    Nope.  I refuse to throw money away gambling (foolish behavior).

    I disagree Shuhak. Gambling is fun IF AND ONLY IF you are in control and set a loss limit. We do. It's been years since we went to a casino but we each allowed ourselves $20. We start off with a bang. The first $10 we exchange for quarters and play quarter machines. The second $10 we turn into nickels and play the nickel machines and when that's gone we're done with the gambling. Once upon a time long ago my sister, brother-in-law and I were at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. They took me there for my birthday. I was on an end nickel machine and I hit a jackpot! $285! My biggest score! I took them out for a very fine dinner and I bought each of us a memento of the occasion AND I STILL HAD MONEY LEFT OVER! It was very fun night and I was glad I could sort of repay them for their kind generosity in gifting me with such a fun birthday present. I learned to play poker at my father's knee so to speak. I taught my son how to play. A family tradition. We'd play penny ante. Sometimes we'd play with dried beans and had just as much fun. Different strokes. Now some folks can't control the gambling and it becomes a sickness. That's when really big problems occur. Thank you for your reply! :)

    Is that really all you can lose? You can also lose lots of money, and if you gamble enough, you can lose things like your job and your home.

    You can get something for nothing if it is given away. Sometimes it happens. Thank you for your reply and Happy Tuesday! :)
