    On a Cruise Ship

    On all the Mexico Carnival cruises I've been on, they actually let you go to the casino when you're 18 because you're in international waters.  They're fun...I like to play Texas Hold 'Em.  The only downside is all the smoke...I once went to an Alaskan cruise, and they...

    There are many players out here in sin city.

    Hoping to win easy at the slots. Smoking cigars and drinking shots. Wearing a game face to obscure and tie knots.Gentlemen play at the tables, laying down their cards they need not sell fables. A game of skill not of chance, they gamble with passion and romance.While the players...

    Not That Great

    I live within a 10 miles of two very large casinos that have taken over my small hometown. I would say, for me, it is impossible to live here and NOT go to a casino. I really don't see what is so alluring about casinos. All the drinking and the smoking is a real turn-off for me...

    I Enjoy Them!

    I really enjoy the atmosphere of the casinos.  I have been to Vegas twice and have loved all of the activity!  I also went to local casinos and they are fun, too.  It's a super place to people watch as well...if you're into that sort of thing!

    Well who hasn't been to one

    unless you're under age. When I was 17 I used my older sisters ID to sneak in, even though I'm not a big gambler. (Naughty naughty)

    I went to the casino tonight.

    I'm not a gambler but I have fantasised about putting £100 on one number, winning so I could then put £1000 on one number again and have that come through. Fantasy over. Lesson quickly learnt. Lost £100.

    Rarely Have LuckMargarittaVille is a new casino

    in our area. When it opened up, everybody was talking about it and I saw a few people there I knew occasionally in public.When I walked in, I was taken away by the atmosphere. It's like the place was made out of pearls and quarts. The machines were magnificently upgraded; they...

    In Las Vegas

    A few years ago, at the end of a tour I was on I ended up spending some time in Las Vegas. I spent an afternoon in some of the casinos, walking around watching some people gamble. Not very exciting but since I was there anyway I wanted to find out what the allure is.

    In Connecticut...

    ...Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun...Everyone raves about Foxwoods, but I thought it was too big and flashy. I much preferred the smaller cozy atmosphere of Mohegan...We had a quiet unhurried dinner and it wasn't too busy the night we were there. We also left with more than we spent...

    Many, In Fact

    Eh, personally, I think they really aren't that great. But, if cigarrette smoke, gambling, and buffets are your thing, go for it. ....Ok, I'm probably being a bit harsh but its only because once you go to alot of these places, they lose their novelty.

    Hit Meh

    I can see how people can get addicted. Beautiful lights and sounds. Free drinks. It is so fun. Think I'll go this weekend. Maybe Lady Luck will be on my side.

    Did A Little Spending

    I've recently came back from a job interview in Vegas, and of course, I had to hit the Casinos. I mainly went to the buffet and they were good, but I ended up putting a 5 on roulette and won $175 bucks. I some times wish I can be an Advantage Player, but Ill stick to the poker...

    People Watching

    I am not a gambler, but there is something fascinating about being in a casino. When we go up to Las Vegas, we will budget about $200 to lose, and keep it at that, if we win anything, it goes right back in our pockets. Our favorite thing to do is sit at the coin slots and people...

    Vegas, Macau, Manila

    I've been to a lot of casinos in Vegas, in Macau, and in Manila where I live. I just don't play because I'm not yet 21. I love casinos because of its grandeur.

    It was a lot of fun.... until we lost 60 dollars on the slots... Boo on that.  But, my husband and I had never been.  We ad a good time, but I don't think we will ever go again.  I mean, I could have gotten drunk 3 times over with that money we just threw away...

    Demonic Presence

    You may think I'm crazy for saying this, but each time I've visited a casino, I've felt evil presences lingering around me. It was almost like they could jump right into me, and I feel myself become angry for no reason. On the outside, they often look like beautiful, modern...

    Loved the Buffet!

    I went to a casino (Foxwoods) for the first time with my now-husband.  I've since been about 4 times in 3 years.  I had a good time and enjoyed the scenery.  I'm just normally tight with my money - or if I'm going to spend, I want it to be something...

    As a matter of fact I work at a casino; the

    biggest casino in my state, Casino Arizona! Casinos are fun places to be if you enjoy gambling and can gamble responsibly. Too bad I never win big though. XD
