    More than the zero dollars I've made on last two MegaMillions lottery tickets. Maybe I'll be fool enough to purchase another ticket for the $450 million pot this Friday?

    As an expensive form of entertainment in a casino, I don't see a problem in moderation. Some things like scratchers and lottery tickets are a waste of money.

    Is entertainment all it is.... A scientific study showed that poker players and casino regulars suffer less from dementia than those who don't. Now I could be lying here, but I bet you my bottom dollar some some PhD student will do their thesis on it in the next few years.

    Why does it feel like I entered an alternative wormhole here?

    people don't understand gambling research what you gamble on and you will find an edge. Inplay football is a nice way to look at the world of gambling..

    Interesting topic. I think too much of anything can be problematic for those with addictive personalities. I've seen folks in casinos sitting around with the insides of their pockets hanging out, and that sort of breaks my heart. However I don't see an issue with responsible gambling. That means not betting more than you can afford to lose, and walking away when you're not winning.

    Well, I have mixed feelings and opinion about gambling. I think it is not a very bad thing, if you can control yourself. And if you do it, you can even earn some money, which is pretty good of course. Just stop on time and here is your money. I also play new video slot games online. That is kind of relaxing by the help of emotions. You feel a little bit adrenaline and that is great.
