I play the penny slots at casinos or on cruises.  I’ve actually won a few hundred bucks, which I think is pretty great for penny slots.  Darling Husband plays blackjack and is pretty good at it!

I play Craps. It’s stressful, but overall I enjoy it.

I like craps, blackjack and roulette.  I’ve won on them all and I’ve lost on them all, but I love gambling!

I’m wayyy too risk-averse to enjoy gambling that much. My husband likes to play blackjack when we’re in a place with a casino but I usually make him set a limit ahead of time of what he’ll be willing to lose, and then we walk away. It’s fun watching him play!

There was one time we went to the new casino that opened up near where I went to college just to check it out- he put in a $20 on a slot machine and won $42 back. I marched him right to the cashout counter to get our $22 of winnings and we left 🙂

lessa :  YESSSSS

we got engaged and married in Vegas if that tells you anything haha. 

I am picky about my slots. I have rare ones that I like and usually stick to them lol. Lord of The Rings, certain willy wonka and Wizard of Oz ones. Wheel of Fortune – i like stuff that gives you bonuses and free spins haha.

I have never won anything major, usually $40 or $50. $400 was my top. If i come out even or $10-$20 up then i am happy.

I also recently got into Black Jack with my husband. I only like $5 tables though, i am a timid gambler haha.

Hubby and I like gambling too. But we set a limit and play within it. Usually slots… we’ve won a couple hundred here and there. I too, like the slots with bonus games and free spins! I also love roulette, totally luck but I’ve won $100 on it before.

The best is that my Mother-In-Law loves the casino and every time we visit her, she wants to take a trip there. It’s hilarious though because she ONLY plays penny slots – one penny at a time. She can make $5 last 2 hours!

I don’t like gambling. I don’t mind sitting at a table/slot and getting free drinks though.

I live pretty close to casinos and only go maybe once or twice a year. Even then I’ll spend maybe 30 dollars on penny slots. Once it’s gone it’s gone. Ive never won more than like $80 because once I win any little bit I cash out lol. I’m not much of a risk taker.

I’d like slots if they weren’t computerized.  If I’m going to waste my time and money, I’d like to burn a calorie or two pulling a lever.  While I enjoy poker and other card games, I prefer it risk-free, like when we played it with tootsie rolls in college.

I’m not allowed to gamble based on my behavior at arcades and those little machines that push coins over a ledge.

I’ve never been a big fan of gambling. I don’t find it exciting or fun at all. It just feels like such a waste of time and money to me .

Only exception is poker nights with friends. My friends back home used to do that a lot and we would do like $5-25 buy ins and having the pot just made it a bit more competitive, which was fun and of course the few times I won it was awesome. 

But I’ve never had any interest in casinos or slots or any kind of betting on sports or races. I buy a lotto ticket once in a while and will buy raffles and 50/50 tickets at hockey games and events sometimes as well, but they’re usually for a good cause at least so I don’t feel like it’s money completely down the drain.

I only like penny slots with my dad. But we get 20 dollars each and just play them for a couple hours. Then we go to the buffet and stuff ourselves for awhile. It was a yearly tradition for us until I got married lol.

I’m not fond of casinos and the like. However, in college I was very fond of going to bars where men played poker and made wagers. Since I was “just a girl”, they would all give me helpful hints and assume I didn’t know what I was doing. But I’m pretty good at poker. After four or five rounds, I’d take the money and quit, leaving them to wonder whether it was “beginner’s luck” or whether they’d been had.
