I have gambled a few times. At Foxwoods I like to play Bingo. I even won $300 there once! I don't really like the slot machines much though. I only go once a year, if that even. I don't want to become too into the whole thing.

I voted *other*
I love to gamble, LOL
However I only do so in Las Vegas.
We don't go very often.
That being said after not going for many years ..
I have been twice so far .. once this past September with my oldest DS
Just a couple of weekends ago with my DH for a HS reunion for him.
We love it, had a blast.
I play keno and some slots .. we actually did well

Hi Hugs,

I voted, No--never. Of course, that may change if PA becomes the next LV, with slot machines everywhere. In public bathrooms, in diners, ... Can legal prostitution be far behind? LOL.

A lot of our local school districts are opting out of the Act 72 that would have given them income from the slots, but would have stopped them from raising taxes.

I had to say other. Here in Finland I have only once played some slot machines on a ferry to/from Sweden. Although there are slot machines here and there. (Like a few in the front area of a stores and other places.)


In the US, I think I have only played slot machines 2 or 3 times..

And the most, total, I have gambled is about 20 dollars. Even though there is "The Mill" casino in my home town. I just don't have a need to gamble.


I have done a few scratch-n-sniff lottery tickets and powerball stuff..but nothing worth mentioning more.

Hi Katz,


I think even with it being legal and having it there, you'll be fine.
It is a recreation that many enjoy.
As long as one knows *moderation* .. it is a lot of fun :)

I gamble from time to time. IF we go to a casion we just play until we have spend $40...just to entertain ourselfs and see how long we can play for. We do pools at work for sports games and powerball...that's pretty much the extent of my gambeling.
