What has your experience been with casinos?
« on: September 24, 2016, 12:15:25 am »
Hey guys. I live in hawaii where casinos are illegal but I am on vacation to the mainland and I visited my first casino last night! I put in $10 on a slot machine, lost it, and walked away. I ended up going back to the same casino, put in $40, won $110 and then walked away. Today I put in $20 and won $60, then I went to a different casino, put in $20 and then lost it. I still came out on top all things considered though. It was very fun.
It's probably a good thing they don't have casinos in hawaii...

I only go to casinos to attend live entertainment shows and to dine in at buffets. I never go there to gamble.

 I Usually give myself a limit and stick to it. Unfortunately I rarely come out ahead.

Ah Hawaii. I used to live there and loved it. If you get to liking casinos seems there's always a deal to get from HI to Vegas :) I've only gambled like 3 times in my life. Once on a river boat in Lousiana, which was tons of fun, and a couple times in Reno. I think I won like $80 :)

There is a casino about 20 minutes from my house.  I go often to see the shows, eat at the restaurants, or shop at their shops.  I probably gamble 3 or 4 times a year and will only allow myself $50.00 to lose.  I figure I don't smoke, only drink socially so spending $150 to $200 a year isn't a big deal.

Casinos are great! They are a fun place to enjoy a casual nights. It's always a great idea to set a specific amount and gamble no more than that. Any winnings can be spent on top of that's, but it's always nice to pocket at least some of that. Penny sits are the best!

I don't don't spend much money there.  Twenty dollars is my limit.  I get bored with them pretty quickly.  I never win much.

I went to the casino main thing is to eat there buffet.  But I do play a little, if I lost more than 50 dollars I'll stop.  The  most I won is 200.00 but split all equally to my siblings. :)

When I go to casinos, I spend no more than $40. I play slots mainly and I win very little.

I live about one  hour from Atlantic City. The  casinos can be fun. We only  take a certain amount of money with us( that we can afford to lose) and when it is gone it is gone. Sometimes we win and sometime we lose. Once I won $1000.
You are right, some of the casinos have some great buffets and shows.

I have never been to a casino but am heading to Las Vegas in December.  I was in Atlantic City before the casinos were constructed.  My aunt & uncle had a beach house that was bought and demolished for one of the casinos.  They didn't want to sell but had no choice....
Have a wonderful day!
