    The occasional round of poker with a few buddies, but only every couple of weekends or so.

    I do enjoy my roulette & am actually quite good, however my passion is slots ..
    I love slots , don't necessarily bet a lot but I just enjoy the difference in functionality between various slot operators
    Used to work for a gaming company and my dream is to get into online slot design.. might try and get my old job back ...

    If you don't gamble or bet how can you expect anyone to take your review site seriously ..
    its like buying a speedboat from a book salesman ..

    Oh, that's a good practice. I get my reviewers to play the slots before writing a piece as well

    I gamble a lot less than I earn from the commissions that I receive from gamblers.

    I bet differently depending on the occasion. For the sports that I know well, I gamble relatively often, however I might not put on a bet for 5 or 6 months, then there could be a time where I bet almost every day for a week. Generally for the sports I know, I use my knowledge to bet on odds that I consider to be over-valued, for whatever reason. Not to toot my own horn too much but I've won local tipping competitions several times and help others if the ask, I give them my reasons and they've always seemed happy to listen to me. So if the odds look juicy and I know about the sport, I'll have a punt, but I'll never go too big because anything can happen in almost any sport. I used to offer free tips regularly on one of my sites and I think that my tips were quite solid, they're still online so for anyone who could be bothered going back and verifying my results, go for it.

    Generally though, if I'm out with mates or at a venue which has betting facilities, I'll bet small amounts for fun, I like greyhounds because the form is super easy to read quickly, there's no jockeys to worry about doing whatever it is their trainer has asked them to do and the races are quick, results are in quick and then there's another race.

    Sometimes I'll go to a casino and throw a few chips around on the roulette wheel (or roulette computer screen if that's all there is), occasionally play some card games but rarely. I think the most fun I've had at a casino was in Sydney with a couple of friends the night before we were going to a music festival, I was trying my luck getting a 0 on the Big Wheel, there's 52 sections where the wheel can stop, 50 regular numbers plus 2 special green spots on opposing ends of the wheel.

    There are 24 numbers that pay even money. 12 numbers return 3/1, 8 numbers return 5/1, 4 number return 11/1, 2 numbers return 23/1 and each of the two green spots (zero and double zero to make things easier) pay 47/1.

    I found the fun part of this game is everyone knows how to play, no matter how drunk they are, and if you are just trying to double or triple your money, you have a chance of doing so without having to count cards, bluff, read form, know the rules - that can be a problem after a certain amount of beverages have been consumed etc. I find playing the Big Wheel fun because the whole crowd gets excited whenever it gets close to hitting one of the 47/1 spots if anyone has placed a bet there. Funny story, I was pretty hammered once and I placed my bet on the 0, and the wheel clicked over onto the double 0. Being quite drunk and seeing that it had landed on one of two green spots on the wheel, I started jumping around excited like an idiot, laughing and carrying on. Then when I had my chips taken from the table, I realized that I'd bet on 0, not 00. Made me feel like a bit of a fool, but I still had good time

    I have never gambled. When I got involved in this industry my learning curve was incredible. I have been to Las Vegas many times for conferences and again never gambled. That being said I enjoy the industry.

    I do gamble. But I don't visit land-based casinos, as I have a full-time job and usually don't have any desire to go anywhere after it. So, online casinos are a good alternative for me. But I think there are many people like me. And probably that is one of the main reasons why online casinos are becoming popular. I learned that the United Kingdom has become the largest sector of online casinos, and the two main locations of gaming, Macau and Las Vegas are losing their gloss. And it's not a surprise as online casinos have many advantages that are attractive for gamblers.

    Personally I dont gamble to make money, I prefer a nice friendly game of poker in my home with friends. Playing for a small pot just makes the buzz of winning more exciting!

    I still play a little poker at the casino, live, but not online anymore. I think I placed one sports bet last year. I might have played casino games 3-4 times last year at a brick and mortar casino near where I live, but that's about it.

    When I'm in the need for some extra cash I'll just fire up the 'moneygrinder' (my computer that is!), start up some poker tables and play away a few nights to increase my bankroll. Other than that, I do play some slots every now and then.
