  • Depends on how good you are and what games you play. That said, the term 'the house always wins' comes to mind.

  • I live in Las Vegas and play the slot machines from time to time. I have won up to $300, but over the course of several years and twenty bucks at a time, several months inbetween trying, I doubt I've broken even. My husband plays video blackjack a couple of times a year and has won some. Nothing major. We don't gamble often - you really can't if you live here - and consider it entertainment only.

  • If you know how to play poker, and I mean play poker you might have a chance, but unless you are willing to risk a bunch of money in high limit slots (I mean $10 slot machines) it is doubtful you would win anything, I have won money before, but also lost, it isn't a way to make money, but a lucky chance kind of thing!

  • Remember the odds favor the house.

  • not very...
    I have been in casinos MANY times- we LOVE Vegas, but we only play with what we are willing to lose. Yeah- we leave with maybe 100 more than we came with here or there, but usually, we lose a little.
    Hubby did win 1,000 an hour before our wedding though- good thing too, because we only had enough to eat while we were there to begin with! We went home with about 300 and were able to actually have a little fun :)
    Went back (to Laughlin) the next year and lost every dime we played with.. guess .they wanted it back ;)
