Why do you play?

Hi everyone,

People have different reasons for gambling or playing.:p
My own reason is that I purely enjoy it as the feeling of playing a game gives me satisfaction-with or without a win. I have preferences such as black jack, poker, roulette or dog races and slots (of course) but I also go to the betting place next door-once a month-and place a small bet onto a horse race, which I find very exciting if I can watch it live or online.:yahoo:
I play if I have money that I can invest and I don’t play if I need the money for other things.:D I also have times when I don’t play and do other things instead. I love the variety of games that are on the market and I am fascinated by numbers.:clap:
Please feel free to say anything you want about ‘why’ you play...
Karen

1. To have some fun.
2. To have some money out of casinos' pockets.

It's pure entertainment.
If I win I win & if I don't I don't
And never gamble what you can't afford.

My Father always told me if I gamble & make a days pay Stop playing & come back another day to see how you do that day.

Honestly?...

1. For entertainment.
2. I'm addicted.

I would admit I'm addicted, but I don't have 'a problem' because I never gamble beyond my means. When I lose, it's never so much to bother me and when I win I always withdraw and spend the money on the house and family!
I recently (last month) bought my older brother a car from Ladbrokes winnings (I'm serious). Stuff like that is very fulfilling, and probably what keeps me playing.

It's strange that in the past week I'm probably 'up' close to £5000, but I've never lost anywhere near that in a week.

I will keep that line in mind...It makes sense as playing has ups and downs as it is part of life. (At least in my opion.)

I gamble because I thoroughly enjoy it. Have enjoyed it for the best part of 10 years. I have a bit of disposable income after I have done everything I need to (like spoil my Girlfriend, buy gadgets...:)) .. I also buy stuff with my winnings when I have a nice win. I have spent about $12k in the last 2 months (which were purely winnings) on stuff I wanted ...so I'm all :).

I cash out when I reach my target (which is sometimes high)... Just like everyone else, I have had some insane losing streaks. its all about choosing where to play and deciding when to cash out as I have found over the years.

Slots Rock :):thumbsup:

I vaguely remember having a long lost sister with the initials H1R.
It's all coming back to me now......
I like Gold coloured cars BTW! Just Throwing that out there for no particular reason...!:p

Entertainment and the chance of winning something.. We all know it is a loosing game in the end, but cashing out $2000 on a $100 deposit makes up for all the deposits without a withdrawal. For me atleast.

Yes, you right, it does depend a lot 'where' you play:):)

There are ups and downs, but depositing $100 and withdrawing $2000 is certainly worth the effort:lolup::)

I'm getting more and more the impression that CM is the perfect place to be as there are 'real' players here...:) The ones I met so far seem play with their head and hearts and for the right reasons, 'and' in a very conscious way-which is good:):)
