Who Gambles?
 
Do Any of You Gamble?
I turned 18 in 1078 and lived in New Jersey. That was the year the NJ legislature allowed gambling in Atlantic City. My dad took me to Resorts Casino, and from the minute I placed my first bet, I loved gambling.

Got to my late 40s and decided to move here! I play poker and video poker. I've played most places. If anyone has questions about any of the gambling hall,s just let me know!

I was addicted to gambling several years ago. After many tries including professional help, which didn?t help by the way, I was finally able to free myself. I do have to admit though, that every once in a while I get the urge.

I like poker and craps, but I hate blackjack. I always lose.

I have lived in norther Nevada for thirty years and I lost more money sneaking in the casinos before I was twenty one. Gambling has no appeal for me.

I never tried craps mostly because I didn?t have a clue how to play it. On the other hand, blackjack was my game. I could most always come out a winner.

Lucky you, nwm. Wish I didn't have this love/hate relationship with gambling.

I agree with Mobilehomi; growing up in Nevada I got it out of my system before I was old enough to legally do it.
