        These casinos know, they are very smart, their tactics and advertising.. they know how to get what they want, give you what you want, and come out millions richer..

        I love the sights the sounds, the thrills and excitement of it all, when i'm in the gamblers mind, i think of nothing else, like a world away.. doesn't matter if i win or lose, what catches me and leaves me heavenly is the game itself.

        What is more important to you as a gambler, is it excitement, fun and thrills, trying new things, spending money for entertainment and recieving it so conviently or is it just about winning money, making money, taking that win and running being satisfied?

        I'm curious to know what it's all about for everyone..

        Appreciate any intake or comments you have or feelings about it..

        Okay, I will give the psychologist's answer!

        Yeah, there is the thrill of winning money.

        But, deep down inside, gambling pushes ALL the impulsive buttons.  Every darn one of them.

        My online playing is purely impulsive.  I win, yeah.  But, I do some VERY dumb things with online betting.  At land based casinos I love the "live like a big shot" feel.  My life is very hum-drum and no thrills.  But, at the casino I get to live outside that for a day or two.

        Well, it's always more fun to gamble, when you're winning.

        Years past, the casinos in Reno were great, but fantastic for the food. At times I really wondered if my gambling was being denied, due to the casinos buffets!!

        I do know if they had Shrimp, Crab or Lobster, my Mother would find me in the resturant, not the slots!

        i like to play for the thrill, not knowing if your next spin will be the big one that wins you lots, thats my personal reason for gambling, of course its always good to cash out a big amount as well.

        We all enjoy the thrill of gambling, the not knowing, the lights, the sounds, the action.

        For me however, none of that would matter as much if it wasn't about the money. I am playing in hopes of winning. I do not play "Just for the fun."

        Although it is a fun way to spend time, if I knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt I wasn't going t win, I wouldn't be playing.

        I wonder sometimes, because when i'm in it, it's almost like i'm hypnotized, the impulse being a source like an uncontrollable commanding voice. Without it, it's like a drug you can't live without... dependent on it.

          Its a form of escape - a way to forget your worries for a couple of hours.  Win or lose - doesn't matter but a win is a bonus for sure.

          This is very true, and i agree with you PMM if i were using toothpicks to gamble, would it be like this? Though you still feel like it's not the money.. lol

          Imagin....well, in many ways you are being "hypnotized."  The whole gambling experience pushes EVERY button which pushes you to gamble.

          I wonder if i'm addicted, if i can stop, if i will have withdraws. I know when i've been out hours gambling, when i come home to sleep, i still see the machines in my mind, behind my closed eyes.. and sometimes... i see a win, waking up out a of sleep thinking i won, realizing it was just a dream.. or was it. I get up grab my keys, get in car, drive to the casino, get out, start heading for the door.. ooops i'm in my PJ's... i don't care anymore..i just want to GAMBLE!

          Imagin.......You describe it all well!  Like I said in an earlier post on this thread:  Gambling pushes EVERY button.  So, if you have anything resembling a compulsive personality, or worse, an addictive personality, then gambling will GET YOU. 

          Personally, I am trying to stop online gambling, and just stick to land casinos...LOVE Atlantic City!  Plus, I win more at land casinos.  Online has too many issues and the compulsivity makes it easier to loose.  For example, at land casinos I rarely make a "dumb" bet.  But, online.....well.....ummm...ummmm....I make them all the time.  "Why, oh WHY did I hit the button again!?!?"

          I think that just about every gambler has questioned themselves at one point or another as to if they are addicted or not. I know I have, especially after hours of pushing that spin button. But I think what truly defines addiction isnt the frequency factor, or the strength in the desire, or even the enjoyment level but rather the compulsion to continue the activity DESPITE NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES. IE (gambling above your budget, going into debt, borrowing money, putting gaming ahead of your health/family/work).
          So...imagin, I dont think having strong desires that manifest in dreams is a sign that you are an addict. But that could just be my way of rationalizing it all.

          Tyes....you get an A+ in Abnormal Psychology 101! 

          Indeed, the TRUE test of addiction is the honest track record of damage:  Financial problems, damaged relationships, personal depression, decline in health, etc.
