Are you a Gambler ?

I've never made a serious bet in my life... I can't stand the thought of giving money away without a guaranteed return on my investment

Re: Are you a Gambler ?

Couple of £30,000 Premium Bond investments, always get something back, and the chance,????? of a big win. Less than the Lottery?

Re: Are you a Gambler ?

A long time ago I bought 10 cars from a Ford dealer without seeing them, the dealer hadn't seen them either. In the 1970's tossed a coin for a Lancia worth at the time about £1500. Not now though, Mrs KG makes an occasional contribution to Camelot, poor souls.

Re: Are you a Gambler ?

the very occasional flutter on the horses (though it is SO fixed especially at the lower end), you get the inside info and you're quids in but generally as a punter it ain't worth it.

I do love a game of 3 card brag or Texas Hold 'Em though.

So, I guess, 'yes' is the answer.

And I once one 500 quid on a game of pool with a stranger

Re: Are you a Gambler ?

i bet a dollar each way on the greyhounds , its quite exciting & i genrally end up ahead as dogs are more predictable than horse's & jockeys.
I also put a fiver on the odd sport result or sub bet.

Re: Are you a Gambler ?

I but lottery tickets but don't really consider that gambling (although I accept in truth it is). Don't do any other type as I can't see the enjpyment in it - if you loose you wished you never did it and if you win you wished you put more on

Re: Are you a Gambler ?

Social gambling for the fun of it.

Bit of Roulette or Blackjack.
(Viva Las Vegas!)

Small horse bet if down a pub
with a big meet on the TV and
a bookies round the corner.

Lottery? No chance.

Re: Are you a Gambler ?

I do the Euro lotto, but that's it. I wouldn't even know how to put a bet on something if I went in to a bookies shop, all the wierd numbers confuse me
