    I came to the conclusion a long time ago that many Jehovah`s Witnesses are very superstitious in my opinion.

    If after leaving the JW`s or even sometime before leaving the JW`s you may have been tempted to use the pokie`s /slots or the lotto , or even the Roulette wheel at a casino

    I have known one or two or even three that have done so ,how about you.?

    Now did you know that if you add up all the numbers on a Roulette Wheel it adds up to 666 .?

    Now I have no problem myself playing Lotto ,Keno ,Scratchies ,etc,however ,would I ever play the Roulette Wheel ever again ?

    Actually, I think you will find that (mathematically speaking) the betting odds are far better on the roulette wheel, than any of Lotto, Keno, scratchies, etc. At least that is the case in Australia. Roulette wheels in Australia, have only 1 zero, but I have heard that in other countries they often have 2 zeros.

    The best odds are blackjack, as long as you make the correct decision on every occasion. Further, there are only 5 decks of cards in the blackjack shoe that the dealer uses, and mathematicians have worked out a trick where if you count cards as they come out using a certain formula, occasionally a situation will emerge where (because of the cards left) the odds are above 50%. However, casinos are well aware of this, and if you hang around a blackjack table for long periods, without playing, the casino will kick you out. They are only interested in half drunk dumb customers, not smart ones.

    Personally, though, I have would have absolutely nothing to do with any of them. I never ever gamble, and I hate going into a casino, even for a social event, as I find the whole thing a distasteful taking advantage of the foolish. I don’t even participate in office sweepstakes for the Melbourne Cup, if I can avoid it, without anyone noticing.

    Met my missus in a casino while I was playing roulette. I've got a pic somewhere. She was a trolly dolly..

    Like everything else, have fun, but don't let it get out of control.

    I have played at casinos, but it's not my thing. Every now and then I try my luck with the Lotto or the Power Ball, but so far no luck. I have much better odds at getting randomly selected at the airport, though.

    I like to go to the casino maybe once or twice a year. It’s fun, I’ve won lots of times, and I’ve lost lots of times. I usually meet up with old friends there and we have fun catching up while drinking and gambling. I’ve even played Bingo at the Catholic Church it was fun! I’ve not played roulette but a couple of times and didn’t do well :-)

    The thing with gambling of any sort is only to play with a set amount you can afford to lose and hopefully come out a winner .

    And never try to recover your losses .

    If you do have a win use it to benefit yourself in some way by getting something you need or want for you personally or your home or loved ones.

    The problem with gambling is it can easily become an addiction and that is a real problem that can destroy marriages and families.

    And society/Governments today are hypocritical as to their approach to this problem ,advertising is all over the media to wager in one form or another and on the other hand advertise against gambling.

    Though I guess they are trying to strike a balance ,however they do benefit financially from gamblers overall.
