    I agree cardinal. Especially the superstitious stuff. So basically the casino feeds real cash from superstitious beliefs of its victims... errr, I mean... Customers.

    When I play, I am totally aware of the odds and expect to lose all I gamble- and often do.

    But it's entertaining to do it- I'll spend as much seeing a hockey game or play. As a bonus, I have no expectation I will get my money back after a hockey game....
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Re: Do you like Casinos?

    I have never been to one. I am not opposed to gambling- it just never was anything that happened naturally in my life, and my interest wasn't strong enough to pursue it actively. If I did, I suspect that poker would be my game of choice.

    So you do not spend as much then. I saw in a documentary that gamblers actually enjoy losing.

    But how do you get your money back after a hockey game?

    I rarely go to casino's but when I do, I do enjoy it. The casino's here are some of the few places you can have a drink and smoke a cigar indoors and just have chats with people. Since the Casinos here are on tribal lands the state smoking ban doesn't apply.

    Re: Do you like Casinos?

    i will be at the Belliagio Hotel in Las Vegas June 8 in a Penthouse Suite for a few days, just to get away for awhile and do some fine dining and hit the craps table which is the only game i play.

    craps is the fastest game, and the player has the ability to bring the odds of the house down, due to how the player bets.

    i usually go to the Casino Royale on the strip, its just a very small casino, but they give the best table odds, on 1 table 100x, and the rest 10x.

    i will be gambling, eating, and drinking and enjoying my room service.

    Went to Vegas a few years ago - dropped into a casino. It was so busy and disorientating I'll probably never step foot in one again.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Nope, be it Atlantic City, River Boat, or Vegas and all the crap in between, I hate gambling. I mean, I throw money away on stupid BS, but gambling seems to be too efficient in those means with little entertainment payout. But I do know quite a number of folk who enjoy gambling and are entertained by it; and for them spending the money is fine. But they do recognize that they are spending money. They are under no delusions of "winning it big".
