    Maybe a scratch card here and there, slots, sports betting, the weekly/bi-weekly draws, or larger ticket item lotteries for charity...
    ...we all like to indulge in the hopes that we may strike it rich one day!
    Do you Gamble?

    I rarely gamble.

    I will rarely buy scratch tickets or lotto tickets - but give them as gifts.

    If I do go to a casino, I usually put no more than $20 in a machine, and then I will just watch other people play (which I also enjoy).

    Do fish swim? LOL!!!

    I love gambling. It doesnt even bother me if I lose, its a nice distraction and a great way to zone out and have some me time. I love slots, keno, and the occasional scratcher.

    I've never been to a casino. Lottery tickets and scratch cards several times a year.

    I've never been to a Casino either, had to walk through one though on the cruise ship trip a few years back. I do take part in the group lottery from work.

    Casino a couple of times a year, sometimes I win , mostly break even and a few losses.

    We play the Lottomax every week but that's a bout it. Win lots of free ticket, $20 here and there but nothing big.

    Nothing except for the group lottery at work. Don't want to be the only one left behind if they win.

    DH & I have been playing our same numbers for 649 for 10 years. Maybe someday it'll pay more than $40. lol

    But other than that I do go to the bingo. Not because I'm hoping to win big but because I enjoy it. Usually costs me about $50 for an afternoon but that includes lunch. I've won lots of times. My biggest win was $1,500. More often than not I'm about even when I leave.

    I enjoy gambling, on a small scale. Once the lotto-max starts having max-millions, we buy a ticket simply because it is fun to dream "What If". We buy scratch cards from time to time, which comes out of our "coffee & treats" budget. We also enjoy spending time at the casino playing the penny and nickel machines for date night a few times per year, but we usually set a $20-$40 per person limit. When we do hit a small win, we cash out right away. We've been to Vegas a couple of times and after a busy day out in the sun, it is nice to unwind, grab a drink and spin the penny machines for an hour or so.

    I'll get a scratch card every now and then.
    I play in our office LottoMax pool.
    The lady and I will hit the Slots for a while when we're in Niagara Falls.
    Vegas...been there, done that.
    ...and we got into the Sick Kid's Charity Lottery one year too.

    oh...and rrroll up the rrrim right now too...that counts right?
