  1. Sure I have, but I never gamble big. If I play quarter slots, that’s adventurous for me. Gambling is a type of entertainment for me, and that’s it. I never go to Vegas simply to gamble. I’ve only been there to visit relatives or on vacation with family.

    We once took a trip to Reno and I played Red Dog just for fun. I was ill at ease in using paper money for that game, but I enjoyed it, and only set on the table as much as I was willing to lose.

    I have never gambled in a casino. I’m sure I would lose big time if I ever did! I have, however, played a nickel slot machine in an airport! I know, I know…I live dangerously! 🙂

    I did for the first time in the fall of 2005.Played the machine spending $40.00.I walked out with $279.00.Since then I have tried it a couple of times and won nothing.I spent no more than $20.00 each time.It was a fun nite out,and I stuck to my $20.00 limit.No luck for me,only the first time.

    I have just to say I did. I don’t get into it at all.

    My mom loves it, though. She could get addicted if we had any casinos around (God forbid). Once I took her on a Bahamas cruise and all she wanted to do was play the slots. She had a game going when it was time to get back to the boat. She told me to pick the buttons to push until the end of her game-in-progress, so I did, and I was winning like anything. I kept saying, OK, let’s cash out, let’s cash out. Nothin’ doin’. We had to lose most of my winnings before my mom would agree to cash out. The money came out in nickels which I had to gather and cash in as the shuttle bus waited. My hands became black from the nickels (who knew money was that dirty) and I just had to wash them, so my mom hobbled as slowly as she could to keep the shuttle bus waiting so we wouln’t miss the boat. What some people won’t do for their slots! She was overjoyed to discover there were slots on the boat too. Sigh.

    I have, but it’s been a long time! It’s fun to say you’ve seen it and tried it, but it never really did thrill me. Sitting in front of a machine feeding it your money isn’t exactly heart pounding excitement to me. I’ve never played blackjack b/c the dealers scare me and I don’t want to mess up! I would like to go to Vegas just to see it not even to gamble. SKL mentioned above that her mom loves it…my grandma loved it to. They had a riverboat casino in their city and I guess she went quite often with my aunts. It sounds like she was a lucky one too!

    I have gambled a little on those machines that some bars have. We don’t have them in MN but they have them in Manitoba and some states but I have never been to a casino. Gambling also bores me to tears and I can’t stand how quickly you lose your hard earned money.

    WHO has not!? We had so much fun back in the day going to the casino. Went a lot with Shane and Eric and friends. It’s fun to try and win sometimes. But now I do not like to throw money away!! Las Vegas sounds good one day when we are ahead with money.

    When I go to Vegas I always set aside money for eating, hotel, shows, and gambling! When they are met…I stop! It is too fun!!! Love all the noise!!!! Crazy?

    I love going to the casinos! I have been to Vegas 3 times, Reno once and we have casino close to us over in Lousiana that we go to every once in a blue moon.
    I am like Doraz, I set a limit of how much money I can use and when it’s gone it’s gone.
    I love craps and black jack the most. I do not care for the slot machines for some reason.

    Sure! We have a few riverboat casino’s where I live and a BRAND NEW Casino that my wife and I went too about a month or two ago. We rarely go but it’s fun to do a few times a year.
