If you wanted to gamble, would you prefer a casino, a card game with friends, a racetrack, two flies climbing up a wall, or something else?

That's what it's all about, Angela. I was a pretty keen gambler when I was young but a family will nip that in the bud. I've been to casinos a couple of times but the magic isn't there any more.

My husband got into the scratchers for awhile. However it seemed (and it wasn't just for him) that every time I would touch one of the scratchers it would be a losing card. I was everyones unlucky charm! LOL!

Hard to believe you could be anybody's unlucky charm, Yin. Of course, gamblers and lucky charms go together. Check out this link about the yin and yang of gambling. '

I have a very wonderful racetrack near me that has a lot of history. I love spending the day there. There is something really cool about betting the horses. I usually bet the horses according to a theme. The last time it was a beach theme. So, every horse I bet on had something to do with the beach. I never bet seriously, but if I had I would have won big that day. I won most races and most of the time they were longshots. So, the payout was amazing. I usually only go once or twice a year.

I haven't ever wanted to watch dogs race, I'd probably want yo adopt them all. I don't have a lot of fun at casinos anymore. Although, now that the kids are out and about that might change. We usually go to Laughlin or Las Vegas. It's usually a little vacation with some gambling. I happened to go and visit my cousin who works for a casino only an hour away. At the time I couldn't put my finger on it, but I didn't enjoy myself there and had to leave shortly after. There was this strange level of desperation there, that made me uncomfortable.

You don't surprise me. I've also sensed that desperation. It's a lot better if you can find a quiet time when there aren't too many people there but, in Vegas, I guess that's not going to happen.

I think the difference is that Vegas and Laughlin are vacation destinations. So, there is much to do besides gamble. The local places are only for gambling, so only the hard core desperate gamblers seem to visit those. Maybe that was just my take on it, but I felt like I needed a shower after visiting the local place. The desperation coated me like a film.

I play in numerous football pools. Do better than average. The Casino is a bit intimidating.

Where are you located Toxic? I know the pools are big business in the UK. We've got similar things in Oz but they don't have the patronage the Brits give them.

I live in the US, the midAtlantic region. Lots of NFL teams in close proximity, lots of zealous fans.

We get enthusiastic about our local teams too and there are plenty of small pools organised on them but nothing like in the UK.

I only gamble with my life, not my money.  Casinos are good for restaurants, and losing your money.

My cronies and I deal out the cards for a few bucks on occasion; maybe with a game on, some libations, its a guaranteed hoot. They think I cheat, but I know we all do. It tends to even out.

Casinos tend to flaunt their advantage a bit much, but they can be a nice night out, if you don't get careless.

I know what you mean. I've had a few non-casino) moments when things got out of hand but these days I'm too mean to gamble.

Well the cats took care of the rats so its roach betting time at the trailer park. Unless we find a old pizza then we count how. Many flies are on it

I was once looking after 20 guys working along one table and my mate was looking after the next 20. There were two cleaners coming along the tables, cleaning up, and I bet that my cleaner would get to the end before his cleaner.

When mine started to get behind I walked down to the other cleaner and talked to him till my man got back in front but my mate refused to pay the bet. He lodged a protest, appointed himself sole arbiter, and declared that I had nobbled his cleaner.

The racetrack is fun once in a while.  It's nice to win a little money, but it's also great to watch the beautiful horses.  (I haven't been in a few years .... Maybe it's time!)  I also enjoy a game of blackjack at a casino once in a blue moon. :)

I really enjoy going to the races, for me it's live action that adds to the risk of a bet. Having said that if you find a decent online site to have a little bet you do get a buzz. I've been playing at PlayOJO and SlotBoss recently, and done the whole online poker while at Uni thing!

As always though, gamble responsibly folks!

Hi Megan. I just found this. I'm not too keen on casinos myself. They're great for a couple of hours then I tend to get bored. That's just me, of course -- they're very popular.

I always enjoyed little bets to make things more interesting but was never willing to invest real money because I couldn’t afford to lose it and one day I decided to see if I could routinely increase my balance on the bookies I use. Try https://777score.co.uk/ This platform works pretty well for me and my wallet :D
