Oh, well, you need to go!! It's a lot of fun. Even just playing the slots. Adrenaline, noise, winning, losing. I just take a set amount of money that I can afford to play around with, and if I lose it all, that's it. No trying to win it back, just stop.

 

I was on a cruise one time, lost all my quarters in one slot machine, quit, cause that's my rule. One of my buddies on the cruise, saw it all, sat down at the same machine, and hit about 5 or 6 plays in. He said he knew it was going to pay off soon because I had been playing the same machine all night. I made him give me some of the money - he didn't think it was fair, but he was a good guy. :lol:

Casinos can be lots of fun if you go there with friends and are there for the entertainment. It's very easy to get hooked and can easily ruin people's lives...

 

It's like a drug

No, not really. People who get addicted to it have other problems. They would get addicted to something else, if not gambling. Addiction is the disease, not gambling, or drinking, or gaming, or heroin or food. The "agent" of choice may be different, but addiction is the disease that has to be dealt with - on a different level. ;)

I have gambled all over the world just to name a few. Nairobi, Stockholm, Monte Carlo, Atlantic City, Vegas, Mississippi,, big easy, Indian Reservation throughout the USA, Reno, Sydney, and recently in Cairo, Egypt... etc.

I have been comped RFB and stayed in $10,000 a night suite at Caesars, limo picked us up etc. you get the drift.

 

I had all of the rules, take money what I can lose etc. It catches up to you eventually and rules go out the window. I won $50k some nights. I currently have offers to stay at Plazzo and Caesars for free, when I enter they give me around $500 of free money to come and play, shows, food, airline tickets. Blah Blah.

 

Most of you guys are expert in Credit, and I am a noob. BUT when it comes to casinos and gambling I am one of the authority.

 

STAY AWAY FROM CASINOS.

 

On the side note, Yesterday, I had an offer from Planet Hollywood for a concert, I like the artist and I wanted to see, what the offer was. Guess what as soon as I logged on the Total Reward site, the offer pops up for Total Reward visa, I knew it was a soft hit, I applied those bastards gave me $15k limit. They will try any way to get you in the door.

Addiction is a pejorative. I've had periods where I've definitely engaged in various forms of excess including dubious substances but tended to emerge from them to go onto other things. Probably the most consistent addiction I've had over my life is a general interest in how things works. All kinds of things. I've probably spent more money on books and tech (but not while in school) than more traditional, um, activities. I stopped using stuff when it got to the point it interfered with my interests in science, math, and all things tech. It just was always more fun than the "stuff."

Hey, I love casinos too. I also love statistics so I have a pretty good idea how much I will lose or win on any given night and, over time, the losses are pretty predictable over a long time period. One doesn't go to casinos to make money but to have fun. I never, ever spend anywhere close to an amount that would affect me. The statistics are deadly if one does. Anything else is magical thinking. One expects to pay for the entertainment and that's fine.

 

I still like casinos but my spending on them has declined over the last 20 years. Not really sure why. I can afford it. Other things are newer and more interesting I suppose.

So who do I contact for a list that still works for TU?

It sounds amazing and I hope to one day go.

I have a very addictive personality , I think that's why I never went before. I'm getting better at handling it as well as my OCD as I get older . Now had I went back in my twenties , I would have probably lost everything I own. :rofl:

 

 

SN : I was born and raised here in NC . NC just recently (within the past 6 years ) approved the lottery. I remember as a teen driving to Danville or Martinsville VA to buy scratch offs- we felt like we were in Vegas :rofl: . The county I grew up in was "dry" and just within the past five or so years passed a bill to permit the sales of alcohol.

I'm a poor sheltered Southern Belle :grin:
