Now, these "friend bets" have never paid out. But I'm wondering . . . what would I do if they DID? Let's say I put Kelly's $5 in the dollar slots and I win $500? Or, what if I won the big progressive jackpot? (I know, it's not going to happen . . . but humor me.) :)
WWYD if you placed a "friend bet" and it paid off big time? Honestly, I'd have a hard time not keeping it for myself. Honestly, I probably WOULD keep it for myself (and kick my friend down a little something, but I wouldn't tell her that the $$ I won was actually on her dime). Maybe I'd split it with her 50/50. But I really don't see myself handing over the whole wad of cash. My feeling is that if I hadn't been in Vegas to *place* the bet, she wouldn't have won - right? ;)
