will lose more than 50 % of time or "win" price of less value than what they put in.

Keno is one of the most advertised games. This game has come down to us since ancient China, and continues to be very popular. In a lottery ticket consisting of a set of numbers, all you have to do is mark the numbers that you think will fall out of the lottery drum during the draw.

I also like to gamble. This is my hobby and a good way to relax after a hard day's work. I've been playing blackjack and poker for seven months. During this time, I learned some interesting facts about gambling. This blog became my guide at the beginning of my career. Now I want to improve my knowledge in order to earn more money. This is my global goal.

You have a good goal, but do not forget that in a casino you can not only win, but also lose. My attitude to gambling is neutral. I believe that playing poker, lottery or other games, the main thing is to stop on time. I only play 2 years in syndicate casino code[link removed]. I like to try my luck, but my principle is not to make big bets, so as not to lose a lot of money. In addition, I always trust my intuition - I know when I should start a game and when it is better to wait for a better time.

I find myself getting absorbed into the "what ifs" and imaginations of winning a lottery prize, only to be, as one might expect, disappointed.

I am also prone to gambling in general because of my general optimism and entitlement complex haha.

Anyone else deal with this?
I don't have the urge to gamble AT ALL. I'll tag along with others to Las Vegas or wherever; there's lots of other fun stuff to do and look at. But I'll be at the nickel slots thinking, "Why..."
