I thought this could be an interesting thread to see what people would do with their gambling money.

Pretend your internet wouldn't work for a few weeks or a month, or your computer crashed, or your significant other said "hey, take a few weeks off"

Honestly....What would you do with the money you spend on gambling?


For me I am using part of my gambling money this coming month, I am buying something from Bed Bath & Beyond (men might not want to read further, lol)

They have an 11 piece "dorm room set" No I don't go to college or have children that live in a dorm, but it's a hell of a deal and I'm buying it. Gambling will have to take a hit this month. :D For twin size $79.99 you get comforter, sheet set, pillow, sham, fleece throw, 2 towels, hamper, and dry erase board. I just cannot pass it up!!! (they also have full and queen sizes, I might buy one of each)


Who's next? You can't gamble for a few weeks or month, what are you doing with that money?

If my computer was down and I can't gamble online.
I would Open my door from my house and get into a Bus or Car and drive 45 mins to Mohegan Sun Casino or 1 hour to Foxwoods Resort Casino :lolup:
If I don't want to gamble at all for the next 2,3,4 months I would just get extra things I need for around the house.
I say to all if you do gamble just gamble what you can afford.

I wouldnt ever deposit and play amounts that could significantly change my financial situation. I rather lowroll and then I can gamble and still buy everything i would have bought if I hadnt played.

I would use the casino money for poker.

We all agree poker is a game of skill right so that does not count as gambling eh?? :cool::rolleyes:

Right now as it stands after my major puter crash last weekend, I can only get some of my casinos downloaded. So as I read this im thinking to myself, jump in car there are a few casinos only a couple of hours away from me.
As far as spending what I would not gamble on line. I have only done that once.
I make sure mortgage bills food, dogs are well kept, send money off to kids.
Then the rest is put into a fund for me to do what i like with.
From my wins in the past month I have purchased a new car, tv video gaming,
and a few other things. I think this would be less as I like to as soon as I do win buy something to show what I got, rather then funds back into another casino account.

You know, I haven't really kept track of what I've spent in the last 5 years of online gambling, but I'm sure a large chunk of my mortgage would be paid off if I had never started.

Thankfully something clicked in my gambling fogged brain last month and told me enough is enough. Life is sweeter now. My hubby and I will still go to a land based casino 2 or 3 times a year on special occasions.

I still like coming here to see some of those amazing winning screenshots. But oddly enough, I don't get the urge anymore to make a deposit after seeing them. I sure hope it lasts.

A new car!!!

How much did you win in the past month if you don't mind me asking? (don't answer if you don't want)

If i couldnt gamble anymore, id buy more un- needed crap for my house, maybe a newer riding lawn mower for outside, the one that picks up your grass clippings, that would save a whole lot of time on raking the lawn:D

I dont gamble like i used to anymore, i put so much on my card and so much in my rainy day account, so far the rainy day account has more in it........wonder why?:eek:.................laurie

Hmmm
I am not sure . I have a pretty happy life.
The worst thing that can happen in life in my opinion is having a sick child so not being able to gamble is nothing compared to that . I am grateful every day for my healthy kids :)
I did recently buy myself a pretty sweet cherry red Dodge Ram in mint condition :D

So So True Silky, children and family should never play second fiddle to gambling, id much rather give one of my kids the cash to help them than spend it at one of many casinos and those that have smaller children, who would rather gamble online or at a B/M than take care of their childrens needs have FAILED THEN AS A PARENT IMO..............laurie

Hiya: I f you gamble quite a bit, then you should take a few weeks off every few months or so, and not to have to have your PC Crash to make you. To those who have never done that, try it, it is really good for the mental part of gambling, as your brain needs a break once in a while.

Because of my office/apt getting flooded over memorial day, and having my PC sitting on the floor, it got fried. That, and being in the process of moving into the house we bought, "Foreclosed on, and Casino money paid 1/2 of the 22k purchase price", i actually was forced to take a few weeks off.

I spend the time working on the house, and we got it liveable a lot faster than otherwise. ......:cool:

This morning I painted. I received a free can of paint from Glidden. My livingroom is brown and I am going to eventually paint it all yellow. It is wayyyy too dark in here, even though the brown looks very very nice.

Instead of wasting my money away I am now going to do stuff with my extra money. I will still gamble a bit, but not like before. I'm sick of seeing everyone else win and not me, so I will turn my house into the prettiest house ever. :D

If..if..if..if

If i met some people who are willing to pay thousands of dollars..for extreme sports or activities.just for few seconds of high adrenaline..
sometimes i feel i get the same feeling..for less than 50$..

If play for fun you always win.
