    How many of you participate in legal, licenced gambling?

    In what ways do you gamble i.e. on sport events, online etc?

    Do you approve of gambling?


    I enjoy gambling, I bet on football and occasionally do the pools. I say I put a couple of bets on a month, sometimes big if I feel like I have a great chance.

    I also play online poker in varies forms, which can be very addictive so I like to control my myself and set limits.

    I play the lottery from time-to-time aswell.

    I do approve of gambling as long as you can afford to lose the money you stake and you set boundries.

    I don't gamble at all. That doesn't mean I don't approve of it though, I've just never considered it really. Its almost certain I'd loose more then I'd win, so I don't bother.
    I think its generally ok as long as the gambler knows his/her limits, and as you said, sets boundaries. I do think its far too easy to become very greedy with gambling though.

    Our state is anti-gambling yet we have the lottery and other things. They are contradicting themselves and its hilarious. I don't see anything wrong with gambling because it's up to the individual person whether they want to do that or not.

    We play the lottery (local and Euromillion) a few times a year when there's a very big stake to win.

    Last week I lost £30 on roulette, seriously what are the chances of black coming up 8 times in a row?

    I've played the lottery a few times in the past but that's it.

    In what ways do you gamble i.e. on sport events, online etc?
    See above.

    Do you approve of gambling?
    So long as it's legal and the person isn't risking too much.

    I gamble very little. When I do, it's going to the casinos with my mom. We were supposed to go this month, but I don't think that's going to happen. Maybe in February. I would say about 2-3 times a year.

    All i'd do is the lottery or euromillions if there's a particularly big prize.

    I tend not to gamble because i get FAR too into it when i do. I'm like "COME ON!!!!! AAAAAGH!!!"

    I do enjoy it. I just enjoy it a little TOO much.

    I don't gamble often, in fact the last time I did do it heavily was during a cruise to Bermuda a few years ago. The first time I played something I won and got something out of it, only to lose the rest of my money in the next few tries. Haven't really been in to gambling and betting money since then.

    I buy a scratch ticket maybe once every few weeks. I don't gamble a lot but I am certainly looking forward to going to a casino and getting my first few real hands of poker down.
