I lived 19 years in Nevada so it doesn't turn me on anymore. Now that I live in Washington I miss the Silver States casinos. The Indian casinos here lack the, umm, I don't know, class, excitement, tradition, I can't peg it.
Anyway I do on occasion venture in and usually get a cold beer and play Blackjack or the wheel. Never got into craps much. And I never play the machines here. I really do miss runnin' all my quarters through a poker machine before I leave a 7-11.
So, with casinos almost everywhere, who here gambles and whats your game?

A guy walked up to me last time I was in Vegas and asked for 90 bucks for medicine to help his wife as he was from out of town and broke.

I said, "How do I know you aren't just going to take this money and use it as gambling money?"

"Gamblin money? I gots gamblin money." He responds.

I spend about 60 bucks to gamble and thats it on the rare occasions I go.  Had a friend who would make 20-30 grand a year playing black jack.  Eh.

Hell yeah.  Me and Bill Bennett broke a blackjack table once.  Good times.

I'm not a hardcore gambler but I like to play poker. It's really hard to find a decent game anymore, local law enforcement have been cracking down on "illegal" gambling the last few years. Favorite game is plain ol' 7-card stud.

I play golf 2-3 days a week. We usually play a 4-man / $10 nassau and everybody usually has a $5-10 side bet with everyone in the group.

I've never been to a casino, but if I did, I'd probably stick to blackjack just based on the odds.

I like to play blackjack.
Nothing else really holds my attention.
I'll pop a few dollars in a slot now and then(won me $2600 once), but I cant sit and play at one for hours/days/weeks like them old ladies can.

Trying to play roulette every once in a while when I can.

Money is too hard to come by the first time. I'm a business owner, so I gamble every day by default. No need to piss it away at a card table.

I stick to 5 card draw with friends, its so hard to plan that I lose little money. When we do get together and I lose, it is always worth it (if you know what I mean).

I'm poor as hell but whenever I get a chance at the indian casinos when I go visit my friends at Central Michigan University, I change in 10$ for rolls of nickels and spend hours wasting them one at a time.  Makes me feel like a big shit when i hit for a 100 nickels and the free drinks.

I don't gamble. Im pretty good at just about any card game until I put money on it. I don't understand how it works, but it just makes sence not to gamble in my case.

We have the cruises here in south Florida, I usually go on these, I was heavy into it a few years ago and won several thousands of dollars at it. One day I just didn't feel it anyomore haven't been back since..

Stupid ass 21, Pai Gow, Quartermania and Megabucks.  Some lucky fck just cleaned out the Megabucks a little over a month ago at the Excalibur in LV.

I will not even play the state lottery...  no gambling for me.  It would cut into my gun money.  [:)]
