I grew up in Vegas and was surrounded by gambling, so I never really had a desire to gamble as I grew older. I did play the slots once in Lake Tahoe when I was 20. I ended up winning $250 and had to quickly switch seats with my friend. He was 21 and was the only person in our group that could claim the prize. I was lucky I didn’t get caught!

@ucme haha…my answer doesn’t quite make sense now does it. ;)

I used to bet in a football pool at my husband’s previous job. They would let the spouses play along. I must admit I enjoy the game more without money involved.

I love football but never bet other than an occasional game pool or steak dinner.
