TGIF! Do you gamble?

Do you gamble?  Do you enjoy a friendly game of poker or play the lottery?  What about playing the slot machines?

I rarely gamble, and never even remember to pick up an occasional lottery ticket.  I might go up the hill once a every year or two and play the slot machines for an hour or two but that's about the extent of my gambling.  To me it's more for fun than for winning and I never do it with the expectation that I will win anything.

fingers crossed

Not much. I went to Vegas once for a friends wedding and played a few slot machines. They put in casinos here a few or 5 or 6 or more years ago, and I've never been. And don't really plan on going.

I play the powerball and Mega lotteries.  That's the only gambling I do.

I've won, something. But not thousands or millions.

You sound like the kind of gambler that I am... not much of one.  lol

Did you win anything when you played the slots in Vegas?

What's the largest amount you've ever won?

We go to the casino and play the slots a few times a year but that's it for us. No poker or lottery tickets or anything like that.

 Recently, I won $28.00.  I told the guy (friend) behind the counter he made a mistake.  LOL!!

No, I didn't. I lost 75 cents. I was killing time while we waited for a few friends to get there.

Although I normally think of that as the cost of drinks. ;).

Not really. Ive been to a casino once. Had no clue what i was doing. I think it was the .25 machine. I had only played about $3.00 so far. Just hit a button and then all these bells started going off! I had no clue what was going on..the lady next to me said " your winning alot of $" ended up hitting for $500... Later figured out if i had hit the max bet button it would have been $3000

Other then that bingo occasionly and an occassional scratch off!

See that's always fun.  And, well, the discounted meals. ;)
